I have always admired Mother Teresa and her wisdom transcends time.
When I feel surrounded by people who seem uncaring, selfish and downright mean, I try and remember these words of wisdom.
Try your hardest to not let those people's negative energies pull you down into their dark pit.
Do your best to see the bright lights of true friends among them. It may take some looking, but they're there, like a small light in the dark. Surround yourself with these good people and like the shadows that run when the light is turned on, the others will fade away.
Enjoy Mother Teresa's words of wisdom:
The Final Analysis
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight;
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 all between you and God.
It was never between you and them……………….anyway.
~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta
