You are Your Own Worst Enemy

“Love your enemies and be kind to them.” I believe every one of us must have heard of this saying since we were kids. This is one of the life lessons that our parents or grandparents always teach us. But you might ask – why do I have to love my enemies?

If you have an enemy, you are most likely an enemy to someone as well. At times, when you mistreat your enemy, your enemy might do the same to you. When you talk about the person behind his/her back, the person might backstab you in return. You might want to agitate your enemy, and your enemy might as well want to do the same.

When this cycle goes on and on, you are your own worst enemy. Why worth the fight then?

不要成為自己最大的敵人

相信從小到大,我們每一個人都聽過這樣一句話:「善待你的敵人。」這是家人經常教導我們的,生命中無比重要的一課。但你可能會問——為什麼我要善待我的敵人呢?

如果你有所謂的敵人,你也很可能是其他一些人的敵人。很多情況下,你傷害了他們,他們也必會錙銖必較。當你在背後談論某人時,那個人也很可能會惡意中傷你。當你想激怒你的對手時,他們也可能會冤冤相報。

當這場戰爭無休止地進行下去的時候,你會成為自己最大的敵人。那麼這樣做還有什麼意義呢?
