Stop justifying yourself for every action

If you wish to be liked by everyone then that is not going to happen.

Nothing happens if nobody likes you. Wishing to be liked by a particular person or group is creating unwanted burden and tension.

Even if you do lot of good things, there will be people who will continue to dislike you and be thankless.

Like – dislike such things should not affect you. When you worry for someone disliking you, in reality you are worrying for his or her ignorance. It is their bad luck that they do not understand your goodness.
Stop justifying yourself for every action.
