when im spacing out and my teacher says the word "essay" and i jump
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life

You know you're on GYE for a while when you know you're on GYE for a while... why is there any need for any other indications?

....When a part of you feels like you are going through a hard time, just because you see someone else is.
....when a part of you feels like you fell, just because you read that someone else did.
....when a part of you feels like a million bucks, just because you read that someone else is doing well.

Such a special connection I feel to the oilam. KOT!! to all.

instead of serching chizuk from torah
you search it in GYE.......
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!

GYE is before Torah. Ask Dov.

הסיבה שיש דברים קשים העוברים עליך היא בגלל שהאדם חושב כי "אני עומד" שהוא מנהל הכל,
ברגע שיתן הכנעה כי השי"ת מנהיג הכל אז כבר אפשר להתמודד עם הקשיים. שמעתי מאדם גדול

when you throw in some gye words in middle of a conversation, waiting for any reaction
when going forward gets tough, its merely a sign that you are going uphill, just give more gas

im chabad so thats how i say it
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
