Forgive them anyway…

Forgive them 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


~Mother Teresa


When someone hurts you in any way, you are focused on that person and what they did.

You spend your time thinking and re thinking about the hurt and what happened.

Maybe even taking time to think about what they said and what they really meant and what it felt like to them.

Even if it was just them being self-centered and unreasonable.

But the more you stay in that hurtful feeling and re living the hurt, the longer you promote the situation as a “hurtful” experience.

If you can possibly “forgive” them and move on, you will be free from whatever they did.

You probably won’t want to totally forget what happened,

but forgiveness=freedom for you.

If you are a kind  person, people may misunderstand you and think that you are just faking it for some reason.

Don’t worry about what others think because they are coming from their own perspective, not yours.

It’s up to you to decide how kind you want to be and if you want to keep practicing kindness for your self realization and growth.

If you are honest, people may take advantage of you and cheat you.

Again, that is their bad if they rip you off in some way.

It may not feel good to you, but if you can just learn from the experience and realize that not everyone has your best interest at heart, you can become more aware and not let the same thing happen again.

Don’t worry, and you don’t have to get even either.  That is what KARMA is about.  Sooner or later they will be presented with the same thing they did to you.

Just be honest, anyway.

You will feel so much better and your path will attract more people like you in the future.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous of you.

Just be an example and let them have something to aspire to.  You never know how much you will effect them just by showing that happiness is possible in a broken world.

Do your best to live your life being thankful and grateful every day.

It is between you, yourself, and God, so don’t worry about what others think.

They have their own life to live…

    would just like to say many thanks for a remarkable post
    and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I

    but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
    think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
