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
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
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 own
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,
