Thank you for sharing. I understand exactly what you're saying. I took the story to represent my own battles within between good and bad. It helped me to realize that trying to always do good and sometimes the bad comes out isn't failure on my part. I need to work on taking the good parts of both and use them to better my life. I love reading stories that have Native History. The stories are down to earth yet filled with great knowledge and meaning. When reading history books,the Bible, and even watching the news today it is heartbreaking that we as humans have not learned how to love each other and live together.
I have never thought about my inner self in that way and never realized that I needed to pay attention to both because of the qualities that each brings to my life. I appreciate the insight. Thank you.
