Mussar From Reb Will

And oftentimes excusing of a fault doth make the fault the worse by the excuse.

William Shakespeare

Isn't Yom Kippur great. No excuses! Hashem - we were wrong! That's it.

Wouldn't it be great if people were the same way to each other?! Instead of trying to justify inappropriate behavior, people would just admit error and resolve to be better the next time.

In order to do this it is critical to accept one truism. We are ALL riddled with flaws - and that is OK. We are only human and should not expect ourselves to be perfect.

Hashem doesn't. That is why he gave us the mitzva of teshuva.

May we all walk in the ways of Hashem and forgive those around us for their inadequacies.
