A Cherokee legend
An old man was sitting in front of the fire with his grandson
"My son," he said "Inside every person's heart lives two wolves.
These wolves are locked into battle every day and only one can win.
One is filled with anger, greed, envy, bitterness, pride, selfishness,
pain, rejection, hatred, fear and destruction."
The other is filled with hope, justice, caring, humility, joy, kindness,
sharing, peace and love."
"Grandfather," asked the boy anxiously "which wolf wins the battle?"
The old man smiled tenderly at the boy and replied
"The one you feed"
I will no longer allow my abuser to feed a wolf. I have regained control of my heart!
