Answers by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, Directors of Captain America: Civil War, on Quora:

Joe: At the end of Civil War, Cap drops his shield because Tony tells him he doesn't deserve it any longer, and perhaps he doesn't. His responsibility to himself is now in conflict with his responsibility to others, and he will struggle to resolve that. His road forward involves figuring out who Steve Rogers is without the shield.

...

Anthony: As storytellers we wanted to create a conflict where both sides were perfectly valid. In the pursuit of that we were repeatedly flipping from one side to the other in an effort to strengthen each against the other. We did this from the earliest point in the development process to the very end of the edit, so now we are too mixed up to say.

...

Anthony: While we love ensemble storytelling, and much of our filmmaking work has included ensembles, this was the most amount of characters we ever used within a single story. On top of that, these are all beloved characters played by amazing actors. Finding a way to blend so many strong characters into the story and finding ways to make them shine, even with limited screen time, was perhaps the most challenging (and most fun) part of this experience.
