Only someone trustworthy is given big missions to accomplish. So if we see that we have really strong urges in the most essential parts of Yidishkeit, we should realize that we are trusted by Hashem himself with His most essential missions, and in the end we 'will' win, because He knows who can be trusted!

A wonderful idea with lots of "Taam"
I'm sure it will be received with great aplomb
for Chizuk and inspiration and insight
The Yetzer Hora to help us fight
only one question I have at this time
Is it necessary for our posts to rhyme?
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

וּבְיָדְךָ כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה וּבְיָדְךָ לְגַדֵּל וּלְחַזֵּק לַכֹּל

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

If we define even 'one' wrong move as a 'fall', so then withholding even 'one' wrong look should be defined as 'success'. So lets keep in mind, that any given day that we keep our eyes to ourselves even just 'once', is a successful day!

This comparison is a very true, important point and also very hard to accept & register. Because practically it just doesn't measure equally to the human mind, a fall is activity playing out in the world, refraining is just inaction, lack of any physical happenings. Looking for reinforcement on this one. Hopefully someone can elaborate here.

For clarity's sake, not 'every' wrong move is a 'fall'. There are slips and there are itches which should just be dismissed and gegangen veiter. Acting out is a fall, a glance on the street, even a look is not a fall. Being too harsh will backfire.

Parents have a special soft spot for children that go through struggling times, and especially when those children are in pain, the parents mercy has no end. So to Hashem - our father, has a special soft spot for us, and his mercy on us has no end.

R' Aharon Lopiansky talks about this in his book, Ben Torah for Life.   ​This is what makes it so hard.  We feel that we are not accomplishing anything thing since we are not proactively doing good.  It's why we need to change our perspective on this and recognize that refraining from acting out is a big accomplishment.

Overcoming challenges is a necessity for growth. So next time you confront a challenge don't look at it as an obstacle, rather look at it as an opportunity for growth.

Feeling depressed after a fall, is like feeling depressed after a slip on the ice. Of course it hurts, but we all understand that the right thing to do is to stand up and continue on our way, even though we cannot be sure not to slip again.

True story: A guys house burnt down while he was away for Shabbos, after Shabbos the wife called her husband. Wife: Right everything Hashem does is good? Husband: Yes! why do you ask? Wife: Because our house burnt down! Husband: You got me on this one, you are right, it must be good, being that everything comes from Hashem. So my friends, right everything Hashem does is good? . . . . . Yes! So then all our struggles and hardships are truly good, because Hashem is the one making them!

Definition makes all the difference. So having a trigger does not have to be defined as 'acting out', all it means is, a few min/hours (sometimes days, but not forever) of discomfort, nothing more than that. Please have that in mind next time you get triggered!

When R' Akiva saw that after a long period of time even water can make a hole in a rock, his life was changed forever. It was not the 1st drop that did it, nor the 2nd or 3rd, all those drops together did it. So yes, every time we say no to our urges, even those that are just a small drop, they DO make a difference.

Healthy parents love their children not because they are the best, but because they are THEIR children. Hashem loves us not only if we at our best, He loves us because we are HIS children!
