When I was a kid, I used to believe that if I jumped in the gymnasium, my reflection would fall to the ceiling (reflection) below me. I thought that if I jumped, and lost my reflection I would die!

I was about 6 years old, when I watched a film where two children are wandering around in the woods. At t one point the boy says to the girl 'each step that we take is one less step of our lives'- that phrase had a long lasting impact on me-- for a long time after that I took pains to ensure that my strides were as large as possible when walking.

When my uncle died, my mom told me that we should keep him in our thoughts and prayers; that now, he could watch over us, all the time. I was so scared that he could see me when I took a shower or went to the bathroom.

When my brother was little, our grandparents died in a car crash, and he was maybe 3. We all explained that they were up in heaven with God and the angels. He started to wave at airplanes after that, and we finally found out he thought our grandparents were riding on airplanes, that's wat happened when you died.

I remember as a kid when I would go visit family in MO and I would always hang out with my cousin. Well, the area had a lot of grave sites, and we got it into our heads that if we held our breath as we passed by the cemitaries the gohsts wouldn't fallow us and haunt us. Needless to say I don't believe it anymore, but I still find myself holding my breath.

My mother got off the phone with the news that a distant family member had passed away. And I asked my mother what happens to people when they die. She replied that they stop moving and an image appeared in my head of an old man falling off a chair and turning to stone... dead. So, for quite a while, I believed that when people died, they turned to stone.

My brother and I thought that you burped before you died, so whenever we played dead we'd let out a huge belch and drop to the ground.

When I was very young I was told that dying could happen to anyone at anytime. I was from then on terrified that I would suddenly and without reason die violently (think spontaneous combustion). It wasn't till I was older that I realized what was meant by that statement.
