I am actually LDS, but this advice transcends religious affiliation. This rings very true principles. It is healing advice. I appreciate being reminded of this simple truth that can set me free.

Love this Rabbi.

I am one of those. Jewish to the core but a firm atheist. My friends frequently ask me why I study torah, subscribe to this cite,give to Jewish Charities and try to live life in accordance with Jewish philosophy. This segment is a wonderful example of why my Jewishness is so important to me. I am not the master of the universe. I can not let my anger to take over when things don't go my way. Jewish teachings, yes, even without God, give me the guidance I need to lead a meaningful life. Fellow readers please don't lecture me.

You say you talk to G-d all the time, please try asking Him for help and guidance. He loves you unfathomably and He knows what you are going through, and often our troubles are there so that we will call out to Him and ask Him for help. Also, you should know that He never gives us challenges we cannot handle, He knows our limits and our capabilities. We are all suffering with you, and we're all in this together.
