I used to think that every mirror, window, and every other reflective surface in the world was rigged so that I saw myself differently than anyone else. I can only assume that this would have been done to spare myself the agony of knowing how funny-looking I really - secretly - was.
A few years ago I was really into ghosts and things until one night my friend came over. We were telling ghost stories and he told me the one about Bloody Marry. I got really freaked out and now when the power goes out im still afrain to go to the bathroom thinking she will jump out and kill me.
When I was little I was scared to look in the mirror, my older cousin had told me that Barney was watching me on the other side. And for the longest time even after finding out that Barney really wasn't there I still remembered him when I looked into a mirror
Years ago i used to look into this miror and focus on the pupils of my eyes, somehow i got it in my head that if you looked deeply into your pupil in a miror you could see yourself as a grown-up walking around inside.
When I was little I didn't understand how I could move my head in the mirror but my eyes would stay in the same place (looking at the mirror)
My mom told me that I needed more sleep!
i used to belive that in mirrors, there was a person, and when you stood in front of the mirror, they quickly drew you. i belived this until aroud the age of 7
when i was about 6 - 7, i beleived that if you turned off the light and said *candyman* 5 times. then the candyman would jump out of the mirror and give you a poisened candy cane. and if you ate it, when you went to sleep, you would dream that the candyman would scratch you with big freddy creuger nails, and you would wake up with the scratches. then after a few weeks of having the candyman dreams, candyman would kill you.
(this was origionally a scary story told to me by a baby sitter) friends used to scare my by locking me in the bathroom with the lightswitch outside and telling me that i had to say it before they let me out. because i was afraid of the dark at the time, i said it. i was so scared.
I read a funny comic about a nerd boy and a talking cat with loads of magic machines. In one chapter the boy fell in love with a popular girl. He went and visit her but she wasn't there, so he stayed in her room and waited and while waiting he used a magic cloth to wipe the mirror in the room, and what happens is the magic cloth makes the mirror show the reflection of people who used the mirror before and you can see what they did, like looking at themselves. The boy saw the girl naked in the mirror. I still think if I look at myself naked in the mirror someone else would wipe it with the magic cloth and see me naked and I feel scared whenever I get change in front of a mirror.
For as long as I can remember I've thought that there are people watching from behind fitting room / public bathroom mirrors. Someone told me this ridiculous trick to see if it's a "real mirror" or not... and even though I know it's preposterous, I still do the mirror check every time I'm in a room with a mirror. I'm 26!
When I was a child, before I went to bed every night I would make sure my hand held mirror was turned mirror side down because I thought it would lose it's reflexion if exposed and not being used for that long a period of time.
I used to think that there was a whole other world behind the mirror that was just like ours, only way more exiciting. Oh, and my reflection was my twin.
I used to believe that if you stared into a mirror for too long, the devil would start staring back at you! My mom told me this as I was quite a vain child and spent hours gazing into the mirror! Now, I still don't pause too long, you can never be too careful!
i thought that bathroom mirrors were cameras and that perverted people were watching my every move so i would go to the bathroom in really elaborate ways to maintains my privacy. what further enhanced that believe was that my uncle turned out to be a child molester and i thought that meant he spyed on kids through mirrors because no one told me what really happened.
When I was younger I coulnt look at mirrors.I got confused and thought that there were two of me,and I didnt know which one was the real me.
when i was little 4 or 5 i believed that when you were looking in a mirror if you turned round fast enough you could see your reflection still turning what makes it worse i stood for ages trying it
One of my friends who used to live in Japan told me a story ( I was 14 then, I think ) about monsters called "Kyoma Demons" that live in mirrors and look just like you, but if you turn your back they show their true form and emerge from the mirror to grab you and pull you into an alternate universe, and you would be trapped in the mirror while they lived your life. I still find it hard to go to the bathroom without a wrench, hammer, or some other blunt object to defend myself.
i used to believe that my reflection was my mother when she was little, and when she told me it wasn't, i thought i was adopted!
i used to think that if you looked into a mirror at night a ghost would come out and kill you and pull you into someone else's mirror to kill them
If you look at the mirror in a bathroom at midnight, you can see what your boy friend looks like. So, I waited until midnight in the bathroom. The next morning, I was found on the bathroom floor!
Apparently when I was younger I didn't cotton on for quite a long time that the mirror reflected things, so I used to think that there was someone else in the mirror whenever I looked in it. No matter how often people would tell me it was me, I wouldn't believe them. Interestingly, although I am now in my 20s I often look at my reflection and it doesn't seem like me.
