The 2 stages
I heard a great message in which the R' Akiva Tatz said that are are two stages in life. The first stage is easy and very nice, to help you get started. But in the second stage, you have to work at it. For example, when a baby is learning to walk, the parent holds the baby’s hands and the baby is very happy because they can’t fall. But later, the child has to try walk by him/herself. It’s very hard, and they fall and get up a number of times. But this is when the child really learns how to walk. And the parent is standing right there waiting for the child to come into their arms.
