age old advice from Mother Teresa

“People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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 false friends and true enemies:
 Succeed anyway. 
If you are honest and frank people will try to cheat you: 
Be honest anyway. 


What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight:
 Build anyway. 


If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous of you:
 Be happy anyway. 


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


Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: 
Give your best anyway.

 You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
 It was never between you and them anyway.”
