My parents said I could be anything I wanted to be, so I said i wanted to be an octopus. My parents said that means you can choose your job, not species. I then started screaming "But mommy, i want to become an octopus!" and my mom would say "No you can't, changing your species is not possible" and we argued about that alot. hehehehe

When I was 7 or 8 my mom told me that you could be anything you want to be. I believed she meant literally enything, so i wanted to become a meerkat when i grow up. When the teacher would tell me on career day what i want to be, i would say "a meerkat!". I got disappointed when i never saw a real meerkat on career day, but it was fun.

I remember at a very young age, realising that I was significantly more intelligent than children of my own age, and far more empathic, meaning I would never truly fit in as we weren't on the same level.

I used to believe (And still do) that I was the only "Real" Person and that everyone else was just some kind of robot. I never care about others feeling because of how boring and "Unreal" other people around me were. I don't think I will stop believing this until I meet a "Real" person like me.

Once, when I took a shower, I saw that the water "Coming out" of my fingertips.

I was just like: "I'm magical."

So I saw an episode of "H2O,Just add water," and saw how they could control water. I was convinced for so long that I was some mermaid magic person.

While I acknowledged others' existence, I used to think I was the only person to actually think and perceive the world around me.

When I was a kid, I used to think something like "what if I'm actually not where I think I am?" Like if I was in my room changing clothes, I thought what if I'm actually in my classroom and all my classmates can see me changing? Then I would get a little paranoid.

But then I figured it probably wasn't true since I didn't see anyone else changing clothes in random places.

I used to believe, when I was like 6 or 7 years old, that I had Matilda's powers (that children's comedy). She could move with her eyes things like glasses, balls, and even people, so I wanted to do that.
I remember I would strongly look at some objects like toys and stuff like that but I never achieved anything moved a little, so I was really sad for like... two days and then everything returned to normality.

A long time ago I picked up a strange battery at recess, and I belived that this battery gave me the power to control the wind, so I tried to teach the dry leafs and plastic bags to dance in the wind, and to teach feathers to fly!

When i was a kid, i used to believe it was possible to spy someone through their own eyes and ears and that someone was spying on me that way. I would try not to look at my genitals while going to the bathroom and try to act cool when alone out of fear they would think i'm wierd.

My brother and I used to believe we had magic powers, and so we would train in secret. When I discovered this, I ran to tell my mom, but my brother stopped me, "They're SECRET magic powers, remember?"

I used to believe that the entire world around me was there because of me and that everyone knew about me and went about their lives somehow related to my existance, like their lives all had a purpose but, ultimately, that purpose was me. I think I was around 8 years old at the time.

I used to believe that smoke coming out from some stove or wherever contains genie so if you can contain it in a bottle and cover it you can capture genie so I once did that and many times I used to unlock it and watch it if it's there or not.
