This thread is for all those other people out there that also struggle to get through each day and become a better person while they’re at it. I think it would be really helpful if we can all share with each other that which has given us strength and hope.
I heard an amazing story about a Gadol who went through a terribly difficult tzorah. He was sitting in obvious emotional pain, with his student, and he cried out: “Oy!! Life is so hard!!” And then he paused and continued: “But if it wouldn’t be hard, it wouldn’t be anything.”
Please share your chizuk – it will bring us all closer together and ultimately closer to Moshiach.May 19, 2011 4:16 am at 4:16 am #768953kapustaParticipant

i try to keep remembering the difference between a tzaddik and a rasha.
they both sometimes fall; but the tzaddik keeps picking himself up.May 19, 2011 7:20 am at 7:20 am #768956smile66Member
This doesn’t have to be morbid unless you take it to be –
The only thing everyone’s screaming in gehinom is “PLEASE JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE!! JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE SECOND IN THE WORLD!!!!!!”
It’s more mussar than chizuk, but if you can manage to think about it now and again it really knocks you back into the right perspective.May 19, 2011 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #768957tomim tihyeMember

i heard a great line today- it does not matter how many times you fall but how many times you picked yourself upMay 20, 2011 4:07 am at 4:07 am #768960Still lookingParticipant
Wow, thanks everyone. Thought I would share a message from my grandmother A”H (a concentration camp survivor):

Simcha b’mitzvos is the key to holding on to your enthusiasm and drive. After you do a mitzvah, no matter how easy it is or if you would do it already anyway or if you feel like you could have done a much better job – be HAPPY over what you did! Why shouldn’t you? It seems so simple but it’s really hard because the yetzer hara doesn’t want us to feel happy when we do mitzvos. Wonder why…May 20, 2011 10:06 pm at 10:06 pm #768963person3Member
