[Best Pick] Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

Hey guys! Welcome back to [Best Pick]!

Many of us would not encounter a real enemy on the battleground in a real war, but we are still surrounded in life by various people who could be our enemies potentially. Here, the enemy refers to the person who hates or opposes us and tries to harm or stop us from doing something. Enemies may bring us negative effects like emotional impact, social reputation detriment and physical hurt by foul tricks, whereas we should also realize they could benefit us by the opposite ways. How could it be?

Follow us in today’s Best Pick! 

Let’s go!

1. It’s a practical lesson in anger management

Your enemies are the best people to help you understand your sense of anger management. When it might be true that your enemies have a way of bringing out the worst in you as regards anger, it is also true that they can help you in your quest to have that anger managed. You can’t get truly angry at someone you love and it is only in that time when you get truly annoyed that you learn how to manage it.

Anger management is more effective when it is in practice and not in theory

Your enemies are like the therapists who you need, but actually don’t want. Inasmuch as you might want to hate them, they provide you an opportunity to control the anger impulse that you have.

2. It’s an opportunity for healthy competition

You might not know it, but your enemies make for great rivals as they help harness the competitor in you (sometimes, you might not even know or bee conversant with this competitive side until you come across an adversary). You get the right motivation to compete and this can go a long way to spur you to victory.

However, while doing so, it is also essential that you remember not to become a worse version of yourself while competing. Working against an adversary is tricky, and you need to ensure that you don’t cause harm to yourself or your morals in the process. Healthy competition is all you need to get out of this.

3. Their negative comments can help you make a breakthrough

It is true that your enemies never really have much good to say about you. However, in as much as they might be talking out of a place of hate, there might be some truth to what they’re saying.

To wit, whenever you hear something mean or nasty from an enemy, you might want to take a step back and evaluate yourself. There is a chance that what this enemy is saying is true and coming to face that fact is a major step in helping you to become a better person overall. This is another testament to the fact that enemies can be therapists in their own way.

  • Is better to try to love our enemies for a better peaceful life, especially if we have them close by.

  • Yup, my enemies make me more objective and irrational.
    On the other hand in the company of friends, I use to be less productive.
