Feed the good wolf

➳ I have struggled with these feelings many times. It is as if there are two wolves inside me.

One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.

But the other wolf – he is full of darkness and destruction. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great.
Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.

Which one wins?

The one I feed.
