“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.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
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.”
– Mother Theresa
No doubt it’s tough. But give it a shot. Through the various trials in life, we learn. Then we fall again, and pick ourselves up. It goes on in a cycle. No one is asking for perfection. Just be who you really are inside, and you’ll find peace within yourself. There’s always a basic characteristic within ourselves that we have to find. It may have been hidden under layers of hate, anger, fun, opinions, expectations, etc. But it doesn’t matter. Search deep within and you’ll find it for yourself. Your true nature.
