Just when the caterpillar thought it's world is over, it became a butterfly. We are never put through challenges so that our world should come to an end, Hashem puts us through tough times so that we can transform and become something so much greater than before.

Even when our children are doing bad stuff we still love them, we might not like what they are doing, but our love for THEM will never go away, because they are OURS. Even when we do stuff that Hashem does not want us to do He still love us, He might not like what we are doing, but the love for US will never go away, because we are HIS.

Happy people don't always have exactly what they want, they make the best of everything they have. Having struggles is not something we want, but if that's the battle Hashem wants us to fight, then lets be like proud soldiers and do what's wanted from us.

Lets remember these ideas, and life will be so much better. "Its never too late to change", "no good thing we did are to small", and "no bad thing we did are too big".

Some people actually grow from their life struggles, while others........... just don't see the growth yet.

If only we would know and believe how precious we are to Hashem, we would never doubt that Hashem forgives us, no matter what we did and how much we did.

The bigger our expectations are, the smaller are our chance to achieve happiness. The bigger our acceptance is, the bigger the chance for happiness.

If we believe that we can do damage, then surly we believe that we can fix (R' Nachmen of Breslov). Lets not forget, Hashem created us humans in his image, so by nature it is easier to be good than bad. Sometimes we just don't see or we forget the truth!

When doing Tishuva remember two things. 1) Never forget to who we are returning - To our beloved father, not to an angry monster. 2) Never forget who is returning - Hashems beloved child, not some stranger.

After falling and giving in to ones urges, we never celebrate. But after doing a Mitzva - and especially if it did not come easy, we celebrate. Because when our true self comes out we feel joy and therefor we feel and want to celebrate. So remember who you really are, don't get fooled by your artificial self.

Important quote from Cordnoy
"The need is a perceived one. There has not been one reported case on these pages of a death occurrin' on account of not fulfillin' that need

“I avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.” 

"My recovery must come first so that everything I love in life doesn’t have to come last."

Feel free to pm me, currently a lucky choson which merited to have discovered gye 1.5 years ago which BH totally changed my life from one extreme to the other!

הנותן עיניו במה שאינו שלו, מה שמבקש לא נותנים לו, ומה שבידו נוטלים ממנה

(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

To expect life to be tailored to our specifications, is to invite frustration. Just let Hashem run our lives, and life will be so much more peaceful!
