Some people are meant to be lovers or strangers, but they become friends. After a while they become enemies.
Some people are meant to be strangers, but they cross a line, and they become enemies.

Some people believe they are entitled to everything life has to offer on this temporal plane: money, good job, gorgeous spouse, perfect kids, mammoth house, new cars. Then it just doesn't happen as they planned, and they become everyone's enemy.
Some people have absolutely no God belief. Often, these people are the most benevolent, because they are serious about life. They don't need a book or clergy to tell them what is right and what is wrong.
