spiritual-help-perspectiveDo you agonize over other people and situations that turn out badly? Perhaps you feel angry – or maybe you unfairly take the blame yourself. I know it’s happened to me.

Recently I came across this quote by Mother Teresa which changed my perspective. Perhaps it can help you too.

“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.”

How does this change your perspective?
