Hey Kid: Love Enemies
“You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.” ~Winston Churchill ... and even better than that, Jesus said, "Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Don't be afraid to be hated, ridiculed, or criticized. You're not always going to make everyone happy. Nor should you try. Standing up for what is right and just is much more important. Evil exists in this world and you might as well figure out quickly who's with you and who's against you. Just remember, the blessings don't come when you're persecuted for being a jerk. Make sure your behavior is in line with your true, moral character and everything will work out in the end.
