"Do it Anyway"

Rewritten by St. Teresa of Calcutta, based on The Paradoxical Commandments by Dr. Keith Kent 

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 happy anyway. 
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 final analysis, it is between you and God. 
It was never between you and them anyway.
