“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.”  – Mother Teresa

I just wanted to share this with you. Some of the best advice you can find. Truly amazing. I have nothing to add or comment. Maybe we should act like this on a day to day basis, not just during the holidays when we feel it’s the time to be jolly and kind and all that.

  1. I love this. I notice that people often accuse very nice people of being deceitful and accuse shy and genuine people of being fake. I think that this is because the person realises that they don’t have those qualities and it makes them feel bad about themselves and they project that bad feeling onto the other person.
