Forgiveness is something that can eliminate hate and anger, allowing you to be at peace with yourself and with someone who has wronged you in some way. Your enemies expect you to hate them back in return. When you forgive those who are your enemies this not only annoys them but it also confuses them, because it is something completely unexpected that they are not prepared for. Holding on to negative emotions like anger and hate will not harm your enemies. When you do this the only one you are harming is yourself, and you are giving your enemies power over your life and thoughts. Forgiveness is the key to taking back this power, and this will also frustrate and annoy those who are against you.
When an enemy does something they are expecting a reaction from you, one that is negative and that fuels the dispute instead of putting the conflict to rest. It takes more than one individual to engage in an argument or other type of dispute. When you offer forgiveness and good will towards your enemies this takes you out of the equation, and your enemies will not know how to respond to this move. Instead of getting the expected outcome the simple act of forgiveness on your part changes everything. You will leave those who are against you without any path forward because your simple act removes all of their ammunition. Forgiveness is something that is positive and it will help reset the entire relationship that you have with those who consider themselves your enemy. Forgiveness can help you turn an enemy into a friend.
