Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem: Self Therapy

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 it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you've got anyway

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;

It was never between you and them anyway
