We all get to those points in life where we are just so disgusted with ourselves. It feels like whatever we do is wrong, we’ll never be as good as so-and-so, life has passed us by, and I’m sure you can fill in a few examples of your own.
When we feel like this, down down down in the dumps, it’s important to find at least one thing that’s right inside. I know this is hard, just as you can’t tell a depressed person, snap out of it. But that’s what we do here in Kabbalah, we fight this internal battle against our own internal negative voice, what we call the Opponent. By giving ourselves positive messages, we can quiet that voice.
A great kabbalist wrote: when a father complains that his son has taken to evil ways, what should he do? Love him more than ever.
Today, love yourself more than ever.
