The pasuk tells us that a tzaddik falls seven times, then gets up. It doesn’t say “if” he falls, he’ll get up, but that he will certainly fall – and then get up.
Find me someone who achieved something worthwhile – in the Torah, in Chazal, in life – who didn’t fall first, time after time. But he always got up one more time than he fell.
You want to live free of anxiety? Be responsible. Clean up the dead weight of the past, accept the falls, now move on.
Focus on the good – in ourselves, in our spouses, in our children – and move forward. ~ Dr. David Lieberman
