Approach to recovery Procrastinating when urges come up, and forcing myself to guard my eyes better.
Story Before finding faith, I lived for short-term gratification. Forget questions of morality -- I was pragmatic. Utilitarian. The kind of person you'd learn about in an economics lesson, that was me. Thank G-d, things flipped for me when I did some soul searching on some inspiring trips to Israel and Poland that connected me to my roots. I became instilled with purpose and determined to change. But being a BT is not easy. Many forces in your life that were your biggest cheerleaders became very vocal forms of opposition to your new lifestyle. And in a lot of ways, their concerns are valid and must be heeded. In those times, I wish I had a mentor, someone who had been through a similar journey, and who could have provided me a perspective sensitive to both observance and maintaining relationships with secular friends and family. Fortunately, though I didn't really have a consistent mentor, I found mentorship in some incredible Jewish leaders, friends, and rabbis. Maybe I can pay this forward to someone else.
