I never heard anyone say that, but I LIKE it!


The first time I heard it was when I was a chosson. The chosson rebbe said it with such a tekifis, you could tell he meant it. "You come home from kollel and dinner isn't ready and you want to know why? Bist meshigeh? Because the Beshefer said so, that's WHY!!! He want's you to grow and be a better person, that's why!!!

Another thing that I found I need,

a real life chevra

Seeing REAL people, who understand and to whom I can be totally honest, is invaluable. It takes away so much of the fight, until now it was lust, and hiding it, whereas now it is lust, with a whole group allies to fight against it. as the saying goes "lust grows in ....." can't remember now.

theres 7 extra
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

Cool! But how could he be mechaven? I thought that vort was a special gift for those who participated in the Yom HaBesurah Farby?

As part of OINK and a good friend of Nitzotz, I feel the need to heed to his wise words.

Gratitude- right now the feeling of gratitude I have is something that I have never felt before. As mentioned above I had a day this week. I know myself, and I know that there has never been a day like that that has passed without a fall. Yet this time, because I have been really trying to do things the way Hashem wants it, Hashem has showed me that he is there for me (and sent the perfect shaliach, TZ). [please excuse the tears, they are tears of gratitude] the feeling can not be out into words, the Hashem that I have been evading so long took my hands, swooped me up, hugged me, and told me that He is always with me. It is joy, it is happiness, and all that coming straight from Him, for once I really feel Oh MY GOD!!!

Good Stuff! I just realized, maybe that's why we have a "Thank You" button and not a "Like" button. "Like" - is "ME" focused, "I" like. "Thank YOU" is gratitude, which is "other" focused. Thank "YOU". I am indebted to "YOU".

Thank YOU for sharing .
