You're right - thank you for reminding me of that!

A soldier's success is limited by his comrades - so if I'm succeeding, that says a lot about you!

Also wanted to mention...obviously, everyone has a different relationship with their rebbe, but I was pretty down when I realized that it's going to be another month or two before I'm dating again. Makes me feel like I'm not moving forward (even though I know I am), which makes this whole thing harder, especially my loneliness.

But talking to my rebbe helped - didn't make it better, but it did help. It was nice to know that he cares so much, that he loves me and cares for me no matter what, and that he has faith in me.

We all have faith in you here. You are no longer alone!

Did you listen to the Shiur from Reb Tatz in the Chizuk e-mail about the loneliness?

Touche, IT25 

Boruch Hashem, things are going well. Hashem has truly helped me out (and I davened for exactly this), as several of the women I was involved with have found people that they can truly connect with and form long-term relationships with, and that are treating them well, so I'm happy for them, and also know that that cuts off the possibility of returning to them.

have a great shabbos, all, and a freilichin chanuka - may we all continue to light up our own lives, and the lives of those around us.

Just posting to express again my appreciation to all of you for being there for me. You've helped me continue to fight my major nisayon, and provided the framework for me to fight nisyonos that have been with me for years, without any thought of truly fighting them.

Thank you Habib!  That's the point of a community like this - All of you help me be strong. I hope that in some way, I can give back and be part of the movement that we're all part of, trying to improve.

Can I ask for a translation of "GSBG,"  though?

Reb Guard - I have not listened to it yet, but I'm going to look for it now and download it...Thank you!
