"I am the dumbest guy in my shiur" - A letter to an anonymous friend

Dear Shloime,

Please stop telling the girl you are going out with how much of an idiot you are, how inadequate you are, how unintelligent you are and in general what a loser you are. If you keep it up she will start believing you!

It is a common phenomenom amongst people who have self-esteem problems. But is is very damaging. A girl wants to marry a boy whom she admires and can look up to. By constantly drilling into her head all of you real and imagined deficiencies you are jepordizing your chances of marrying her.

Maybe she loves you [as the old song goes] just the way you are.

I do.

Keep in touch!!

Your trusted servant,

Elchanan ben Henna Miriam
