Be Kind Anyway

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. 
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. 
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” 
Long time ago, when I was on my Junior High School, before I knew this is Mother Teresa’s quote, my father type it on a sheet of paper and stick the paper with double tape to my cupboard at home. I can read it every time I open the cupboard, or when I just pass by. I love the quote, I love a bunch of  motivation that hidden behind it, but I never thought that it will be something which so hard to do.

This post has been long stayed in my draft, almost half year, never finished until today. At that moment I mad with a certain person, but gladly I remembered this quote and I coped that bad feeling. I decide to post this as a reminder for myself later if something like that happen again. Forgive, be kind, be honest, be happy, do good, give your best, because it’s between you and God anyway.
