It was a bright and sunny day, and Inse was feeling nervous. He had a difficult homework assignment that he didn’t understand and didn’t know what to do. Inse had a voice in his head that told him he was dumb and would never figure it out.
As he walked home from school, he saw his sister Curity playing hopscotch with her friends. She noticed that Inse looked worried and asked him what was wrong. Inse explained his homework problem and the voice in his head that was making him feel insecure.
Curity listened carefully and told Inse about the five transformations that could help him. She said the first step was to ignore the voice of insecurity in his head. Inse wasn’t sure how to do that, but Curity explained that it meant he should try not to listen to the negative thoughts and instead focus on the positive things he could do.
The second transformation was to use the voice of insecurity as inspiration and amusement. Curity suggested Inse try to laugh at the negative thoughts and use them to motivate himself to find a solution.
The third transformation was to listen to the voice of security. Curity reminded Inse that he was a smart boy and could ask his teacher or classmates for help. She encouraged him to see the good things in life and to believe in himself.
The fourth transformation was to take action, and Inse knew he had to do something. He decided to take Curity’s advice and ask his teacher for help. When he got to class the next day, he approached his teacher and explained his problem. His teacher was happy to help, and they worked on the homework together until Inse understood it.
The fifth transformation was to befriend the two inner voices. Inse realized that he could choose to listen to the positive voice of security instead of the negative voice of insecurity. He felt proud of himself for asking for help and was grateful to his sister Curity for showing him the way.
As Inse walked home from school that day, he felt happy and confident. He couldn’t wait to show his completed homework assignment to his sister and teacher.
The title of this book is “Inse Finds Confidence: A Story About Overcoming Insecurity.” It’s a story that teaches young children how to believe in themselves and use the five transformations to conquer their fears and anxieties.
