The same person you want to destroy, is the same person who is keeping you alive.
Some people are so blind to the point of not seeing the very same person they want to destroy, is the one that is keeping them alive.
Whether in politics, business or personal lives, there are backstabbers, gossipers, badmouthers and backbiters who would want to bring you down.
On the flip side of the coin, we end up being oblivous to the fact, blindly so, that not everyone has it against you. As we go through life’s struggles and challenges, we loose faith and trust in people. We put everyone in one basket, thus forgeting that, not everyone will want to pull you down.
Why do people want to destroy other people?
Some seek to destroy others out of a sense of self-preservation. Maybe the perpetrator has been caught doing something shady, and he lashes out at the accuser to discredit them.
There are those who seek to destroy people they perceive as having wronged them. Others destroy people out of a need for control, or a sense of envy.
Seeing people who are happy stirs an awareness of their own emptiness in these people, but rather than being inspired to change their own lives to eliminate the emptiness inside them. Some destroy those they consider to be their competition.
There are also those who destroy others to entertain themselves. There are also people who destroy others because of greed, corruption, self righteousness, self enrichment and many others.
The examples are endless and no matter the reason or thought, just do not end up destroying the same person who holds the key to your life. It is the same person you curse, ridicule, belittle and/or undermine that is keeping you alive on one end.
Even when something good or excellent is happening and can bring change in our lives, we are so consumed with anger, dissapointments and hatred that we do not see its benefits. I have been dissapointed so many times that I have lost count.
I, however, still see good in people and how their intentions might save my situation, life or company. Our eyes are placed in front of us because, it is important to look ahead than to look back.
So, do not worry about people who are plotting behind your( that is where they belong and forever will be) and focus on people who are in front of you; they do not want to destroy you, instead, they want to keep you alive.
