Guard Your Eyes - Forum Kunena Site Syndication Fri, 20 Sep 2019 15:57:34 +0000 Kunena 1.6 Guard Your Eyes - Forum en-gb Subject: Towards self-awareness - by: GaviF
I am starting a new topic for myself. I used to post in the 'towards 90 days', but I realised that for myself, personally, that is not what I am going towards. My hope to post a short post every Friday afternoon and that this will help me in my commitment to towards this exciting journey ahead.

I realised that  this journey, at least the point that I am at, that it is about self-awareness and that the issues that permeate throughout the struggles I have with content and masturbation are the same themes permeating throughout many other areas of my life. I  have realised that the more aware I am of myself in general, the more connected I am with reality and thus the more realistic I can be about my approach and the more in tune with God and my vision on this Earth I am.

I am not expecting perfection, but greater levels of growth. Already, thank God, this journey has been invaluable for myself and the gifts of growth that have come about are beyond what I could have dreamt of.

I go forth hopeful.

Hope to respond/update next week Friday - all the love.]]>

Subject: Managing Lust like Asthma - by: Yidyidyid
When managing asthma (a lifelong medical condition in which people can have trouble breathing) a person will often need two different sets of medications:

1. "Controller" Medication: this is a medication that must be taken daily regardless of the persons breathing status on that particular day. This is a constant medication running in the background to prevent breathing issues
2. "Rescue" Medication: this is a special medication that is ONLY used in a breathing emergency (i.e. an emergency that the "controller" medication was not able to ward off).

I think lust needs to managed like asthma. 

​Feel free to share your thoughts.

Subject: Esteem-trouble and learning questions - by: Dust2Dust Do you guys think I should switch from Gemara to Mussar? I want to fear G-d more and have more energy to get initiative. Furthermore, is learning with woman or conversing with them casually appropriate? I go to a pretty modern Hillel where girls and boys learn together and eat meals together. Maybe I should stick with talking to guys?

I just wanted to give a public yasherkoach to the anonymous person who has been having signs posted around town advertising the amazing work that happens at GYE. It is a huge zechus to share this amazing program that has saved thousands of neshamos (zillions, if you count all the neshamos saved from being brought down with no where to go, if you know what I mean) It should a big zchus for you whoever is behind it!!

I just wanted to ask you if there is a sensitive way you can make it clear that the program has also helped many people struggling with hotzoas zera levatala issues besides internet addiction. I am personally having a tremendous yeshua in this inyan (be"H it should only continue) and so many people can be helped with this, whether or not they also struggle with internet issues. I don't think it is as known that the GYE program also address this issue. Maybe a sensitive way to say it is something like that GYE also helps people with other kedusha challenges, or if that's still to vague maybe its okay to say it straight that thousands are being helped with shemiras habris. Not exactly sure what the best way is, but I think one  way or another it should be clear. So many people struggle with this!

Please keep up your amazing work!!

Subject: Am I really an addict? - by: dying4freedom Break Free Thu, 29 Aug 2019 00:36:07 +0000 Subject: Embarrassment and Shame - by: SFTTsrvnt I have for the most part been a quiet person about personal issues and what I struggle in. I don't know if it's because of trust issues, or because I'm ashamed and don't want the people I love and care about to know this about me. I've tried to be a good "kid" my whole childhood and got that reputation, and now as a young adult I'm ashamed and extremely embarrassed to still have this problem. I'm in a position where kids should look up to me, I'm their role model. But inside I'm torn, I feel that I am lying about who I am and what I really represent, that I practice the opposite of what I preach, and that I'm a phony lair.  
Joining this group has been a humbling experience so far today, I feel a little weak and exposed, but at the same time optimistic. I hope that these feelings soon will be in the past and that I will be the one sending chizuk and not the one asking for it. ]]>
