Is this not the best picture you’ve seen? (At least, lately?)
I came across it on Facebook by chance; it’s by Begemott and it’s called “Sweet Halloween Dreams”.
But, it just says it all in terms of the function of a teddy bear, doesn’t it? Or, maybe, Teddy could be a representation of your bit of courage standing up to your fears in general. Or David and Goliath….or some other metaphor…
Does anyone have stories to share about their teddy bears or childhood fears of the dark? I never had a toy to sleep with, but I did endow my duvet with powers of protection.
