What Would Your Boggart Be?
Halloween is a time when people take the opportunity to scare and be scared by others. However, being scared isn’t always so much fun. Most often it’s downright, well, terrifying. Now who here has read any of the Harry Potter books? Come on, raise your hands. Wow, so many of you! Then you guys probably know all about Boggarts. But if you don’t, here are a few handy tips. Boggarts are fictional creatures who prey on people’s fears in Harry Potter and reflect our deepest fears back to us. No one knows exactly what they look like because they only appear to the person it is confronted with as a manifestation of their fear. Which, when you think about it, is pretty darn scary!
Now, I know it sucks to be scared, but don’t worry! This means you’re human (phew, that may be a relief to some of you)! Everyone gets scared, it’s just part of going through life. The trick is to not let it take over your life so that you start to live under your bed for fear of leaving your house.
There are lots of ways to conquer your fears, like facing them head on or talking about them with your friends and family.
