It is definitely tough when you are in bed and the urge is strong. Obviously exercise or a walk around the block are not practical. One eitza is to have a chaver to call (and if it is late make sure he does not mind - some guys phones are off and you can leave a message) and simply call and share that you have a strong urge. Usually sharing that, and specifically if you clinically say straight out what you want to do, kills the urge. If all that does not work, the old timers here used to say "Well there is always Woodford".........

I hope the nisayon is over.
Dovid hamelech wanted hashem to test him so he could prove his loyalty. At that point he had never done anything which could count as an aveirah. He had had a very trying life. Yet, asking for a nisayon did not end well

So the way see it, a nisayon an indeed attest our love for hashem and it shows that we are ready to do hard things to repair our side of the relationship (hashem has always loved us just the same) and that should be appreciated but not welcomed.
Afterwards we should be grateful to have had it but until it's over, I think we should try and get rid of the nisayon ASAP through distractions or really in any way

Maskim maskim obviously of course!
Im not happy for nisyonos, just expressing a thought that goes through my mind sometimes which I believe is good and positive.

Had a pretty inappropriate dream last night which I found surprising given that I’ve been so good with my thoughts lately...
I thought it was a “wet dream” but bh when I woke up I wasn’t “wet”
But either way, it was weird to have had it...

Re: Make it to Yeshiva 13 Sep 2020 20:19 #355018

You know, you're the second post I've seen today that had a non - wet dream recently. Literally the post I saw before this one. So it means you're normal not weird. Don't pay attention too much to dreams. 

You're doing great. You're attitude to that nisayon recently was fantastic. To use them to grow is kinda the whole reason why they're there.

Keep on inspiring.

p.s. You say 'that's fantastic' while you are clutching your broken leg? Woah, I don't give you nearly enough credit for your attitude!

Here’s what’s bothering me:
1. My learning is shver-missed shiur two days straight 
2.Im not feeling well. So I’m in bed and my mind is stuffy
3. I feel like though I don’t feel well, I can still push myself much more
4. texted a girl last night. So beneath me I know.. I deleted her number though and if she texts me back I’ll just delete it again or block it
5. I feel like I’ve been so shver in my Avodas HaShem, in learning davening etc and it feeels like it’s too late to get things together before Rosh hashana.

These are my thoughts and feelings.
Thabk you all for listening and any eitza/thoughts would be appreciated

Funny - you beat me to it.

I was gonna ask how you’re enjoying being in Yeshiva...

You gotta be passionate about what you do and if there’s a block, it’s often easy to overcome, but sometimes with a little outside help...

Thabk you all for listening and any eitza/thoughts would be appreciated 

1) I've been having a similar issue myself.

Its easy to run out of steam. I'm not not learning, but its hard to try as hard as I used to. I'm going to link a shiur that gives chizuk in this area. Listen to it if you want, it may give you the pump you need to get through zman, and the discipline to keep plugging after that.

ravkallus.com/miscellaneous-4/ (first shiur. Not sure how to link more specific than that.)

2) Refuah Shelaima.

3) See 1). With an addition, we say in tefillah 'satan milefanainu U'leachareinu.' My Rosh Yeshiva explains L'achareinu is the satan sometimes puts his hands on our back, and says do more more more until we fall flat on our face. I mean, analyze your day, and make sure you really can do more, before feeling bad.

4) You don't have to feel bad about texting your Mom... But seriously, however you got that number, not much more you can do then delete it like you're planning.

5) See 1).

All the best.
