Just a PSA: The Bogeyman doesn’t exist.
The Bogeyman is a weapon, a story we tell to scare people, particularly children, into compliance.
It’s true. Our fears will never completely go away. But when we flip the lights on, we will see, that the Bogeyman was just a figment of our imagination. Running amuck without a leash.
Sure, it’s possible that your worst fears will come to fruition. But it’s also not likely either.
We fear what we can’t imagine. A world of uncertainty scares us to be compliant. To follow the simple set of instructions for unremarkable outcomes. Or we can embrace the alternative. Shun the Bogeyman.
