Once upon a time, there was a young boy named Inse who had a hard time controlling his anger and frustration. Inse would often get upset and angry when things didn’t go his way, and he didn’t know how to deal with those feelings.
One day, his sister Curity came to him and said, “Inse, I want to help you learn how to handle your anger and frustration in a healthy way.” Inse was hesitant at first, but he trusted his sister and agreed to listen.
Curitytold Inse that when he felt angry or frustrated, he should take a deep breath and think about what was causing those feelings. Inse tried it out, and he found that taking a deep breath helped him calm down and think more clearly.
Then, Curity told Inse about the voice of insecurity and the voice of security. She explained that the voice of insecurity was like a little voice in your head that made you feel bad about yourself, while the voice of security was like a little voice in your head that made you feel good about yourself. Curity told Inse that he should always listen to the voice of security and ignore the voice of insecurity.
Inse didn’t quite understand, so Curity decided to show him. She took Inse outside and pointed up at the sky. “Look up there,” she said. “What do you see?”
Inse looked up and saw a big, fluffy cloud. “I see a cloud,” he said.
“Now, what do you think about that cloud?” Curity asked.
Inse thought for a moment. “It’s white and fluffy, and it looks like a big marshmallow,” he said.
“Exactly!” Curity said. “That’s the voice of security. It helps you see the good things in life. But sometimes, the voice of insecurity tries to make you think bad thoughts, like ‘That cloud is too big and scary.’ You have to ignore that voice and listen to the voice of security instead.”
Inse nodded and smiled. He was starting to understand.
Over the next few days, Curity helped Inse practice using the five transformations whenever he felt angry or frustrated. They would take deep breaths together, and Curity would remind Inse to listen to the voice of security and ignore the voice of insecurity.
Eventually, Inse began to feel more in control of his emotions. He still got angry and frustrated sometimes, but he knew how to handle those feelings in a healthy way. And he knew that his sister Curity would always be there to help him when he needed it.
From that day forward, Inse and Curity were the best of friends, and Inse was grateful to have such a kind and wise sister.
