Tending to the Rose Bush

One of my assignments at home is to tend to the rose bushes. I was cutting off the dead heads today and was thinking to myself how much tending to a rose bush is like life. A rose cannot begin to bloom or even grow if there is a dead head above it. I thought about how life is kinda the same way. You cannot grow as a person or even "bloom" until all the junk is removed.
Lol, I dunno if that makes any sense, but that just what I was thinking about.
