«I personally have had very good results with a rubber band. When I feel that I may lose my temper, I put on a rubber band, which I usually carry in my pocket, and I find that it soothes my urge to become angry. I was once honored to be a witness at a chasunah. Usually they choose two people with similar backgrounds to be eidim together. Either two Rabbonim or two business men. My fellow eid this time was a youngster who had met my daughter for a shidduch.Parshas Vayeitzei, Yeshiva of Far Rockaway
We stood together for a few silent moments and he said "it must be a terrible embarrassment for you to be an eid together with me!" "It is," I answered. "How can you bear it?" he asked. "I'm wearing my rubber band", I said showing him my hand, "and nothing bothers me."
He looked at my hand in wonder and then asked "is that a magic rubber band?" It is not magic. For me it works, and many others have also found that it works. It works by reminding me of what I truly wish to remind myself.»
Shalom and Best Regards,
