“We are the heroes of our own stories, our own Truth Queens and Kings, our Story Bugs can’t stop us from being who we were created to be.”
This is the story of Katie Not-Afraidy, a little girl with big worries. In this story, Katie explains the difference between normal, (and even helpful) worries, and the kind of worries that she experiences. Katie’s type of worries creep into her mind and manifest physically in ways that make her feel uncomfortable and sometimes isolated. Katie refers to these worries as Story Bugs, because they fill her head with harmful lies. Through Katie’s journey, however, she learns that she has a wise Truth Queen within. When she learns how to tune into the Truth, she is able to conquer her anxiety. Katie reminds us that not all heroes wear capes. Some heroes exist simply to remind us that we’re not alone.
