I think I responded to this:

George feels a the constant "baggage" of having to take care of Lennie,

If I was alone I could live so easy. I could go get a job an' work, an' no trouble. No mess at all, and when the end of the month come I could take my fifty bucks and go into town and get whatever I want. Ch 1

George has to live with the guilt of killing his friend.

"No," said George. "No, Lennie, I ain't mad. I never been mad, and I ain' now. That's a thing I want ya to know." ch 6
