Do it Anyway

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 true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people may cheat you;
Be honest and sincere 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 forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough;
Give your best anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

OMG!! Toots, it is soooo TRUE!!

Forgiving and redha and tawakkal help us to relieve the burden and all sorts of -ve vibes..

and yeah, again.. we must always remind each other as we are only human...

May Allah always bless and watch over us..amin...
