Putting out the fire with gasoline

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

The fire you kindle for your enemy often burns you more than him." Chinese Proverb

We all have enemies in life . It's a given. Someone is always going to dislike you, try to change you,(and not for the good) hurt you, betray you and in the process just make you darn out miserable.

Well what happens, we hate them back. We plot revenge. We become as bitter and misguided as they are some times more. Sometimes this intense hate consumes us it is all we think about, getting even , why did they do it? How do we make it stop? Sometimes the situation gets so bad that it effects our sleep, our eating habits , and our stress . When this happens not only does it make you miserable but it makes it so much harder to lose weight, to get to the gym, to look and feel our best.

So the next time someone tries to be your enemy I say kill them!!!!With love of course. First see where they are coming from. Are they jealous, hurting in their lives. Then try to understand them. Try to talk to them ,let them know they are hurting you. Some people are so caught up in their own miseries they don't realize what they have done.

If you can it is best to talk it out. If you can't it is best to walk away , but try not to hate and stew and plot and obsess. Journal, and talk to a friend , go for walks,listen to music .Don't let them get into your head at all.

Remember you are the light of Love. There is a fire of hope and promise within you. You are special and unique. You are You. The next time a enemy tries to light a fire , put it out with the gasoline of Love. It will stop them in their tracks and you may even find a friend in the process. But if not you will sleep well my friends. Hugs

    Just what I needed tonight. I have ad three friend call me tonight to vent and to get me worked up over their "injustice" or what happened to them at work. I have been working very hard over the past few months to not take a ride on that train. I am not going to put on other people's problems as my own. It has taken me nearly 43 years to learn how to do this, but it is well worth it. Your blog just confirmed that for me. Thanks!

    I agree stressing over these things, can consume you. Do what you can, and move along with your plan. Thank you for this. emoticon

    There will always be people you can't see eye to eye with but with some humanity you can be civil and make peace with them.
    Those who just can't take that path I omit from my life- it's too short.

    Great blog emoticon

    Funny how this subject arose today , almost like this was meant for me to read. I just had an experience in this exact situation - and its was here on Spark , that someone took me off as a friend because I did not respond to their page as much as they thought I should have , it hurt me deeply , I felt that I was selfish as to not get to their page as I felt I should have - I had a difficult time with sleep last night over this issue. I will not stew on this issue or Kindle its fire any further. I will pray for that person . Thanks Joanne - Hugs K emoticon

    You know sometimes there are people that in able to get along with them you just have to agree to disagree on certain points or areas. you are going to have these people in your lives all the time. And you either make peace with them or just don't bother with them. thanks again for your words.

    It doesn't have to be as strong as hate, it can just be dislike, or antipathy, and they too can be overcome
