People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
~ Mother Teresa
A test will come your way today via a friend or romantic partner. You will be tempted to get reactive with them. Don’t let the ego win. Take a deep breath and centre yourself in your soul instead – your infinitely kind, good, wise and eternal soul… Then do the right thing and be kind to them even if they were not kind to you. It truly is between you and your Higher Self.
There is a way of turning the other cheek that has nothing to do with masochism and everything to do with just being the Light to the other person. If you pause, breathe and ask your soul to guide you, you will find out how to do this in each individual situation that crops up, because we are never tested beyond our means – not even in our closest relationships.
So Much Love!
