Hello,my friends."enemy"means the one who always makes you angry with fire,even you want to beat him or disappear in front of you just now and never meet again forever... But enemy can also be a drive to awoke our vigor to work harder to exceed him,to prove that we are better than him. Enemy can be the one who get the first place but we are the second,can be the one who laugh at your fault,can be the one always such a little better than us...it's so hateful.... So will you welcome your "enemy" to be your friend? please show your sincere view.

Well, in the first place, enemies can also motivate you since you don't want to lose to them on certain things. But, as time goes by, having enemies corrupts your heart from kindness. It's not nice to keep bitterness or anger in our hearts. And yes it's hard to forgive and forget, but time heals all. I believe we only need to to forgive our enemies and accept them warmly as friends. We should also learn to forgive ourselves in order to forgive others. If only everyone would do that, the world would be such a better place. No anger, hatred, bitterness...

I usually describes my enemy as one who doesn't like me for whatever reason. I don't go around not-liking people, especially those who I don't know and those people who I dont like, I usually don't consider them as my enemy. So with that said, I could not possible be friends with an enemy. I can't be friends with csomeone who doesn't like me.

Hey ifglan, I don't think it's good to improve yourself juz to be better than someone else. It will create an unhealthy competition but it's OK if you and your 'enemy' do not compete to the dangerous extent. For example, some people compete for a girl and sometimes they go to great extent such as backstab, lying and it may result in fighting.

It depends on how he/she became my enemy in the first place. If he/she was my friend before and becomes my enemy by losing my trust, I don't usually rebuild my trust that easily and probably won't befriend him/her again. However, though, if I met someone who is my enemy at first, well, I may consider it since I most probably know that person yet. I just had one incident last week during the job offer at my new company. He was around 40+ years old. He was too cocky. We were 5 in the room and he keeps on babbling that, "What a contract? Why will it take long? I won't sign this..." and probably it was just one of his attitudes. Guess what? He was the first who signed. Well, I give him the benefit of the doubt until I actually know him personally.

It would depend on the misunderstanding or fight we had.I had a friend that i really hate and promised to never friend with her anymore.This is due to the pain she caused on me and it still here until now.

I don't have an "enemy", i think we should use a different word. ahhaha. I don't know what that word is though. And yes, I will welcome that person as long as he will stop [or minimize] or not do the things that make me angry and mad.

If a person is my enemy,I would not be there friend,but I would at least act like there friend and keep a close eye on them because as the old saying goes keep your friends close,but keep your enemies closer,which is a very good saying to live by,because if you keep them really close,it is harder for them to do anything to hurt you.

Of course I'll have to extend my olive hand to my enemy. Because friends are assets. When I was getting married my friends were involved in arranging and organizing everything.

If I made friends with my enemy I cannot talk to them freely because while I am talking with them the quarrel happened between us will pinch that means it will be realising so i don't allow them to made friends

well buddy let me tell you that enemy is just a feeling and what i will do is see back the whole situation and find out if there is any problem on my side and then think about it for sometime and then i will just as for pardon if it is completely my fault or else i will wait for a while for the other person to respond and then go and ask him to review the entire situation and then i wil make him find out what is correct and what is wrong. Happy Mylotting.
