You better be good!

Goodness is not a medal to be worn, it is a choice to be made.   


And like any other choice, it comes with a set of consequences – you are sometimes left vulnerable, sometimes stranded, sometimes outraged, sometimes taken advantage of, sometimes underestimated, sometimes finishing last, sometimes manipulated, sometimes taken granted for, sometimes shortchanged, and sometimes simply ignored.

That’s why the only way you can remain ‘good’ is by developing a strong deep-rooted self-esteem – an ability to shrug it off with a smile, to forget the sting, to forgive the rascals, to take the rejection in your stride, to again take a leap of faith, to ignore the talk behind the back, to retain the innocence to trust, and to not let humiliation define your self-worth.


Well! It is not an easy road that anyone can tread. It is only meant for the ‘league extraordinaire’. 🙂
