They are definitely not MY ideas. I take them from wherever I can find them. Some posts I take from others word for word, some I take the ideas from others and rephrase them, and some Hashem sends them directly from His great wisdom to my little brains.
Enjoy!

One would not call himself a bad person for making a wrong turn, he might call himself a bad driver, but not a bad person. Let us never make the mistake and look at ourselves as bad people for making mistakes, we might have done wrong things, but that does not make us bad as a person.

Just as there will never be an act that will turn a human being (literally) into an animal, or a jew into a non-jew, so to there will never be an act that will determine a person BAD. A person by definition cannot be bad. A person is a soul down on earth, and a soul in essence cannot be bad. All that can be is that one can use his soul for bad doings, but the soul itself will not be bad.
Or in other words, we use our powers of the soul sometimes to do bad stuff. But not that the soul itself is bad.
