Do It Anyway

I came across this code that Mother Theresa lived by and it spoke to my heart so I wanted to share it in this post.

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 God.
           .......It was never between you and them, anyway!
