Which wolf are you feeding?

A older story with a great message....thought I would share.

One evening an Old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said “My son, the battle is between ‘two wolves’ inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, self-doubt, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. "

"The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, patience, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, gratitude, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
