IN golf they teach you to hold your grip on your club loose. It is all about the swing. If you stress too much on your grip you will not hit the ball or the ball will fly in a direction you did not want in the first place. Same when you learn to ride a bike. If you are sitting too tight on it, it will be more difficult to learn. So loosen the grip.
Also in your life. Loosen your grip. On material things, ego, what you say, your emotions, relationships, etcetera.
Once you start holding on to everything in life, in time it will be more difficult to loosen the grip. Sometimes people will be unable to do it.
Most of us know this but it is so hard not to get attached to others, to material things, to life itself.

There will always be bad days in our lives. But as long as we understand that those are just moments in life, that we can choose to let it all be a bit looser, we will feel more free, more at ease.

Same with relationships. If you are holding on too tight, chances are you are creating a stressful relation instead of a loving one. Loosen the grip.
