As you all know, kids are commonly afraid of stuff. That’s the same with me.I’m afraid of four things, #1 Poppy Playtime. #2 Five Nights At Freddy’s. #3 Granny, (No, i’m not talking about you grandma.) And, #4 Goosebumps. I’ve been struggling with #1 and #2 for a while and I’ve never really had a way of dealing with them. Until now.
The day before I posted this blog… I was in the bathroom, (bathroom noises) when it hit me. ⚡⚡⚡I randomly whipped out a fake game console, (still on the toilet.) and got my GAME FACE on. (Just for the record, I had no idea why I was doing this at the time.) “Here we go.” I used my imagination to picture a standard, taking turns battle video game. I’ll try to explain how this game works.
So, basically you chose something you’re scared of. (Do not pick your worst fear. (That comes later.)) And picture an area with 4 levels were you will battle this fear. Each level comes with 3 waves of what you’re scared of. Each enemy will have HP (health). Your job is to remove that HP, therefore removing that fear. (Try and give your fear low HP, 100, and yourself high HP, 250.) Make up attack names and the damage they do. ex. Golden Hammer, 50, Jeratic Beatdown, 80, Basic Punch, 10, etc.
Wave 1 and 2 are standard waves and include minions of your fear (1-3 at most). Every wave 3 has 1 enemy, the boss. Every boss has bigger HP than a normal enemy. Level 4 has 3 waves as usual BBUUTT they are way harder.
And finally, at level 4, wave 3 is the FINAL BOSS. This BOSS is your fear leader. He/She should have larger HP than usual. When I defeated my first FINAL BOSS, (Huggy Wuggy,#1.) I forgot him. He was just gone. I have never had problems with him since then.
There are many different ways to handle your fears these days and you can chose one of those, or you can chose my tactic. Fear is a thing in this world currently, but soon it will be gone.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NIV
