Why We Should Be Kind at All Times...

The people in our life don't always approve of our actions. Sometimes you may feel conditioned or limited to doing certain things simply through fear of other people's reactions or appraisals. You may also do good things that turn out to be useless and under-appreciated in the end, no matter how hard you've worked. The following paradoxical commandments teach us that whatever you do and however you act in life, you should always follow your own path and rightfully believe in it - it will lead to fewer regrets in the long run!

1. People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
