When it comes to explaining our real emotions, we all have a hard time to do so, especially for kids. storybooth is a storyteling platform that helps kids from all over the world to tell their stories in their own words and voices. It’s an award-winning animated storytelling platform that turns real stories into animation videos and publishes them on their YouTube channel, website and on their mobile app.
You’re not alone. Like everybody else you have right to have feelings as well as expressing them the way you feel comfortable with. And the real goal with storybooth is to make kids—or anybody else—feel that they’re not alone with their feelings. By doing this, kids understand that they’re not alone in the challenges and experiences they will get to experience along the way of adulting process. The team behind the idea of this storytelling platform wants to empower kids. Each day, hundreds of thousands of kids use storybooth, inspire and empower each other. They also help each other to come out of hiding, sharing their truths, and bringing light to the world—which inspires them to be themselves and not to care what others opinion about them.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t offer same opportunities to everybody. Like we all have different fingerprints, we also have different destinies to live and see. Like the Buddhists say; any time we suffer misfortune, two arrows fly our way. The first arrow, the pain, is the actual bad event. The second arrow, the suffering, is our reaction to the bad event, the way we chose to respond emotionally. The first arrow often is unavoidable. The second arrow often is self-inflicted. As in most events in life, avoiding the second arrow requires mature emotional awareness. This is where storybooth comes in to help kids, avoiding the second arrow to take place in life. At storybooth, kids can be real with their stories. They are free to be bold and brave—revealing their secrets, embarrassing moments, strengths and flaws, tragedies and triumphs.
Many people still believe that kids are like some sort of rubber people that all the troubles bounce off and nothing bothers them long term. storybooth was launched in the spring of 2016 and helped over 35,000 kids to tell and share their stories. The animated stories have been watched for about over 65 million times by young people to help them understand each others feeling. Since we strongly believe that sharing is caring, this storytelling platform can carry all of us to a better future—where we understand each other better and create a strong empathy bridge one to another.
Telling and sharing your stories with storybooth will help your life to become simpler and lighter—when you start sharing more often with the people who will understand you. You’ll have more inner stability and less self-sabotage. When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation, approval, and attention from other people. You become less needy and find an inner stability even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times.
