Sometimes you might connect with someone who has a severe moral challenge in life. And you can’t see how this person can possibly overcome this challenge.

But then, you have your own challenges. And you also can’t see how you can possibly overcome these challenges.

Because each person has their own battle to fight, unique from any other.

So what should you do?

You fight those battles that you can win—including those the other guy can’t handle. The other guy will fight those battles that he can win—including those that you can’t handle. Eventually, both of you will find that those impossible battles have somehow become possible.

We are, after all, a single being, all of humanity.

Maamar Amar Rabbi Oshaya, 19 Kislev 5739.
