People are often unreasonable and self-centered

“ *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 your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.” ……

-Sister Teresa

That is such a true statement. I agree completely with that.

Some people can not believe that you can be kind without wanting something. I think that says so much more about the person making the accusation.

Personally, I'll continue to be kind and sod what anyone else thinks.

Martin,

Thanks for commenting. Your thoughts are much appreciated and it is good to know there are people out there that feel the same way.

I will continue to make an effort to be kind too. It is not always easy.

All the best,

Mike
