You definitely have an enemy!

मृगमीनसज्जनानांतृणजसन्तोषविहितवृत्तीनाम् |
लुब्धकधीवरपिशुना निष्कारणमेव वैरिणो जगति ||

Deer, fish, and sages, who only require grass, water, and peace in the world, are wantonly pursued by huntsmen, fishermen, and envious people. Those who presume to be living without enemies are either ignorant or fools.

Bhartrihari in Neeti Shatakam
