It's Okay Not to Be Okay

The Boy Who Fed on Nightmare

A boy woke up from another awful nightmare. He wanted to erase Bad memories from the past from his head that replayed in his dreams every night and cursed him nonstop. The boy was afraid of falling asleep.

So one day, he went to the witch and begged: ‘Please get me rid of all my bad memories so that I won’t have a nightmare again. I will do anything you want.’

As the years went by, the boy became an adult. He did not have any nightmares but still, he was not able to be happy.

 One night in a blood moon, the witch finally came to take what he had promised in return for granting the boy’s wish. He yelled at her with so much bitterness: ‘All my bad memories are gone. But why I can’t become happy?’

Then she took his soul and said to him:

Hurtful, painful memories.
Memories of deep regrets.
Memories of hurting others and being hurt.
Memories of being abandoned’.

Only those people with such memories buried in their hearts become stronger, more passionate, and emotionally flexible. And only those can attain happiness.

So don’t forget any of it. Remember it all and overcome it. If you don’t overcome it, you’ll always be a kid whose soul never grows”.

The Zombie Kid

In a small village, a little boy was born. He had pale skin and big eyes. As the child grew, his mother eventually realized, this child had no emotion at all and was a zombie with an uncontrollable appetite. So the mother kept the child in the basement to avoid the neighbor’s eyes.

Every night, she stole livestock from other houses and secretly fed and raised the child.
One day it was a chicken. Another day it was a pig.

After many years of living like that, a plague broke out in the village. It killed all remaining livestock and a large number of people died. Those who managed to live, all left the village.
The mother who could not leave her child behind, had to resort to chopping off her legs, and then one of her arms, to feed the crying child. After giving everything to her child, the mom who only had her torso left hugged her child for one last time and gave him the rest of her body.

The child hugged the mother who only had her torso left and spoke for the first time.
‘Mom you are so warm’

The reality of Fairy Tales

A fairy tale is a cruel fantasy that illustrates the brutality and violence of these worlds in a paradoxical manner.

For e.g.:
Heungbu and Nolbu teaches us that Heungbu was poor because he wasn’t the eldest son. It criticizes the primogeniture customs that allowed the eldest sons to inherit everything.

The Ugly Duckling shows that raising someone else’s child is unrewarding, so just look after your own.

The lesson we take from The Little Mermaid is that karma will bite you hard if you covet an engaged man.

King Donkey Ears convey that talk behind people’s backs to relieve your stress.
A fairy tale isn’t a hallucination that gives us hopes and dreams. It’s a stimulant that makes us face reality. So, read lots of fairy tales and wake up from your dreams.

Don’t look up at the stars in the beautiful night sky. Look down at your feet that are stuck in a filthy sewer. The moment you realize that and accept your reality, you’ll be happy.
