What Enemies Become
Once upon a time, there was a king who was troubled by the anger and envy he felt towards his enemies in the castle. One day he talked to his closest advisors and promised them written in blood:
“I will conquer and defeat all my enemies, and cast them out of my kingdom!”
One evening many months later, his closest confidant discovered the king walking in the gardens with his worst enemies, laughing and sharing intimate stories from his life. Upon his return to the castle, he asked the king: “Didn’t you say you will conquer all your enemies, until none will be left in this kingdom?”
“I had” answered the king. “I forgave them all and turned them into my friends. Now I found peace.”
