Food for thought : becoming liked by most

Is it worth 'trying' to become liked by most, if not all?

A friend of mine asked me this question. its a tricky question. at first i thought replying, 'just be yourself'. But on second thought it came to my mind that often our ownself as project by us is blurry. we most often don't know ourself, let alone being it. So may be that answer is not fair.

Also perhaps the reply depends on what we think 'worth'.

I just found one saying by Ali, the spiritual successor of Prophet Muhammad (blessings be with them) where he ways, "Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you and if you are alive they crave for your company." Does it give any hints?

What is your thoughts, my friend? Pin It Now!
