It was never between you and them…..anyway

I am reminded of this poem by Mother Teresa.  It bears reading, and repeating and should serve as a mantra when you’re stuck in life.  Stuck with questions of ‘should I’?  Stuck with pondering ‘why did I?’ or simply stuck with what action to take next.

Something for your weekend.

The Final Analysis ~ 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 some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

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

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

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between  you and your God;
It was never between you and them Anyway.
