Do it anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered -
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish or ulterior motives -
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies -
Suceed anyway.

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

What you spend years building, someone may 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 not 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.

--Mother Teresa

That is so good. I just read it on a forum. Guess I needed it twice. :)
