Do it anyway

I came across these beautiful words. I needed to hear them.

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. 
    Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
    Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. 
   Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. 
   Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
   Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
  Give your best anyway.

From 2011-08-23

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
— Mother Teresa

Does this apply when your driving too?

if you know me, then you know that I am also the grammar police.

You meant, "when you're driving."

And yes, it applies at all times. Thanks for stopping by, Anonymous.
