Inse and Curity were the best of friends. They did everything together, and they always had each other’s backs. They loved their pet dog, Max, more than anything in the world. Max was a part of their family, and they couldn’t imagine life without him.
One day, when Inse and Curity came home from school, their parents broke the news to them that Max had passed away. Inse and Curity were devastated. They couldn’t believe that their beloved pet was gone forever. They were angry, sad, and confused all at the same time.
Inse was struggling to come to terms with the loss. He couldn’t stop thinking about all the times he had spent with Max. He kept hearing the voice of insecurity in his head, telling him that he would never be able to get over this loss. Curity, on the other hand, was more accepting of the situation. She knew that Max was in a better place, and she focused on the positive memories that they had shared together.
As Inse and Curity sat in their backyard, looking at Max’s empty doghouse, they began to talk about their emotions. Inse was feeling overwhelmed with sadness, but Curity reminded him of the second transformation – using the voice of insecurity as amusement and inspiration. She suggested that they share their favorite memories of Max to remember the good times they had with him.
Inse took a deep breath and began to think of all the times Max had made him laugh. He remembered the time Max had stolen his sandwich and ran away with it. Inse laughed at the memory, feeling a little better. Curity shared her own favorite memory of Max, when he had snuggled up with her when she was sick.
They both realized that the third transformation was also important in this situation – letting themselves be guided by the voice of security. They reminded themselves of all the love Max had brought into their lives, and how they were lucky to have had him as their pet.
The next day, Inse and Curity decided to make a photo album of Max. They printed out all the pictures they had taken of him, and they even drew some of their own. As they worked on the album, they talked about the good times they had shared with Max. They were able to use the fourth transformation – taking action – to create something positive out of the situation.
As they finished the photo album, Inse and Curity both realized that the fifth transformation was also important – befriending the two inner voices. They acknowledged that it was okay to feel sad and to miss Max, but that they could also feel grateful for the time they had spent with him.
In the end, Inse and Curity found comfort and strength in the positive memories and lessons they had learned through the five transformations. They knew that they would always miss Max, but they also knew that he would always be a part of their family.
Inse: “I can’t stop thinking about Max. I miss him so much.”
Curity: “I know, Inse. It’s okay to be sad. But remember, we have so many good memories of him too.”
Inse: “But what if I never stop feeling sad?”
Curity: “That’s where the second transformation comes in. We can use the voice of insecurity as amusement and inspiration. We can think about all the times Max made us laugh and smile.”
Inse: “Okay, that sounds good. Let’s make a photo album of all our memories with Max.”
Curity: “That’s a great idea, Inse. We can use the fourth transformation – taking action – to create something positive out of the situation.
With a heavy heart, Inse and Curity returned home without their beloved pet. As they sat on the front porch, Inse’s voice of insecurity crept in, telling him that he could have done more to save their pet. Curity recognized the voice of insecurity and reminded Inse that they did everything they could and that their pet knew how much they loved him.
Over the next few days, Inse struggled to deal with the loss of his pet. He found it hard to eat, sleep, and concentrate at school. Curity tried her best to support her brother and reminded him of the five transformations. She encouraged him to use the voice of insecurity as inspiration and amusement, and to let the voice of security guide him through this difficult time.
One day, Inse was sitting in the backyard, staring at the empty space where his pet’s bed used to be. He closed his eyes and tried to remember all the happy moments he shared with his pet. Suddenly, he felt a warm breeze on his face, and when he opened his eyes, he saw a butterfly perched on a nearby flower. The butterfly reminded him of his pet, who loved to chase butterflies in the garden.
Inse felt a sense of peace and comfort wash over him. He realized that he could honor his pet’s memory by cherishing the happy moments they shared together. He also remembered the fifth transformation and decided to befriend both his inner voices. He acknowledged that it was natural to feel sad and insecure after losing a loved one, but he could also find joy and security in the memories they shared.
Curity was proud of her brother for using the five transformations to cope with the loss of their pet. She reminded him that they would always have each other and that their pet would always be in their hearts.
Inse smiled and thanked his sister for her support. He knew that the pain of losing their pet would never go away completely, but he also knew that he had the tools to deal with it.
