Depressed? Cut Down on Porn.
Editor’s Note
 
What do you focus on?

A man went over to the male chasidishe photographer taking pictures of the women at a wedding and said to him: "I don't understand - how can you come over to the women's section and look at the women for 5 hours straight?"

The picture-macher answered: "When I look at them, I don't see women - I see dollar signs!"

If we are focused on what we need to do: real life, like parnassa, family, getting things done, etc., then we don't see LUST everywhere we go, even when it's in front of us!

Torah
 
Adar: How can we make ourselves feel happy?
 
By GYE

Simcha is the number one tool against the Yetzer Hara. When a Jew is happy, the Yetzer Hara can't bother him.

The Pasuk in the Artscroll Chumash says: "Mishe Mishe Mishe Nichnas Adar, Marbim Marbim Marbim Besimcha". The Artscroll Rishonim explain that the repetition of the words "Mishe" and "Marbim" in the Pasuk come to teach us that we need to be VERY VERY VERY beSimcha!
