This has been on my heart for the last few years. No matter how good you try to be, there’s still bad in it, so just do the good that you can control and the rest will work itself out.

The real kicker in trying to be good though is that you see so many people doing bad and they’re getting ahead. There are some real assholes out there achieving their personal goals while those of us that are trying to do it the right way have to work ten times as hard. That really burns my grits, but I know that in doing good, the payoff will be better because I didn’t have to sacrifice anything I believe to get there.

Thanks for this!!
