In this picture, Kubo is dealing with something that gets in my way from time to time. Pride. Kubo and Monkey are escaping the sisters to find the three pieces of armor, as if making it through a snow storm wasn't already going to be difficult! but Kubo is irritated over having to listen to Monkey; due to her being overprotective and narcissistic. Believing that he doesn't need her protection, he wants to Take on the sisters on his own. But the truth is, none of us are able to complete all of our goals on our own; we're not meant to anyway! Kubo can't complete his quest alone; and he won't have to if he makes the right choice. So he needs to quickly decide wether he'll go his own way, or take advantage of the help and support he has. Like we all should.
