Unhappy I am so scared! - May 27th 2019, 09:00 PM

So my friend was telling me about this girl named Momo who will appear on your computer screen and tell you to do bad things. I looked her up, and I am really scared of her now! All the sources say she is fake, but I'm still really scared!

Jenna, this is a bad Internet hoax intended to scare young boys and girls. There have been many, many, many hoaxes intended to frighten the living [beep] out of people probably since the beginning of human storytelling thousands of years ago.

I remember myself having been scared like this when I was around your age with those end-of-the-world Doomsday predictions. It was also around the time such movies like Deep Impact and Armageddon had come out, so all that hype was pretty huge then.

But it's more than two decades later and the Earth is still here, right?

Don't let people freak you out like that. I don't even know how or where it begins, but it's all a load of doo-doo.

Fear is a difficult emotion to keep in check at times, even when we know that something is fake, it can be hard to shake off that scared feeling.

I have heard of Momo and she does look scary. But she won't randomly pop up anywhere, and if she did, you can always close/turn off whatever you are doing for a little while. You don't have to do anything that Momo says or anything that you might've read about, or anything that your friends might say. Try to remind yourself of this. You are in control here and when you feel more in control, you may feel less scared.

Sometimes when we have seen something scary looking, it might stay in our minds for a while. Do you have things you enjoy that you can do to take your mind off it?

Yeah, it's just a stupid internet story. It's in no way real, you have nothing to be afraid of.


The risk I took was calculated, but boy, am I bad at math.
