“In the end, we will not remember the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Sometimes doing the right thing means that you will face scorn and ridicule from other people. Often this opposition takes the form of angry words thrown against us. As much as these words hurt us, there is a different kind of pain we feel when those in whom we place our trust end up letting us down. Friends and enemies have the power to injure us and so we must find strategies for coping with both situations.
According to civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., betrayal from friends is worse than criticism from foes.
Hostility from your enemies is worse than betrayal from your friends.
Do you need loyalty to fight injustice?
