Everyone has enemies. Whether at work, school, church, family, etc. there's an enemy lurking somewhere. In fact, the person who says they don't have any enemies need only to wait until they come along. Of course, enemies are not necessarily people who want to kill you. They're the ones who don't like you for one reason or another. Perhaps you're better at an talent or job better than they. Maybe they are jealous of your success or happy moments in your life. We tend to call them haters. According the Urban dictionary, a hater is "A person that simply cannot be happy for another person's success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person. Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock somelse down a notch."

I'm sure most of us have this sort of person in our lives.

Yet, what if the enemy, the hater, is not an external person but the one staring at you in the mirror? The one with eyes like yours, hair like yours, a body like yours? It's the enemy that knows every single thought you have. They're aware of every flaw you have. What do you do about the enemy who looks like you.
