Other Beings Walking With Slender Man: Slender Man Sighting Question From Zulaikha

Picture of Slende Man sighting in woods

“I 100% believe in slenderman. I have seen him roaming in the woods. But the weird thing was that there was 2 more ppl

well girls.1 was young but scary the other looked like granny from that horror game.

PLZ let me know what this is I am seeing NEVER GO IN THE WOODS ALONE”

-question left by reader Zulaikha on the ‘Is Slender Man Real?’ story

Hi Zulaikha,

I decided to answer this in a post because I think other people might be having the same kind of problems as you are with Slender Man.

Okay so first off Slender Man is something that’s a projection of a person’s mind. And when you “see” Slender Man it is because the fears in your mind are making the things you see in the world look like him.

A deep shadow in the road outside your house? Suddenly you see the tall form of Slender Man standing there, watching you. Hazy movement far off in the woods? Slender Man is walking at a distance, stalking.

This is because of how the character of Slender Man is written and how the stories are set up, it sticks in your mind and can change to fit any situation if you focus on it.

Slender Man sighting questionSo I think that when you see these other beings, the scary girl and the horror game granny, walking along with Slender Man then you are seeing beings that have meaning in your mind personally. Since they are walking with Slender Man then they are probably occupying the same fear section in your mind as Slender Man.

The danger of “seeing” Slender Man in real life is that the paranoia about him can quickly snowball into a huge problem. Soon you are seeing him everywhere, and for you specifically the problem might be worse because you might start seeing the scary girl and the horror game granny as well.

I would recommend that you make a point of focusing on things that bring out positive images in your mind. Maybe there is a sport that you can really get into or a kind of music that lifts your spirits and puts you in a positive frame of mind. Seek out stories that deal with adventure and lose yourself in those story worlds.

You are right about one thing though, you shouldn’t go into the woods alone. Since it is a fearful thing for you if you are in the woods alone it’s a lot easier to get paranoid and start “seeing” Slender Man and his companions. Go into the woods only with friends or just stay home and read some adventure stories.

Anyway, hope this helps! If you have more questions or comments just write them in the comment section below and I’ll answer.

xo,
Anita

Slender Man Staring Contest: Shoutout This Week To Destiny

Slender Man Scary Story HalloweenThe shoutout this week is to a reader named Destiny, who wrote in about an encounter with Slender Man:

Dear Anita wirawan,

I recently read your story and It got me thinking if slender man is really real. Well, I was at my grandma’s house and I looked out the window and actually saw him! I found myself staring at him,and he stared back! It was like a staring contest between the both of us!

I said hi to him then blinked. He was gone.

Thanks for your email Destiny. Well I gotta say you are braver than I am, if I ever saw anything like Slender Man I wouldn’t stick around for a staring contest X).

That is a danger of Slender Man stories though, that after reading the stories you’ll start to see Slender Man type stuff in your life at least for a while.
