Every time Sarah gets scared at night and the lights are out, she starts to imagine things, things that she couldn’t possible imaging if the lights were on.
So, night time scared her and she always had to hide under her blanket whenever she was left alone in her room at night.
Until one day, she had just woken up in the middle of the night and everywhere was dark and she had to pee but she was too scared to go.
After trying to hold it and force herself back to bed unsuccessfully, she decided to brave it up and dispel her fears.
As she got off the bed, she made up her mind that it was all in her head and there were no monsters under her bed or in the closet or anywhere else.
Suddenly, as she walked all the scary imaginations faded away and she then realized that what she sees in her head can greatly affect how she sees the world.
She made it to the bathroom and back without a scary thought and that was the day she stopped being afraid of the dark.
