sacrifice all for HIM, not 'him'

No matter how much we try, it is impossible to please everyone that we meet. Some people, like myself, will do everything that they possibly can to make other people happy, even if it means sacrificing their own sanity or happiness. One lesson, that needs to be learned at an early age, is that, no matter how hard we try, we cannot please every single person. Nor do we need to. God didn't put us on this earth to please everyone, he put us here to spread his word. That, may not always be accepted very well by some people. Some people don't like hearing about God. They resent him. And because of this, we cannot please everyone. There will always be at least one person, who doesn't like what you have to say, even though it is the truth. You just have to learn to persevere through that and keep preaching his word. The most important thing is that we do what is pleasing to the Lord. Don't let earthly things, or people, keep you from doing that.

 "So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God."- Colossians 1:10;
"Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God."- Hebrews 13:16
There is no greater joy than pleasing our Father.
