Psychological wolf fights.

A story to share.

One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside every person.

He said, "My grandson, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
It's a terrible fight and it's between two wolves.

One is evil - guilt, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, lies, low self esteem, false pride, ego - he has all of them." 

He continued, "The other is good - he has kindness, joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith."

"The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too." said the old man wisely.

The grandson thought about it for a while and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old man simply replied,
"The one you feed".
