A donkey and a pig shared a field. One year, a big drought killed most of the animal's main source of food - the grass.
So the farmer began feeding them grain. While the donkey ate a minimal amount every day, the pig ate and ate, even after he was full. He became quite fat.
When winter came, the farmer took the chubby pig away, leaving the donkey all alone.
Lonely, the donkey refused to eat. "Please, I beg you," the farmer said. "Eat something!"
But the donkey just shook his head, even though he was getting weaker by the day.
Finally, the sun began to shine as spring arrived, melting the snow. The grass began to grow again. The donkey slowly began to munch on the grass.
"Very good!" the farmer said when he noticed the donkey getting stronger. Soon, he had returned to full strength.
Despite the farmer giving him all the food he could ever want, the donkey trusted his instincts and only ate until he was full.
Remembering his old friend, the pig, the donkey had learned an important lesson:
Overconsumption does not bring happiness. You should consume only as much as you need, but not to much.
