“When we hate our enemies,
we are giving them power over us:
power over our sleep,
our blood pressure,
and our happiness.
Our enemies would dance with joy
if only they knew how they were worrying us, lacerating us, and getting even with us!
Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our days and nights into a hellish turmoil.” - Dale Carnegie
This is the real reason why you want to forgive and love your enemies. Because it helps YOU. Not because you condone them. But because you want more for yourself.
