Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered.
Forgive them anyway
If you are kind, people may accuse you of being selfish, with ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway


If you are successful, you may win false friends and trust enemies.
Succeed anyway
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
Be honest and frank, anyway
If you spend years building, they may destroy it overnight.
Build anyway
If you find serenity and happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway
If you do them good today, they may forget tomorrow.
Do good anyway
You see in the final analysis itโ€™s between you and Divinity.
It never was between you and themโ€ฆanyway.

~Mother Theresa

  1. This is wonderful…I found myself having goosebumps while reading the last line.
    One should never forget being happy, kind, grateful, hopeful and helping! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you for sharing and I believe it is the effort that counts no matter how small, just wanting to make a difference, that’s all that matters!

    1. You’re welcome. I get it that it’s not easy…believe me…but I’m a firm believer how you respond in certain moments will get you through the tough times. Have a great weekend!
