I am so happy that I am an addict! If I wasn't addicted to shmutz, would I really know what being helpless means and realize that I am helpless in every area of life and that everything that I took for granted is really a gift from Hashem?
If I wasn't addicted, would I feel the pain I'm feeling now and realize that I must do Teshuva and change myself so much that I become unrecognizable to my old self? Would I have the inner urge and strength of will to strip my personality down and make an accounting of my strengths and weaknesses and fight to fix what I can in myself?
If I hadn't become addicted, I would probably feel content with my service of G-D and dance all the way to my grave, thinking that I have fulfilled my Tafkid to perfection, lying to myself about my belief in G-D and my trust in him, lying about my integrity as a human being, lying about imperfections.
Being so utterly and blatantly imperfect and being exposed is the biggest blessing I could get from Hashem. It is such a gift to receive this helping hand from Hashem. Throughout this whole experience, He has proven to me, in what I thought to be the darkest times, that He loves me. He was there always, just waiting behind the wall which I myself had erected, waiting for me to come to the other side.

does the "kichsa generator" [ooh! that's something for the iphone app!] replace nashim with nedarim? because it could be majorly foncusing.
Hadarat nashim is a weird israeli term for "the exclusion of women" [apparently it stems from the root of neder, so it basically means swearing off women], about a month ago israel was overturned by hadarat nashim protests and demands that charedi men sit at the back of buses or in front near women. that's all i meant.

I joined Dov's Phone Group [only on sundays because [strike]I'm[/strike] they're in the wrong time zone] and have started working the first step working means, turns out it means writing]. And it's an immense drain on me, emotionally. Putting all those long buried memories out on paper is extremely difficult for me, but I see how it really puts things in perspective. Sure I knew all this stuff all along, but drawing it out of my mind and putting it all together on paper really changes the whole picture.
So I wish myself much hatzlacha working the 12 steps, and...

TEEZEE, STOP TYPING, YOU HAVE TO FINISH WHAT DOV ASKED YOU TO DO

k ok, i'm coming, chill

Gotta go, Guys....

Hatzlocho! I once had to stop writing and call my sponsor 'cause I was being triggered by the memories...he said it was normal...
It's a big step, the first one...
Baby steps.
If the road is pulling you down, it's a sign that you are going uphill, so just press harder on the gas!

Have a great day - unless, of course, you made other plans.

Working the first step brought me to the realization that

Gevald! It ain't getting any better!

Look where I started, and look where I'm up to now.
This is a process TZ, a process, and it happens, it's running.
So I was just out on the street and saw a girl, and found my gaze lingering on her, and I remembered.

If you look at her now by mistake, tomorrow you'll look on purpose.
If you look tomorrow on purpose than Ibbermorgen [=the day after tomorrow] you'll search for it on the computer.
If you search for it on the computer, ultimately you'll masturbate, or search compulsively and waste time.
If you do any of the above, you'll miss seder.
If you miss seder, You'll feel like a jerk and won't be able to daven.
If you'll feel like a jerk you'll have trouble getting up the next morning.
If you laze around in bed like a jerk you might masturbate yet again and feel like a bigger jerk [see Orach Chayim siman aleph] [also see Matisyahu, Light, On Nature- "Will you rise like a lion in the morning sun? Or will ya', just lay there bleedin'?"]
Feeling like a jerk isn't very conducive to learning once you do make it to seder.
Going a day without learning for a yeshiva bachur creates depression.
Depression is bad.
Life is bad.
So?

Keep Rocking Guys!
[hey KRG- that's a new one...]

HAPPY ROSH CHODESH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EBD SAID IT LIKE THIS:
ben durdayah wrote on 07 Feb 2011 21:19:

A moiradige vort that I heard this afternoon (b'sheim HaRav Geldzahler I don't know if it's Shlit"a or Zatza"l):

The Gemara says "K'sheim shemishenichnas Av Mema'atin be'simcha, kach mishenichnas Adar Marbin Besimcha" (or something like that)

What would you do if you walked into a shteeble on the 3rd of Av and saw a group of chassidim sitting around a table eating meat, drinking wine, and listening to music?

Of course, you'd run over to them taken aback and say "Chevrah! Es past duch nisht! (This is inappropriate behavior) for the month of Av", and you'd show them the Shulchan Aruch where these laws are discussed.

If so, what are you supposed to do when you enter a shteeble/beis medrash/Jewish home on the 3rd of Adar and you see them walking around with the blues, shoulders down, nose drooping down to the floor etc. etc.

Obviously, you should be doing the same thing!


Of course, you'd run over to them taken aback and say "Chevrah! Es past duch nisht! (This is inappropriate behavior) for the month of Adar", and you'd show them the Shulchan Aruch where these laws are discussed, and maybe have a round or two of Mishe Mishe Mishe Nich Nas Adar...

Revving up our engines,

Love all of you,

E. ben Durdayah




This morning during Hallel a thought struck me-
The Shla"h writes that there is a difference between the meanings of the words tuv and tov. Tuv means unconditional good, while tov means noticeable good, that the good is noticed. Good is only noticed when it follows bad, therefore it is preferable to receive tuv rather than tov, because when receiving tov, bad precedes it.
The Kedushat Zion [Bobover Rebbe who was murdered by the Nazis [i]ym"sh[/i]] writes that according to this Shla"h, the correct nusach of Birkat HaGomel is to say: "Mi shegemolcha kol tov" (Because the man was saved from danger) "Hu yigmolcha kol tuv selah (although the Kedushat Zion probably said "tiv" not "tuv"— during my latest seforim shopping spree I noticed that a new sefer has just been released, titled Havooras HaChaseedim it's about 5-600 pages long, just on this topic- whaddevah).
Based on this, I thought, "Hodu laHasem ki tov" so the question is, if he saved me from something which makes it tov as opposed to tuv- "Hodu"?! Lo miduvshach velo miuktzach!!! like Matisyahu said "the only who can get us out of this mess- the one who put us here"- did I ever ask him to get me into this mess?! Why in the world does he deserve my praise?
So the answer is "Ki leolam chasdo" Dude! Mei'ito lo teitzei ha'raot! g-d is good, he's awesome, even when it seems to us that it's tov not tuv-
LEOLAM CHASDO
ROCK ON!
