Hatred, jealousy, loving, backstabbing, gossiping etc, are all part of the aspects of human life. Even though to be a victim of hate or finding yourself in a center of hatred, especially when you have done anything wrong, can be very disturbing, one should always consider him/herself lucky when someone hates you. This sounds stupid isn’t it? You will later find out how your happiness kills your enemies without your knowledge.
In the first place ask yourself: Why this person does hate me? What does he or she wants from me? What have I done to him or her to deserve this? Knowing perfectly well that you haven’t done anything wrong to deserve what you are going, will give answers to your questions.
The reason may be that: You’ve got something special and unique. This may be your intelligence, personality, beauty, dressing, humbleness, success etc; which that person wants or wish to take them away from you but all seems impossible.
However, why do you need to be happy when going through such life difficulties? When someone is tormenting your life and you easily begin to show your weakness and the effect on you, the person becomes very happy indeed. It makes him or her feel that she is driving you insane.
Once you show that weakness, that’s when he/she will continue with his or her plans to make you more miserable. But when she sees you happy, that automatically kills her appetite to continue with her devilish plans to harm you. Frankly speaking, there is nothing which kills someone who hates you more than to see you smiling, laughing or happy.
I believe that Jesus Christ, as a great teacher knew this, the reason he said “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
