Thanks Yaffa for joining us here and sharing! I loved the lessons you shared. Especially the concept of Emunah and Bitochon with therapy and medication when necessary. Also that NO ONE can make changes for us:

The heavy focus on this friend (and/or other relationships)/ her response/ your response / all the drama and chaos it’s creating in your life may be a distraction for some other things you fear you are incapable of facing or exploring.
