There is a lot of fighting going on in this world right now.   It has made me think of the situations that I have been faced with the past few years.   I have found so many reasons to fight and none were really appropriate.   There has been these conflicts that have arisen around me.   It is so easy to get angry and jump in and fight over something that does not matter because you feel you deserve to be respected.

The following story may assist you the next time you are compelled to fight.   Fighting is not always the answer.   Think about it, who will benefit.  Trust me if you are being egged on — it is those that are feeding the fire.

A pointed fable is told about a young lion and a cougar. Both thirsty, the animals arrived at their usual water hole at the same time. They immediately began to argue about who should satisfy their thirst first. The argument became heated, and each decided he would rather die than give up the privilege of being first to quench his thirst.
As they stubbornly confronted each other, their emotions turned to rage. Their cruel attacks on each other were suddenly interrupted. They both looked up. Circling overhead was a flock of vultures waiting for the loser to fall. Quietly, the two beasts turned and walked away. The thought of being devoured was all they needed to end their quarrel.
