I have a lot more "serenity"

Really, I'm much more at peace with myself and others. I am much clamer and more forgiving. I'm not plagued by obsessive thoughts. I am not as makpid on others. I don't feel out of control. I don't feel guilty walking around with a secret.

I'm not saying that I don't struggle from time to time, but it is with less frequency and less intensity.

I learned that fantasy, and acting out is a form of escape. I learned that much of the reason that I needed an escape boiled down to gaivah, wanting to run the show, rather than "letting" Hashem run the show. Jealousy, fear, resentment, and anger all stem from putting myself in the center rather than Hashem. As it says in Dov's signature - "the heck with me, what can I do for you". Internalizing that one attitude alone can transform a person.

I learned that I need to get off the 18 wheeler and get onto a tricycle. I need to accept my imperfect reality, rather than to try and outwardly portray perfection. I need to accept where I am, not where I wish I was.



Well the Talmid who learned so much became a master Rebbe.

You humbled yourself and became a mekabel and in so doing earned the admiration of

so many.
