Rebbe Nachman ztk’l writes in ‘Mayim’ that no matter what compels a person to act in a certain way, we each have the free will to overcome the challenges and respond differently.
With that, we should change the way we view the world around us. Many times when we meet dissatisfaction, we blame others and are unwilling to own up to our part; we see ourselves a ‘victim of circumstance’. However, Rebbe Nachman firmly taught it all comes down to a person’s ratzon, as one desires to change so can she.
We may choose to see life differently now and greet whatever comes our way as a springboard to reach higher heights. When one desires to become the best athlete, they go to the coach that can get ‘the best out of him’.
Hashem is our coach and training us to be the best that we can be. It is our choice to see life in this light and respond through this viewpoint.
