In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

Don't hurt yourself because of others

Our actions and behavior can have a very big impact on other people. That's why we need to be careful. Unfortunately, a lot of people in our little world have not internallized this and don't realize what they are doing to others. This could make people throw everything away because they just don't want to deal with it anymore. When this happens though, we should ask ourself about what our observance is based on. Is it based on how others act and behave? Or on wanting to serve G-d and follow our obligation to keep the mitzvos? I agree that people can be really annoying, but we shouldn't deprive our soul because of it. I believe that this is our test. And our challenge is to stay spiritually strong despite how others behave.

Have a good week everyone
