Neshamas Seek Hope

This week Neshamas tried to find hope in situations that often felt hopeless.

In Frum Outside, Void Inside, a young woman struggles with her secret disconnect from the Chabad community.  She worries that, because she feels so different from others, she will never find a husband who understands her.

In Damaged Neshama, a writer worries that their Neshama is being harmed when they allow themselves to give in to their animalistic tendencies.

And, in Suicide Of A Different Kind, a Neshama describes a lifetime of verbal abuse and neglect that was difficult to categorize, but hugely destructive nonetheless.  She urges those considering having children to make sure that they can provide a safe, loving household to avoid having their children grow up with the trauma she experienced.
