Is it good to have enemies?
You have enemies... good.. that means you stood up for something in your life.. "IS THE STATEMENT CORRECT"?
I don't think it is a good idea to have enemies.
Having more friends is a better idea.
Thanks for the question
Is it good to have enemy? No, it is not good. This will not mean you stood up for something in life. Do I have enemy? Yes, my enemy is my best friend and we did fight like more than 6 time. Break each other tooth, broke each other nose, but its not really going to do any us good. Now that I'm a grown woman, I learn that fighting isn't going to solve anything and enemy doesn't mean that you stood up for something in life. What make a person stood up for something in life is helping yourself achieve a goal. I was raised from a poor family and people would call my dad a trash digger because he went out to dig trash for cans. Instead of talking back, he continue to dig trash and recycle those can to make a decent living. Guess what, we became wealthy because of that and this is what called, stood up for something in life. Proving someone else wrong without making enemy is the best way to stand up for something in life.
It's never good to have enemies, but if you don't have any enemies, chances are you're evasive in life and lack character. It's like having scars, it's never good to have body scars, but if you've never had any scars, you've probably lived a sheltered life.
You should stand up for yourself. We all should pick our debates carefully and decide on a case by case basis whether a particular situation is worth debating. You should be able to debate and or disagree with someone without becoming enemies. I am relatively new and love Hub Pages but I see people who argue in forums sometimes just for the sake of arguing. Seems futile when two parties that have opposite views continue back and forth as obviously there will be no resolution but who am I to say? To each is to own. I have learned a lot about different political and religious views here but avoid conflict in these two areas.
My opinion is that; No it is not good to have enemies.
Its never "good" to have enemies. But the reality is we do.
The statement you have is very generic. People have enemies for all types of reasons and no reason at all.... and not just because they stood up for something!!!!
Negativity of any kind is not a good thing; however, it is a reality most of us will deal with at some point. If possible, ignore them and live your life without their burdening attitude.
I stand firm in my beliefs and take pride in my choices. And I'm able to do it without causing enemies along the way.
Be a friend and make a number of friends. May God bless on us!!!
I think that statment is wrong. You do not have to have enemies to stand up for yourself.
Good? Hmm... I have heard that when you have "haters", you must be doing something right. Do you all really believe that or was that always my mother's way of helping me cope with hurt feelings and with having enemies? Since grade school, I can remember having people make up lies about me or say I thought I was "all that", and the thing that's kept me going is my belief that my positive traits intimidate others (my enemies). So, I'd like to believe having enemies means I'm doing something right! I don't know that it means I've/I'm standing for anything....
It is never good to have enemies. I don't believe that if you have them that equates you stood up for something or if you don't then you've lived an evasive life and lack character. The unfortunate reality is that people have enemies for absolutely no justifiable reason and sometimes even without their knowledge.
You cannot control how others think and their state of mind.You only have the power over your thoughts, emotions and actions. You could be the kindest, sweetest, most unselfish person on the Earth and there may be someone who can’t stand you because of their individual mind set.
This is exactly what racism, classism, sexism, and so on is – not liking someone, even hating someone and treating them inhumanely, solely because of their race, class, sex, and so on...and not for any justifiable reason.
