One of the most inspiring videos I've ever seen about focusing outward. "You're on a different path somehow in life... I can't explain it." - Homeless man.
Do we see only ourselves?
Our challenges and hardships are what turn us into who we are meant to be.
No matter what has happened, there's always another chance.
When we take only what we need from the world today and trust in Hashem to care for us tomorrow, He may likely surprise us and show us His love in unexpected ways!
We may all be somewhat broken, but it's after Yom Kippur now and Hashem has fixed us up. So what is more beautiful, a whole vessel or a vessel that has been broken and fixed? It all depends on your perspective.
Y'all thought you had it hard? We all have what to learn from this precious neshama (may she rest in peace).
Yes, the struggle is hard. But nothing stands in the way of determination. - A powerful video!

An "attitude of gratitude" is one of the hallmarks of recovery in the 12-Step program.
Rabbi Benzion Shafier speaks about how to balance the destructive guilt with real Teshuvah (based on a talk he recorded specially for the GYE community).
A powerful story related to the Holocaust. When we hold on to resentments, we are just giving the other person rent-free space in our own head. Let go and forgive to find true freedom to move on.
Let's trust that He truly knows best.
Do you feel limited as a result of the addiction? With determination and hard work, nothing can limit us!
Rabbi Twerski speaks at a talk in Jerusalem (sponsored by "Yiboneh") in October 2016 about his new book "Teshuvah Through Recovery".
Put the glass down.
If we do whatever we can, Hashem will do the rest, even when it seems impossible.
What's the last big test we face as a nation before moshiach can come?
Sometimes only one addict can understand another addict. Those who know need, can perhaps understand best others in need.
After years of "using" shmutz as a drug and a means of escape, believing that we can actually live WITHOUT it takes a real leap of FAITH. When we hear "Let go and let G-d", it feels like taking a step off the cliff into the abyss. But if we are brave enough to take the leap, we fall into G-d's embrace.
A GYE member wrote: I saw this video and it brought me to tears, 'cuz I know it's true. We did not have children for ten years, and then thru "Daven For Me", my wife davened for two women, and they davened for her. Within less than a year, they each had a child (one had a boy, the other a girl) and we had twins - a boy and a girl! Incidentally, I think it's an appropriate call for action for the GYE crowd, davening for someone else's recovery. Getting outside of oneself. Most certainly a powerful tool in our struggle!
Those who have self-control do much better in all areas of life. Watch this fascinating study.
Why do we whisper during Shmoneh Esrei?
An emotional account by someone who was non-religious and experienced death, the after-life and his heavenly judgment, and how he was sent back down to earth and became a Ba'al Teshuvah. The video is in Hebrew with English subtitles. Special effects and sound were added, but the interview is all real. It is about an hour long, but for the purpose of Chizuk in Shmiras Habris, the most important parts to watch are from the beginning until 17.40 minutes into the story. If you have even less time, please watch at least from 12.00 minutes until 17.40 minutes. If you can't access it or don't have the ability to view it, go to http://www.guardureyes.com/GUE/Tips/SealofTruth.asp for a transcript of the most important parts (12-17.40 minutes).
Hashem is our father. He might seem tough on us at times, but never leave home! He will pull us through in the end, by hook or by crook!
