A story I need to remember

A wise lady I know just posted this on a local yahoo group that I’m a member of:

Two Wolves

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 wolf represents the negatives in our life. It is anger, envy, jealousy,
sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority,
lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other represents the Good in our life. It is joy, peace, love, hope,
serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth,
compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about all of this for a minute and then turned to his
grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old man looked him intently and said, “The one you feed.”
