Don’t be afraid of losing people. Be afraid of losing yourself by trying to please everyone around you.
Jenni Young McGill
Dear Human — If you do not destroy me, I will give you: Shelter, food, water, and oxygen.
What we really are matters more than what other people think of us.
The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticising others, we should evaluate and criticise ourselves. Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our day to day lives.
You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot by force.
