Life Is How You Live With Yourself

I wouldn’t call myself a very religious person. But, I do believe that one must act and be willing to face oneself. Regardless of what happens, how people treat, or even it seems to be in vain. You must be true to yourself and do what you believe is right. Not for other’s sake, but for your own sake.

Below is something that my cousin, Samantha Trinh f0und and forwarded to me. I think it is a great thing to reflect on.

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 may 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.
Transparency may make you vulnerable.
Be transparent anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, others may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
People who really want help may attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give the world your best anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It is never between you and them anyway.

    This is one of my favorite quotes/messages. I first saw it on the bathroom wall in my aunt’s house, and it has been with me ever since.
