Guarding our eyes is not only to keep our eyes from seeing bad and inappropriate stuff, we also guard them so that when we do use them properly we should know the truth and see the good in what we should see.

If we believe that Hashem rewards us for every small Mitzvah, and punishes us for every small sin, then that tells us how precious we are to him. That every small thing we do, and even the thoughts that we have, are meaningful to him and he cares about them, and therefor he wants us to do them in the best way possible.

If Hashem has trust in us, why then don't we have trust in ourselves too. And if Hashem loves us no matter what, we too should love ourselves no matter what.

Darkness cannot be pushed away, but when light is introduced then on its own the darkness will disappear. So don't (only) try to get rid of the darkness, rather bring in some light, and the darkness will go on its own.

Having struggles does not mean you are a failure, it means you are human. Humans have struggles while angels don't, and Hashem wanted us as humans fighting with the struggles, and not just cut them out completely.

Being that Hashem runs the world, we are responsible for what we do but not what the results will be. So if you see yourself fighting the same struggle every day, you are not a failure, you are just fulfilling your mission.

The world was not created for the sake of pain, hardship and suffering. but it was created to take all that pain, hardship, and suffering and to grow stronger and closer to Hashem despite all. So don't look at this world as a dark one, rather its a stepping stool to reach higher.

Part of our mission is also to learn from our experiences, discover ourselves and figure out what the underlying causes are and heal them or change what we need to change. We're not meant to go in circles blindly.

Hashem does not care about the mistakes we make in itself, he cares about US and wants only our success. Therefore our mistakes are important to him, and he wants us to improve, so that we become closer to Him, and become the best people we could be.

If there is any time in your life that's important, it is this present moment. The past is gone and the future is not in your hands yet, so all that's in your power right now is this present moment. So use it well, without any worry of what happened in the past or what will be in the future.

We did not choose to be born, Hashem did. So its not that we need something out of our life, its Hashem that really wants something from our life. So when you do the best you can, you are not only doing it for your good, but mainly you are fulfilling Hashem purpose and reason that He wanted from you.

For a person to talk is no big accomplishment, its only natural, but for a bird to talk, is a big accomplishment being that it is unnatural. For a great person to do something great, is only natural, but for someone simple and heartbroken to do something great that's something unnatural, and that's an accomplishment.

(סוטה ט, עמוד א)


ולכן אל יפול לב אדם
וכו' גם אם יהיה כן כל ימיו במלחמה זו כי אולי לכך נברא וזאת עבודתו לאכפיא לס"א תמיד

When a Child starts walking and falls what do parents do? They laugh! Are they mean to the child? No! They are enjoying to see and help their child developing a new skill. What does Hashem do when we fall? No! He is not out there to get us, he is enjoying to watch and help us in our development.

In the dark we feel lost, because we cant see even our own belongings. When light is introduced, nothing around us changes, its only that now we can see all those things that we already had. So never think that when life is dark you are bad, its only that the darkness is not letting you see all that you really have in yourself.
