Look into the motives behind your actions. Often you don't go for things you really want.
You go to things because others would want you to or because of what others would say, think, or do about it.
If you do good for people, you are doing it out of your nature.
Forget about how they behave, what their reaction towards you is.
It's up to them. Let them carry their cross. Keep your mind free.
Shadows appear very big, much bigger than you, but they have no existence. Smaller the light, bigger the shadow appears. If it is total darkness, then also there is no shadow. So partial knowledge, a partial light, partial vision, brings the shadow. And it makes the shadow appear very huge, very big. But know it is just a shadow.
