" There once was a baby circus elephant who couldn't break free from her leg chain, though she tried and tried. Eventually, she gave up altogether. Years later, she still had that little chain around her leg. Although she was strong enough to break free, in her mind she had long since accepted that she could not. Emotional chains, after all, are the hardest to break. "
