Welcome to CDH. Speaking as someone who grew up in an angry household and was an angry young man….. I have found that we are all just here for a while. On earth we are temporary. That makes our problems temporary. When they say this too shall pass, it will one way or another. There are many times when we have no control over anything except one thing, our attitude towards what is happening. I am reminded of the story of the two wolves….
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
I have found this to be true in my life.
