Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem

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've got anyway.

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

    amen. I love the words of wisdom she shared with the world. What she speaks of is agape love. This is God's kind of love. The love that holds no conditions. I was just reading about this in a book I tend to pull out from time to time to encourage me in the Lord.

    emoticon Our happiness or state of mind is not determined by others, nor the outside world. It is determined by our inner state projected outwards. It isn't "them" or "it" that we should be concerned about.
