Once upon a time, in a cozy house with a big yard, lived a boy named Inse and his older sister, Curity. Inse had a fluffy white bunny named Fluffy, whom he loved dearly. He would play with Fluffy every day and tell him all his secrets. Fluffy was Inse’s best friend.
One day, Inse came home from school, and his mom told him that Fluffy had passed away. Inse was devastated. He didn’t know what to do without his best friend. He ran to his room and cried himself to sleep.
Inse’s sister, Curity, saw how sad he was and decided to help him. She sat next to him and gently said, “Inse, I know you miss Fluffy. But remember, he loved you, and you loved him. He will always be in your heart.”
Inse looked up at her and asked, “How can I feel better?”
Curityreplied, “Let’s use the five transformations. First, we will ignore the voice of insecurity that tells us we are alone. Then we will use that voice as inspiration to remember the good times we had with Fluffy. Next, we will let the voice of security guide us to focus on the positive, like how much Fluffy loved you. Then, we will take action by giving Fluffy a proper goodbye, like planting flowers in his memory. Finally, we will befriend both voices and remember that even though Fluffy is gone, we will always have his memory.”
Inse thought about what his sister said, and it made him feel a little better. They went outside, and Curity helped Inse plant flowers in Fluffy’s memory. They talked about all the fun times they had with Fluffy and how much he loved to play in the yard.
As they walked back inside, Inse felt a sense of peace. He knew Fluffy was gone, but he also knew he would always have his memory. He hugged his sister and said, “Thank you for helping me feel better, Curity.”
Curityreplied, “Anytime, Inse. That’s what family is for.”
And with that, they went to bed, Inse feeling a little better and with a newfound understanding of the five transformations.
