    This reminded me of a story I read a while ago. Chances are you are already familiar with it, but I’ll share it in case you are not.

    The Fight of Two Wolves Within You

    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.”

    If you are your own worst enemy,
    And the enemy of your enemy ( which is you) is your friend,
    Then, You, yourself, is your friend.

    Such a paradox..
