A Modest and Healthy Self-Image
A modest person with a healthy self-image will be a happier person. He doesn't have demanding expectations of life. Therefore he has greater satisfaction and appreciation for what he does have and less distress from disappointments.A person with a modest and healthy self-image will get along more harmoniously with others. He will be much more at ease and he will bring out the best in others. He will be respected and liked. He won't arouse needless envy and antagonism. He will speak and act pleasantly. In general, he will be more balance.
Regardless of how we've been treated by others – or how we've treated them; regardless of what we hold of others' views – or what they hold of ours; irrespective of the many other modes of repentance we must each engage in now, let us each take a few minutes to bless everyone we know in advance of the new year.
There is a transformative effect the simple act of blessing one another has on our interpersonal relations, and on the entire universe. Our heartfelt blessings to each other have the power to elicit from G-d His deepest blessings to each of us individually, to all of us as one, and to the entirety of our universe. As Maimonides writes, one good deed has the potential to tip the balance of the entire world in the favor of merit and goodness!
