Your best "friends” are those nasty bad habits and weaknesses that you may have even inherited for generations and seem impossible to overcome.
“It’s terrible! I have no control!”
Without that wicked a nasty side of you, you are useless Malach [angel] who isn’t worthy of the Torah...the best part of you and your glory and shine is your Yetzer Hara!
There Is No Way Out of It! We Are All Going to Make Mistakes All the Time for The Rest of Our Lives!
This is Normal!
...channeling our Admoni [Edomite, Esav] side into doing good, or by doing Teshuva on our sins; this is exactly what we were created for:
To move on despite our difficulties!
Every evil is potential good and therefore deserves to be glowing and shining!
This is our claim to fame, when we don’t give up and we try to convert our evil into good.
Never, never, give up! R’ Avrohom Yoffen Zatzal said that Bitachon is a reality, you must come out ahead if you keep persisting and you are real.
Please note: I've no connection with Bitachon Weekly; just find their material uniquely amazing & wish to spread this wonderful dose of sanity in a progressively insane world.
