What Hashem wants from us is progress not perfection. So if you are not perfect, no need to worry, that was never meant to be, but those small changes is what Hashem IS looking for.

If a boss of a business sees his business going bad, it can be very painful, but if a worker sees the business going bad, he is OK. If we look at ourselves as the boss of our lives, then we might have disappointments in life, but if we see Hashem as our boss and we are His workers, then when things don't go the way we want, it will be a lot easier to accept them.

It's not that we don't want to be good, it's just that we sometimes forget what we really want. It's not that we don't want to be good, it's just that sometimes we forget how to do it.

Every morning we thank Hashem for giving us back our soul. in other words, every morning Hashem decides if this specific soul is needed for today, and if the answer is yes, then we wake up alive and well. So every day that we are alive Hashem is saying - 'you are needed for this very day'.

If there are endless amount of angles doing their job to serve Hashem perfectly, why would Hashem create human's that don't really do such a perfect job? Well, one thing is for sure, that a perfect angle is - an angles with NO flaws, while a perfect human is - a human WORKING on his flaws. An angle is perfect but cannot grow, while a human cannot be perfect but can grow.

Only in the darkest times do we really get to appreciate the gift of light, and only when one feels imprisoned does he really get to appreciate the gift of freedom. So let us never forget, that every small effort we make to break free of our struggle, is surely worthwhile and very rewarding, no matter how much work is needed to get there!

While on a journey you might at some point get a bit lost, but that is normal for someone going on a journey. So never feel you are a loser if on your journey you find yourself lost, that is part of getting you to your destination.

If your goal is to be average, then you will never rise above average. Put your standards above average, so that you will strive and head in that direction.

Anyone who overcame these struggles, at some point in life said, 'I am lost forever with no hope'. But with Hashem's help lots of people did recover, each in their own way. So when you feel lost, down and not worth living anymore, know that lots of people said the same, and with work, effort and honesty they were able to see life in its glory!

By nature us struggles can fall, and have a hard time controlling ourselves in these areas. It's only that Hashem is the one holding our hand so that we can live day by day clean. So when urges hit, don't forget - 'That's only normal'. But remember that you can withstand it, maybe not by yourself, but with Hashems help we surely can!

Every project starts with a Decision. So the first step to recovery is a strong decision to change. And of course we have done that many times and failed, but without it nothing will ever change. The trick is not to make the same resolution every time, we should learn from mistakes and decide accordingly.

Going on a journey might not be your goal, but sometimes it definitely teaches us a lot about life. You might be on a spiritual journey with ups and downs, it might not even be by your own choice, but it definitely teaches you a lot of great stuff about your spiritual life.

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! 

As it says in the possuk, "Ani Hashem ha'sho'chein eetam b'soch tum'a'sam"

and like it says,Shuvu BANIM shovaim- Return you wayward CHILDREN
we may be wayward , but were still Hashems children !(i think i read it in one of Rav Shlomo Volbe's ZTL seforim)
thank you gyehelp2017 for such a nice thread!

if we look at others to compare, we will never reach our own true heights. If we look at others to learn, we can reach higher than our own heights.
