Do you sometimes feel that the good you try to do is not appreciated or accepted? Do you sometimes feel like not giving your best because it would be wasted anyway? Do you sometimes feel that the happiness you have can be destroyed by others?
I know that I have felt all of those things, but what gives me the courage and strength to do what I know that I should do is realizing that everything I do is between me and God, and not between anyone else. No matter what we do, God always knows, and to serve God and follow the light brings the greatest happiness.
This is one of my absolute most favorite quotes and one I try to live my life by. I believe the point of life is to do as much good as you can regardless of whether or not it is known by anyone, appreciated by anyone, or even accepted by anyone. And that way your happiness is not dependent on anyone else either.
