Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much. – Oscar Wilde
As we move along in life, we come across many people. We get to know some regularly while others remain as an acquaintance. We come across people who we connect with easily while there are others whose opinions are contradicting to others.
Different situations crop up – some of which fosters friendships while others make enemies. We need to deal with all of this variety as we proceed in life. Joyous situations and friendly people bring us happiness and we enjoy these situations.
But there are situations and people who do not seem pleasant to us and it’s difficult for us to deal with such people. We often work ourselves up and harbor negative feelings for such people who we often think of as enemies.
This negativity unknowingly affects us adversely. It takes away from our ability to think rationally and also eats away from the positive energy that we require to get through our daily lives. Thus, it is important that we know how to deal with our enemies.
The best way probably is to forgive them for the deed that has caused problems. If you move on, then you will have peace of mind and lead your normal life.
It is often observed that people who have a lot of spite often like to carry on the negativity. They will not really like to see that you have moved on but will want to continue to spew the hatred. If they see you peaceful and happy, they will in all probability not have peace of mind.
Thus, if you really want to get closure and teach some lessons to your enemy, then just forgive and forget – that is probably the best way to deal with the feud.
