I’m a 24 yr old guy, just struggling to maintain my connection with Hashem. I had a pretty bad childhood, pretty tough teenage years and life is pretty hard right now as an adult. Being in Yeshiva seeing guys with huge families marrying into girl with huge families leaves me feeling pretty lonely. I don’t want to be that guy who bases his value off others. But in the orthodox community that’s all we do!
I don’t listen to segulos anymore, I’ve tried most of them and when they don’t work it only hurts more, and yes I do understand they don’t always work. But Im not risking my remaining Yiddishkeit for more failed attempts.
I understand I’m still young, but there’s only so much I can take.
I was the one to look at the cup half full…not so much anymore.
When will Hashem’s tests stop? When will I even know how to pass them?
I dedicated my life to being your eved, but I guess some of us are sacrifices.
It certainly feels like I’m one of them.
I hope I, and all the others atone for the rest of klal Yisroel.
This might be the only way to ever understand
