I don’t know if hostility is an emotion, or a type of interpersonal relationship.
Anyhow, if inmity requires to be mutual, I’ve never had enemies.
It must be due to my attitude. I take every relationship seriously, and I’d rather not waste any effort in being hostile. Plus, I have high standards and it takes me a lot to think of someone as an enemy. Let me explain how.
All my unpleasant connections can be divided into two groups.
People I compete with.
It could be someone at work, someone who approaches my crush, and so on.
I’m secretly competitive, and jealous.
I don’t know how much of a secret that would be now.
I have no sympathy towards rivals, but I respect them.
Fair play is important when it comes to competitions.
People who hurt me.
I tend to not avenge directly, I usually let the karma do its job.
Meanwhile, I wait for those who hurt me to pay back.
Sure, I do forgive, but it’s easier to forgive when someone gets their lesson.
I don’t really respect debtors, but I have sympathy for them.
I really hope they can learn from their mistakes and become better people.
You can guess what it takes to be an enemy. No respect, and no sympathy.
It’s really hard for me to get that far.
To be honest, it happened once. And lasted for about 5 minutes. Does it matter?
Do you have enemies?
I used to
Do you share a similar view as mine?
More or less
