More than we need, less than we need.
What is the correct amount? How do we avoid the clutter? Speaking from a spiritual viewpoint, I say with conviction: "Lord, purify me. Help me to throw off that which hinders me." That's exactly what He does. Let go of the things like ugliness of the past, hurts, offenses, and wrongdoings. Vengeance is not yours to repay; God will contend with them. Avoid teaching yourself how to manage your transgressions by remaining attached to them.
Sometimes rather than pack; we need to unpack.
