No matter how hard you try
Or how closely you hold onto your values
You will always do and say things that can be taken out of context
And present the appearance of your failure or your lack of good intentions.

Read that again and be well reminded that this problem... is not in your hands.
"No matter how hard you try..."
It is in the hands of your partner, lover, spouse... husband, wife, friend...
And it is up to you to trust that they will not judge you with an imperfect view.

Getting the whole picture is up to them...
Sticking to your values and doing your best, is up to you.
The real problems start when you stop believing that they trust your good intentions.
Because you can do no more than you are already doing.

Be true to yourself,
and let others follow if they want.

Don't chase the quicksilver of someone else's opinions or mistrust.
You will lose yourself.

Just be you.

You are already good enough.
