“Let us forget with generosity those who cannot love us”
As we go through life, inevitably we come across people, who for one reason or another, don’t love, or even like us. Accepting this is part of growing.
And growth is an important goal. But letting go of enemies (no matter how benign) is equally important.
“When I do this, they’ll see” is a dangerous trap because it places those who don’t understand us in control.
Winning love from an enemy doesn’t represent success. Forgetting an enemy by gently taking the sting out of their imagined indictments does.
Work to please the love in your life, not those who withold it.
