Don’t Give Up!

After so many years of struggling with negative feelings and seeing no relief, your emotions begin spiraling and you feel that you’re losing it – stop right there.

The despair that you’re experiencing, is only because you can’t make sense of all the bitterness and depression that you’ve suffered until now – it just seems so pointless.

But it’s not! Your struggle in life is not in vain. All human pain and suffering has very deep and hidden Divine purpose and meaning – but you have to have the patience to “wait and see”, without falling apart.

Stop focusing on giving up, and start working on patience by repeating this phrase when you feel the despair creeping up on you, “This too shall pass!”

Living for Today

If you wish to truly enjoy life, you must begin to live your life from day to day, from sunrise to sunset.

Think of what you have to accomplish as it pertains to this day – from the moment you open your eyes in the morning until the second you shut them at night to sleep – more than this you do not have.

For Only One Day

Fill your mind with the thought that you have “only today,” for through this, your entire thought pattern will change, and you will begin to live a truly sweet and engaging life.

All the bitterness, problems, and worry that a person endures, stems from allowing oneself to be confused by yesterday or tomorrow, and this destroys the person completely.

It vexes a person to the point that one is no longer capable of releasing oneself from the tension and difficulty now experienced.

Live with the wondrous revelation that you have “only today.”

Because for one day, a person can accept very much, almost anything at all.

Forget About it!

Have you ever heard the expression, “Smile, though your heart is broken”? Seems odd? Doesn’t it seem more logical that if you‟re hurting, you should be sad and upset?

Our Sages tell us otherwise, “Whoever, is drawn to problems – problems are drawn to him” (Berachos, 63a).

Simply put, thinking about problems magnifies them; giving no thought to them, shrinks them.

So, you got a problem? Why not do the opposite; don’t think about it; forget about it, and be grateful!

Take A Stand

Whatever you may be faced with, make a firm stand. Let nothing break you. Accustom yourself to be patient, and do not engage in any fights with those who cause you sorrow.

Rather, run to G-d — speak with Him and pray to Him. This will fill you with faith, and faith will bring you to great patience regarding each facet of your life.

Overcoming Negative Thinking

During stressful moments in life, remember to stop and ask yourself, “Where am I?”

This will help you keep a perspective on things and prevent you from sliding further down the trail of negative thinking.

You will be more easily able come to your senses, as you realize that the spiraling effect of negative thinking will only lead to morbid thoughts and dysfunction.

Furthermore, by staying focused on the higher purpose of life, you will be able to transcend the bitterness and suffering of the moment and stay with joy.

Life is too precious to waste or shorten by being depressed and sad.

Each Day Is Different

Make certain to fill your mind with the fact that you have “only today.” For then you will perceive how each day will pass in an entirely different fashion.

If a person is constantly concentrating on tomorrow, he will in the interim waste and misuse the time that he has. His thoughts will center on the belief that “there is always time until tomorrow.”

He wastes all of today, and it disappears without anything done.
