Plain and Simple

A person who worked on self-improvement came to the Baal Shem Tov and complained, “I have tried for quite some time to become a better person. But I am still very plain and simple.”

“To be aware that you are plain and simple is an accomplishment in itself,” replied the Baal Shem Tov. “Take pleasure in that.” ~ Midrash Rivash Tov as quoted by R’ Zelig Pliskin
