Back in university, my friend told me that when you see a white butterfly, it's the person's soul coming back to reassure loved ones... and every time I've lost someone, I've always seen a white butterfly come and fly about me... so I hold them i reverence....

One day me and my grandma passed by a cemetary and i asked her what it was and she said it was where they buried dead peoples bodies. So after that i thought that they buried the bodies and the family kept the head!
I used to think and believe that dead people if not properly buried in a well ventillated grave,they would suffocate and die over and over again with great suffering and pain.Consequently I was afraid even of thinking that someone who died would be buried.I preferred for them to be left out somewhere to decompose in the open.
I used to believe that you could only ever die on your birthday.
I used to believe that you had to be an adult in order to die, because of all the times on tv and movies when characters said "I'm too young to die."
I believed one of the greatest dangers you could face was quick sand. I was scared to death of it.
I used to belive that when an animal or a person passed away that they turned into a cloud in the sky and floated away to heaven.
When my Nana died I asked my Mum where does she go when she is dead. My Mum advised that she turns to "dust". It was my job at the time to do the dusting and I refused to do it as I didn't want to "dust" my Nana off the furniture etc.
I used to believe that if you walked through a graveyard at night then you would be friends with all the dead people because you gave up your sleeping time to come and say hello to them! There was an old wrecked graveyard just up the road from my old house and because the gates were broken I used to leave my house at night to go and be nice to the dead people. Then I used to tell everybody that I was friends with dead people!
my mum called my dads grave a daddys garden,i thought that when you went in i would see my dad i was about 3. sad.
I used to not know what autopsy ment, so I would get one of my teddy bears, rip their arm off, and perform a autopsy on it. Then my mom told me it was for dead bodys to see how they died.
I used to believe that when people died their eyes turned into X's, like on the cartoons. Oh and I thought your tongue hung out when you died so every time I played dead I had my tongue out... lol
I used to believe that your shoelaces could get caught in an escalator and you would get horrifically mauled as you got dragged into the tiny space between the floor and the stair.
When I was little I use to believe that if a person was fired from their job they were litteraly lit on fire and killed.
I used to believe that babies where really old people that had 'turned young again' and that graveyards where only there for decoration. I believed this until my dad gave my sister, brother and me 'the talk'
As an artist, i used to believe that my drawings were visions of my past life.(i had a good past life)
I used to think that every star in the night sky repersent one of my previous friends from the past. Everytime i looked @ them, i would hum a melody and the stars would start to shine brighter. I still like to hum and watch the stars because of the comfort it brings.
When I was little I did not want to go to the bathroom at night because I thought that the dude from Scream was going to show up in the window and kill me! I still get freaked out sometimes!
iused to belive that if you die when you get buirred worms would come up and eat your skin then you are a skelotin
