No Longer Enemies

     To act hateful towards an enemy only makes their hateful feeling stronger.  It justifies—in their minds—their reason for hating you in the first place.  Love, on the other hand, diminishes the hateful feeling, and forces the one with the hatred to reevaluate their feelings toward you and their feelings inside of themselves; until eventually, you’re no longer enemies but friends.
