“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”Martin Luther King Jr.
Every student knows a little something about enemies and conflict. They don’t get along with everybody and these inevitable conflicts force them to make choices about how to treat other people. These choices have real consequences as they impact their capacities to build and sustain friendships.
Here civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is asserting that when you are in conflict with your enemies, love and kindness is the best way to convert them into your friends. Hate will get you nowhere.
But sometimes you should stand up for yourself in front of your enemies. Don’t be weak. Defend yourself in an assertive way and you just may win a friend.
What is the best way to convert an enemy into a friend?
