Written and published by Dr. Kent M. Keith in 1968 which can be found in few different versions including those rephrased by the influential Mother Teresa.
I find it very inspiring. Doesn’t matter what people may think of you or what you do, as long as you’re doing it with sincerity, you don’t have to think about anything else. God will help you through :)
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
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’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God
It was never between you and them anyway.
