OMG Hashivali is done with the 90 days clean !!
Amazing, I'm so happy for you !

You have to know that your thread is in my opinion one of the most powerfull in term of chizuk, determination and bitoul of your own will to let Hachem manage your life !

I'll continue to follow your progression, but in the wall of honor from now !!

Hashivalisesonyishecho now seriously speaking and in honor of Pesach chag hageula.
Have you ever thought of changing the title of your thread to something like from tragedy to redemption or something like that. "A tragedy of the human condition" is kind of getting outdated. What do you say brother ?

You're right. It's shows a lack of emuna. Hashem hasn't created a tragedy just an opportunity to work and grow and serve him.

I don't know how to change it, but if I'll have a few minutes to figure it out or if anyone can help, the new name should be:

From tragedy to redemption

Go back to your first post and edit it you can change the title there. That will change the title in the thread listing but not on individual posts.

You can also change the title on a new post (like I just did) and all future posts will inherit it until someone changes it again.

Mazel Tov! Continued Hatzlacha, and KOMT!!

I suppose it's good that there should be a zecher of the old outdated hashkafa. It shows the progress. Like having a hanging Haman is far better than no Haman at all to begin with.

I don't know.
Now, it sounds like a movie: from Rags to Riches, or Beast to Beauty, or Garbage Pile to the Alter's Pyre.

To me it sounds more like the Haggadah. Meavdus Lcheirus, Meyagon Lesimcha etc.

You guys are adorable. I'm open to suggestions. (Should we make a contest?)

Wow Hashiva , I knew you were going to take the offer ! I feel very flattered. But you know what now the title has so much hope in it . It sounds so good that after a tragedy C"V there is a redemption from it. And maybe one day we will come to realize that the tragedy wasn't such a tragedy after all but just it was plain ignorance from our part. Either way KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!

Mazel Tov on your success! Continue to stay as vigilant as you were on the 1st day! Lust is cunning, baffling and powerful! I never doubted you'd make it, even for a second!

Funny, I saw 12 replies on one thread and I was really confused because there is only one thread that continuously gets so many replies and that is Tragedy of ... Then I saw the name just changed. LOL.

Hatzlacha!
Much Hatzlacha!

I believe that that is the key to success. If one is really(but really really) sure that he won't fall, then he wont. And if his friends make him feel that way then they have a zchus in his success, so that's the case here for sure.

That brings me to the next discussion on an upcoming post when I will have the time to post it iy'h.
