As you cultivate relationships with other individuals, you must also try to avoid making enemies and learn to coexist
with your adversaries.

You should understand that even those people who do harm to you may be people with whom you have to do business at some point in the future.

As long as someone is a potential business contact, you should make every reasonable effort to keep the lines of communication open and maintain a civilized
relationship.

You should be the one to initiate communication following a conflict, even if the other person misunderstood you or wrongfully ridiculed you. While it may certainly be
appropriate (depending on circumstances) to confront those who purposely insult you or do you harm, you should avoid conflict.

You must be astute enough to avoid becoming the loser in such situations. By being sensitive to inherent hazards of a hostile relationship, you can give yourself a
chance to win the person over to having at least a "neutral" association with you.

The reality of the situation is that regardless of the reason behind an extremely adversarial relationship, such a relationship can have negative consequences. In turn, by
minimizing the forces working against you, you do away with resultant distractions and free your mind to focus on your work.
