Three guys who didn't like each other

There were three guys who didn't like each other. They competed against each other, even worked for each other and then left each other. They just didn't like each other one bit. No love lost.

Years later, they are sending each other business, two are now working together and are happy about it. They all get along well and respect each other with no underlying issues.

Did they have a knockdown, drag-out fight? Did they get counseling? Did they talk from the heart? Did they apologize? Did someone intervene?

Nope, they just got older. They realized what they did best and fortunately they stopped stepping onto each other's turf; and maybe in one case, one of them became realistic about what he could (or couldn't) do without either of them. Time and distance have brought them closer together.
