Never Regret Being A Good Person

Never regret being a good person to the wrong people. Your behaviour says everything about you, and their behaviour says enough about them. People are always out to prove something to other people. You don’t need to worry about impressing others. Prove things only to yourself. Being good is the best legacy you can leave behind. Be a good person, but don’t waste your time proving it.
