Ungrateful Guests

Dear Rabbi and Susan, It’s summer. Since we live in a lovely part of the country, this means that friends and relatives love to visit. We love to have them!

Fear itself isn’t a problem—it’s an opportunity to either become empowered and take action or, God forbid, to take the opposite path and become anxious and fall into dejection....
