thats so profound and so impressive (shows a lot of progress) and serious and kabalistic (dam ne'echar venasa chalav) that its almost too much for the JHF serious

when it comes rosh hashono and you cant take in yom tov before wishing all gye members a gut yoor
when going forward gets tough, its merely a sign that you are going uphill, just give more gas
put your sobriety first; before your wife, before your kids, before your avodas HaTorah (except for the 3 that are יעבור ואל יהרג) Without sobriety you won't have any of those things!

...you chat with one of the better posters and feel like you're talking to someone famous

Re: You know you're on GYE for a while when... 06 Oct 2014 08:22 #240931

totally agree!
i used to look back all the time saying "oh no! what have i done! Hashem help me erase the past." and i never heard a response.
finally i started looking forward saying "Hashem i'm leaving the past to you and i'm forgetting all about it. help me have a good future. help me from here and on be the person You want me to be." and that's where i realized Hashem had been waiting to help me all along
