(attributed to Mother Teresa)

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Blessings,

  1. I love this, and it is so true in that if you're heart and intentions are pure, you should have no worries. Not that it doesn't hurt to have the occasional arrow slung your way.

  2. I had these words pinned up on my wall for the longest time and probably should just leave them there to remind myself. I hate being misunderstood, but it happens regularly. had to get over what people think! (aaahhh!! Mrs. G just commented on my blog!!) I love your writing! 🙂
