How she saved my life.....
I used to spend my days and nights doing nothing. I was harming myself Spiritually and Physically. Whether it was drugs, video games, or just causing serious trouble for other people (which I won't detail here). What a waste.
I may have never gotten out of that miserable existence had it not been for my then girlfriend who broke things off with me after I what I think must have been 3 years of dating. How could she have possibly stayed with me? She was an excellent student with ambitions. She was going somewhere and I clearly wasn't.
That incident motivated me to change. I was a 17 year old dropout doing drugs and sleeping all day, sometimes working as a mover. After the breakup I spent a couple miserable weeks drinking before my friends and I could no longer afford to live in the apartment we were living in and packed up are shit and went our separate ways.
One of the guys I was living with in the apartment decided to go to Israel. To the Diaspora Yeshiva. Having nothing to stick around for, I decided to go too. Israel was probably the most incredible experience of my life. I didn't really have such a connection with G-d when I was there, more with the land and people. After I was there for a couple of months, my ex-girlfriend came to Israel on a program. We met up in Israel and needless to say, we couldn't stay apart. She ended up staying in Israel and attended Bar-Ilan. For the rest of our stay in Israel we were inseparable.
When we came back to the states, I went to School and got a job (my current job). I have now been married to that same girl for over 3 years now and it has been unbelievable. Had it not been for my wife breaking up with me at that time (something I could not understand then), who knows where I'd be now. I certainly wouldn't have made it to Israel...that I know for sure.
We must always work to better ourselves. To try and get the most out of life.
Wow. That's really a special story, maybe I should e-mail it to Oprah...... Really though, I'm happy for ya.
