The Final Analysis
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 God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Rich,

Until a few months ago I would never have been able even to consider what you are saying here. But now it makes me think. Thanks for that.

Much love,
Larry

Nope. My comment just refers to issues of spirituality that arise for me because I was so often abused in a church or church-related context. It's something I have been struggling with over the past six months and discussing with friends here who are much further along in this area than I am.
