Such wise sentiments. Excepting that we all have different ways of seeing things, different ideas.

Always try to talk your problems through. Reply

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in…

Your philosophy sounds really good. Its true we are all imperfect. However when i hear so many today saying we need to accept, the flaws. I'm one for encouraging
change & growth not just with myself, but with those around me. And there is behaviors flaws imperfections that are just not acceptable. We have far too many
now who call blatant sin , flaws & imperfections. Defiance is called flaws & imperfection. I only wish to exercise caution & balance. And we as human beings, always seem to go towards the extreme. Let us encourage in ourselves & one another to continually progress spiritually, & be lights where there is so much dark. Reply

The Breaking of the glass I find today my life is much like the glass it seems to be breaking in many, many shards and yet…how peaceful and whole it is…I know I’m in a place of peace and joy that no weapon that has been formed against me can prosper…G-d is the complete source of my being… its Purim and G-d has heard He will answer…and there will be peace in peace that shall abound in every area of our lives…we are Not alone…the angels are near heaven is whispering mozaltov …ah yes there is beauty…and we shall see what Father has in store for those who trust Him…I know its wonderfully beautiful…and ever enduring…so stay close and listen to the winds sweet voice… Reply

Re: Prayers Please Dear Anonymous, Plymouth, Uk

I am very sorry to hear that and my prayers are with you. I can tell you that from observing on my end, that there seems to be many people couples that are having some intense marriage difficulties, including me and my husband. Since you are a Noahide (which is wonderful to hear) I do hope you have a Rabbi that you are in contact with to help guide you. If not, I know there are good resources online that contain helpful insights and teachings about marriage difficulties, like right here on Chabad.
I have just started reading and listening to the lectures on this area myself, and I am finding that the information here really does make one think.

May each of us come out to be more humble and wiser through these marriage challenges we face.
G-d Bless Reply
