The Wolves Within

People who suffer from an personality disorder can be filled with hate. This explain why you will experience from time to time “narcissistic rages”. I believe whenever we fill ourselves up with hate it will consume us and will destroy all that which is good in that person sociality and the general public. So I would advise others to feed only the “good” wolf and starve the other one. Hate it self is pointless and will only promote more of the same.

~The Wolves Within~

An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a schoolmate who had done him an injustice, Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times.

He continued, 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, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing. Sometimes it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked,

“Which one wins, Grandfather?” The Grandfather smiled and said, “The one I feed, son, the one I feed.
