Putting out the fire with gasoline

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
