Be What You Are!

Be Perfectly Happy To Be What You Are!

There are those who seem to enjoy being unpleasant for the sake of it.
There are lots of others who are spiteful, scornful, snobbish, hurtful, selfish
and small-minded.

Obviously, as an idealistic and caring person, one is not one of them.
Now that circumstances are forcing one to deal with someone of this nature,
resist the temptation to encourage them to adopt a more gracious approach.

They're perfectly happy as they are.
Leave them be.
Be perfectly happy to be what you are, too.

The law of our life can be summed up in the axiom
"be what you are"

Thomas Merton
