1) There are such special, sincere people out there.
Regular people who've suffered or are in difficult situations...or who are doing all right, but looking to go deeper. And if you saw any of them in real life, you'd think they were standard ordinary people...but really, they are so special.
And so sincere. They want to do the right thing. And they want a positive healthy connection with like-minded Yidden.
2) So many people have suffered in some way, and what we see online in a blog post or a comment (or at the store or on the sidewalk) isn't the whole picture of the person – not at all.
They may be in a very difficult situation or have undergone a difficult situation, and we have no idea how much they've already worked on themselves to get to where they are now.
Many times, an off-comment or off-attitude is just the chaff coming off a person who has done so much work on him- or herself, like maybe a person who started off at minus-8 and has scaled to level 5 by the skin of their teeth, but this person is being judged for not being on level 9.
How much more are we supposed to be doing?
So many people are exhausted emotionally – yet they keep struggling to push forward.
AND GOOD FOR THEM!!!
There is so, so much against us. And so many of us have been really trying and have made enormous steps – even sacrifices – to get to where we are now.
But where we are now often feels like it's not nearly enough. (Either that's how we feel or that's what we've been told.)
We want truth. We want clarity. And we want comfort & menucha – emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
May Mashiach gather us together to Eretz Yisrael speedily & sweetly.
