Sad truths

I have an enemy that is unknown to me. However, what I do know about my enemy, is that he or she is a very destructive person. Gossip is a poison dart and can cause the character of a person to become damaged permanently, because gossip spreads like wild fire. No matter how well-liked a person is, just one element of doubt, planted into the mind of any person can make them build up a wall against you, or make them always doubt that you can be word worthy. Enemies are rude when they make degrading comments to your face or behind your back. Murmuring insults as you walk past them is hurtful. Backbiting is something that you can never have a chance to defend because you are always absent from the discussion when it happens. Enemies set you up to look bad. They try to make you fail. They go out of their way to prove that you are every bit as pathetic as they make you out to be. They go to whatever extent they need, to convince someone that you are a bad person. They have a raging jealousy that can never be tamed. My enemy is in places that I have worked, or lived, or frequented. I don’t know anything about the personal life of my enemy because although he or she may be there, I am not aware of who my enemy is around me. Therefore, I know nothing about his or her likes or dislikes, who else they hate, what their favorite movie is, favorite food, favorite color, or any other trait they may have as a human being. This person will always be my enemy and it will always make me sad.

    Oh, boy. I have those same enemies. It’s a sad commentary on life when one chooses to close their minds to the person behind the words, looks, thoughts, or actions of another and forgo even the possibility of meeting the person inside and what they might possibly offer one in the way of new insights and friendship.

    Be nice. It cost us nothing where not being nice can cost us so much more than we are willing to pay in the loss of possibilities which are priceless. Making someone smile, making someone laugh, making someone feel good about themselves, being someone’s friend, being nice cost us nothing except a few seconds and perhaps, our pride.

    Thank you Dan, for your very insightful view. You’re right. It costs nothing for us to smile, be a friend, say a few kind words. It takes more of an effort to create havoc. Evil is a fierce whirlwind that sucks up everything in it’s path and spits it out tattered and torn.
    Yes, maybe the cost of pride; but this would be a good thing, right? 🙂
