A Wise Story from and Old Indian Chief.

An old Cherokee Indian Chief was teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside of me,” he said to his grandson. “It is a terrible fight between two wolves.”  
 
“One is evil, angry, envious, sorrowful, regretful, greedy, arrogant, self-pitying, guilt-ridden, resentful, full of superiority and ego driven” then the Chief paused and said…..”The other wolf is joyful, peaceful, loving, hopeful, serene, humble, empathetic, generous, truthful, compassionate and faithful.”  
 
“The same fight is going on inside of you, grandson, and in every other person.” said the Chief.  
 
The grandson thought about this for a moment, turned to the Chief and said, “But grandfather, which wolf will win?”  
 
The old Cherokee turned to his grandson and replied “That depends upon the one that you feed.”
