FEAR OF GHOSTS
Once upon a time, a boy used to live alone with his mother. There was a room, but it was always locked and nobody ever entered there.
A day, with a fear that her son could enter the room and make some trick, the mother resolved to tell him some story
– Son, You can never enter that room.
– But mom, why?
– Because there is a ghost locked in this room. If you open that door and enter, it can show and walks around you.
The boy was terrified about the warning. He trusted in her and didn’t open the door.
As the time gone by, the boy thought of the locked ghost every time. He became afraid for many nights, thinking that it could get away and scare him.
He had nightmares with it. When he couldn’t sleep, he waited for its attack. This repeated for a long time, months and years. He didn’t open that door, but he felt it was with him.
Then, when he was older, he was tired with that situation. He had courage and decided to see that ghost.
– It is better to see him, this way I would know with who I am treating.
He opened the door of his bedroom and walked throw the passage felling great fear. Finally, he stayed in front of that locked door. Opened… it wasn’t lock! When it opened, he saw an empty room. He looked in everywhere and didn’t find any sign of the ghost.
Since that day, he never had another nightmare with the ghost.
Moral of the Story: Face your fear, because when you do that, the “ghost” will leave you alone.
