Inse was feeling scared and alone. Every day, a classmate named Max would push him around and call him mean names. Inse didn’t know what to do, and he felt like he couldn’t tell anyone.
One day, as he walked home from school, he met Curity. She was sitting on a bench, reading a book. Inse told her about Max and how he was always mean to him.
Curity listened carefully, and then she smiled. “Inse, I know it’s tough, but you have to stand up for yourself. You are strong and brave, and you can do it.”
Inse didn’t feel very strong or brave, but he wanted to try. With Curity’s help, he started using the five transformations.
First, he ignored the voice of insecurity that told him he couldn’t stand up to Max. Then, he used that voice as inspiration to come up with a plan.
Next, he listened to the voice of security, which told him he was strong and capable. He started to believe in himself.
When Max started to bully him again, Inse took action. He told Max to stop, and he stood up for himself. Max was surprised, and he stopped bullying Inse.
Inse and Curity became friends, and Inse learned that he didn’t have to be scared anymore. He knew that he could stand up for himself, and he felt stronger and more confident than ever before.
