If I have offended anyone in any way, I am sorry. I strive to do what G-d wants me to do, but I am human and make mistakes.
"For this mitzvah (Divine commandment) that I command you today, it is not hidden from you and it is not distant...Rather, the matter is very near to you, in your mouth and in your heart, to perform it." (Devarim/Deuteronomy 30:11-14) Ramban (1) explains that, "this mitzvah" is referring to the mitzvah of Teshuva, regretting one's misdeeds and resolving to return to G- d's path. On the Shabbos before Rosh Hashana, our Day of Judgment, we remind ourselves that it is never too late to repent. "The matter is near to you.to perform it": everyone is capable.
"When we set aside the time to think about our actions, we may find that we are being selfish, impatient, critical, short-tempered, or performing mitzvos by rote without the appropriate sincerity. Once we realize what the problems are, we can plan and consult to chart the path to improvement and change.
We can and must change. When we strive and expend the effort, we will emerge different people. Through the transformation we create and in the merit of our efforts, may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life. "
