I’ve been through lots of pain the past two years. I am forced to deal with a crazy family situation, I am facing bankruptcy and I live with a chronic illness which is made worse by all the stress.
I asked someone for spiritual advice and he told me that my suffering was an atonement for my sins.
I asked someone else for spiritual advice and he told me to thank Hashem for all the good things in my life. He told me to do this during hitbodedut for at least an hour a day. I couldn’t stand to do it for more than a few minutes, it felt totally fake, like I was lying to Hashem.
Someone else told me that if I thanked Hashem for my problems they would go away because I wouldn’t need them anymore.
I feel like the people giving me advice don’t understand what I’m going through.
