Answer: The Creator specially pulls us, shakes us, and sends us all sorts of disturbances and crises. He does this so that we will want to correct our fate and turn to Him for help. To this end He sends us all the troubles.
If we don’t turn to Him but try to do something within the framework of our life, we feel even worse because when we don’t turn to Him we force Him to send us another portion of suffering so that eventually we will turn to Him.
