Inse and Curity: Overcoming Disappointment

Share Adventure

Inse and Curity were walking through the park on a beautiful sunny day. Inse was feeling a bit down because he didn’t make the basketball team. “I can’t believe I didn’t make the team,” he said. “I practiced so hard.”

Curity put her arm around Inse and said, “I know it’s disappointing, but it’s not the end of the world. Let’s use the five transformations to help you deal with this.”

Inse looked at Curity with a confused expression. “What are the five transformations?” he asked.

Curity smiled and said, “They’re steps that help us deal with our emotions and make positive decisions. The first step is to ignore the voice of insecurity. The second is to use it as amusement and inspiration. The third is to listen to the voice of security. The fourth is to take action based on what you’ve learned. And the fifth is to befriend the two inner voices.”

Inse listened intently and said, “Okay, let’s try it.”

They walked to a bench in the shade and Curity asked Inse, “What did the voice of insecurity tell you about not making the team?”

Inse thought for a moment and said, “It told me that I’m not good enough and that I’ll never be good at basketball.”

Curity nodded and said, “Now use that as amusement and inspiration. What can you learn from this?”

Inse thought again and said, “I can learn that I need to work harder and practice more. I can also learn that it’s okay to fail sometimes.”

Curity smiled and said, “Exactly. Now let’s listen to the voice of security. What positive things can you think of?”

Inse thought and said, “I’m good at math and science. I have great friends and family who love me. And I can still try out for other sports teams.”

Curity nodded and said, “That’s right. Now let’s take action. What can you do to improve your basketball skills?”

Inse thought for a moment and said, “I can practice every day after school. I can watch YouTube videos to learn new skills. And I can ask the coach for tips.”

Curity smiled and said, “Perfect. Now let’s befriend the two inner voices. They both have a purpose and can help you in different ways.”

Inse smiled and said, “I understand now. Thanks, Curity.”

As they walked home, Inse felt better about not making the basketball team. He knew he had a plan to improve and try out for other teams. He also realized that failure was just a part of life and that he could overcome it with resilience and perseverance.

From that day on, Inse and Curity used the five transformations to deal with their emotions and make positive decisions. They even created a chart to remind them of the steps.

The chart became so popular with their friends at school that they started calling it the “Inse and Curity Chart.” It helped many kids deal with disappointment, fear, and anxiety.

Inse and Curity were proud to have helped their friends and to have overcome disappointment themselves. They knew that they could handle anything with the help of the five transformations.

As they walked into their house, Inse turned to Curity and said, “Thanks for helping me today. I couldn’t have done it without you.”

Curity smiled and said, “That’s what friends are for.”

And with that, they went inside, ready to face whatever challenges came their way.

The End.
