People are…

In the past few days, I’ve found my patience with people to be running thin. The people driving who dont use turn signals. The people in the store who stop right in front of where you’re looking. In general, I’m quickly losing faith in the human spirit, and the ability of people to even remember the golden rule, let alone live by it.

In times like these, I like to read Mother Theresa’s poem entitled “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 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.

    Zyou are wise beyond your years. Travel to the east and feel a sense of centeredness.
