Part of the official Jewish Vidui/Confession is ya’atznu aitzot ra’ot—we’ve recommended bad advice.
In an effort to avoid this sin, I base my recommendations either on people much greater than I could imagine being or on my own regrettable experience, hoping to help others avoid suffering the same pain and flops that I’ve suffered & benefiting from chizuk I either wish I’d had or have received and found helpful.
Having said that, maybe I messed up.
Maybe I misunderstood or miscommunicated an important idea, which messed you up.
Or maybe a post contains lashon hara or something wrong or useless or misleading.
Maybe a comment or email to you was tactless or insensitive or unnecessarily defensive.
(I aim for compassion and sensitivity, but because I usually have no idea to whom I'm emailing/commenting, I can totally flub up. Actually, I can totally flub up even if I know exactly to whom I'm speaking, darn it.)
For all the above, I’m truly sorry.
(You can also feel free to contact me for a personal apology or to point out something you know for a fact is halachically or factually wrong.)
May we all enjoy a sweet new year full of sweetened dinim/judgments.
May Hashem forgive us, may we forgive each other, and may we forgive ourselves and may each of us merit to fulfill our unique soul-potential.
