Practicing wise restraint

Wants Needs Limits crop

Recently, I read a great post from Rabbi Jeff Goldwasser, on his blog ‘Reb Jeff’, entitled: ‘The 14th Day of the Omer‘, where he speaks about setting limits for yourself and practicing wise restraint, not only to keep yourself from harm, but to discover what is best and most noble within ourselves. I particularly liked his words: “People who act as if nothing is off limits often enter into self-destructive cycles in which they becomes slaves to their own desires.”
