you are a tree

A citrus one, mature enough to bear fruit.

Bad fruit just falls. You don’t have to do anything about it. You don’t have to say, “Hey, bad fruit, get off of my branches.” You don’t need to wait for a fruit picker to come and take it away for you. The bad stuff just falls away, and you don’t notice or care, because it was just bad stuff. It’s a little hard to let it go at first, because it grew on you, and it was fruit, and you didn’t want it to go rotten, but it’s rotten, so let it go. The good fruit, though, ripens and keeps growing. Sometimes people pick it and then you don’t have it anymore, but there’s still other good fruit, and other flowers that open. Good stuff has a way of recycling itself as long as you stay healthy.
