People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.
FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
BE KIND ANYWAY.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
If you are hones and sincere people may deceive you.
BE HONEST AND SINCERE ANYWAY.
What you spend years creating, other could destroy overnight.
CREATE ANYWAY.If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
BE HAPPY ANYWAY.The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
DO GOOD ANYWAY.Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY.In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

When you have been given the gift of the Holy Ghost and don't follow it's prompting. You are moving away from being trusted by the Lord. Even when you don't even realize that you've missed the chance to change someones life, until someone points out the missed opportunity. You feel so guilty about everything, and pray for another chance to follow the promptings of the spirit. Maybe someday you may cross paths with that person again. Helping them receive the same gift you have, by having the Holy Ghost. It's definitely a challenge to follow every prompting. I think it's hard for you to figure out which is the spirit or yourself. When you can figure that out you need not worry and just trust in the Lord. He knows what he needs us to say when we get the chance to share his gospel with all those that are placed in our path.
