I suffer from severe depression to the point I can't get out of bed somedays.
Helping someone whether I like them or not gives me a reason to get up, and it helps me feel like a person.
The most important thing is that perhaps God wants me there to help because it might make both of feel better, physically and emotionally.
And who knows? I might miss that person even though we didn't get along. They are in my life for some purpose, healing, teaching, growth, or perhaps a test.

I wish i knew about abstence when I was a teenager.
My parents had no foundation to raise me on. I am disappointed in myself as a teenager not to say no. I never realized that finances are everything about marrage. I wish I knew you when I was15 when I lived in Denver. I wish I was raised in a Jewish family when I was young.
I am now going through conversion and Jewdism classes and for the first time I am at peace with myself and with God.

Anonymous 3- a person may have a toxic attitude based on something that your volunteering can change. So we can not always judge a book by it cover.
Anonymous 1 - sometimes what we feel "obligated" to do the Almighty El uses to change our hearts. That is the reward of the mitzvot that allows us to become a better person.

I'm experiencing a test.
I am "dieing to know what the other letters in "GKAF" stand for, and
don''t think I can wait three weeks (one, each of the next three), to find out.
PLEASE, could I have a hint.
BTW, Great content.

loved this one
thanks - i think the point you made about "its always going to be painful" is such an eye-opener, so obvious yet I never thought about it that way. Really makes choosing the right thing easier.

There is some gray area here, which was not mentioned. If the guy/girl in question is such a negative and toxic personality, then it is NOT healthy for me as the individual to spend time around him/her. In that case, the test would be very easy for me to pass. My own mental health and that of my family is much more important than that of someone who "everybody else is helping out." After all, what's right for others is not always right for me.

This was personally helpful at the right time
Thanks, again. This message literally boosted me over me internal panic over a financial commitment that I had to make for my son's education. Part of me always feels bad about having a hard time doing things that others seem to get through more easily. Viewing this is my test, where others have different tests, was exactly what I needed to get through the block and get it done!
