Once upon a time, in a small village nestled in the hills, there lived a young boy named Inse and his sister Curity. Inse was a sensitive boy who felt things deeply, while Curity was a confident girl who always seemed to know how to handle her emotions.
One day, Inse was feeling sad and couldn’t figure out why. He sat alone on a hilltop, watching the sun set over the village. Curity came to check on him and asked what was wrong. Inse didn’t know how to explain his feelings, but Curity knew just what to do. She taught Inse the first transformation: to ignore the voice of insecurity and focus on the good things in life.
As they sat there watching the sunset, Curity pointed out all the beautiful colors in the sky, the way the clouds looked like fluffy pillows, and the peacefulness of the village. Slowly, Inse’s mood started to lift, and he began to feel a little better.
Over the next few days, Curity taught Inse more about managing his emotions. She showed him how to use the second transformation: to find inspiration in his feelings. When Inse was scared of the dark, Curity taught him to imagine all the amazing things that could be hiding in the shadows. When Inse was angry, she taught him to channel that energy into something productive, like drawing or writing.
But even with all these tools, Inse still struggled to manage his emotions at times. One day, he got into a fight with a friend at school and couldn’t calm down. That’s when Curity taught him the third transformation: to listen to the voice of security and use his inner confidence to make good choices.
Inse took a deep breath and remembered all the good things about himself – that he was a good friend, a great artist, and a caring brother. With that confidence, he was able to apologize to his friend and find a way to make things right.
As Inse continued to practice the five transformations, he learned that managing emotions was a lifelong journey. Sometimes he would feel sad or angry or scared, but he knew that he had the tools to handle those emotions and come out stronger on the other side. And with each passing day, Inse and Curity grew closer as they practiced the fifth transformation: to befriend both the voice of insecurity and the voice of security, and to live in harmony with all their emotions.
