Priorities

Priorities

I found this beautiful inspirational poem by Mother Theresa that I want to share with you. The essence of it is about loving others. And accepting their priorities regardless of their faults.

It doesn’t matter how much they hurt you, try to forgive them. Forgiveness will help you grow. But the most important thing is that you please God.

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 if 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.
