I guess it's like that chassidic story about the man who went to his rebbe to ask advice. He was blessed with a large family, and the house was just too small. First the rebbe told him to bring in his chicken, then his goat, then his cow and each time, the man went back to say, that the house was still too small. When all of their animals were living with them the rebbe gave new instructions:
"Take them out."
A short time later, the man rushed back to his rebbe thanking him:
"The house truly is much roomier now."
