in fourth grade...
I honestly, seriously believed that I could fly.
I cannot jump very high.
I cannot run fast.
But I thought I could leap from a slope as it began to go down and start flying; and that if I trained hard enough, I could fly myself to the moon.
When I was little, around 6 or 7, my friend Hannah and I were convinced we had these amazing superpowers. Her's was seeing the future and mine, slightly less cool, was the power to wake people up. Amazing, I know. I thought this because whenever I'd see my older brother asleep on the couch, I'd go stand over to him and just stare at him for a long time and miraculously, he woke up! And obviously be freaked out his weird little sister was just staring at him.
i used to believe my mom could read my mind, it was pretty scary it made try not to think, also i thought my parents were aliens in human disguises and that they adopted me, too much tv!
when i was a kid i was convinced i was different from everyone else, after seeing the movie D.A.R.Y.L. I was convinced I was a robot, but after a while i decided i wasn' t, so it must be something else, then i realised (since I was raised a christian) that i must be the third coming of Christ (I also believed that a second Christ had existed around the year 1000), until I was about 12 when the Angel Gabriel didn't come and tell me my mission. I am now an atheist.
I used to have a belief that everyone had a worm in their brain that was controlling their body and no one was aware of it except for me.
I also used to believe that everyone else in the world was a robot. It is interesting to read others' comments as to why children sometimes believe this. Isolation and self-centeredness seem to be the most common reasons. I was probably a little of both.
Another thing I used to believe was that the fermata symbol in my elementary music songbooks was really a camera eye that was spying on me. I used to frown and make faces at it. So I was pretty paranoid as well!
Whenever i was naughty, my mom would say i wasn't allowed to have my ice-cream or dessert after dinner that night. i would become so distraught that i would tell her i was going to run away, and then i would run up to my room and write her a note saying i wasn't ever coming back, and then just go hide in our little cupboard under the stairs. After years of experience, my mom now knows exactly where to find me. XD
I used to think that i was asleep and when i died i would wake up with all my memories of the dream intact as a baby chiild. Then i would grow up for real exactly as i had in the dream, but because i knew what would happen i could prevent all the bad stuff ad live the perfect life!
I guess it would explain the fact that i keep remembering dreams, and telling ym sister about them, when i haven't. And the fact that really random dreams (Like my friend asking me if i'd ever tried fried carrot) came true months after i'd had them.
I still do slightly believe this. I'm not sure if this is my real life or just a dream, but i'm sure i'll figure it out eventually! i thought this happened to everyone. I have no idea why.
when i played pretend i always wanted to be the animal. i didnt want to b a person cause their boring lol
i used to belive i was a mew mew if u heard of the progam its on pop girl and its wierd i tried to fly i ended up in crutches and my m8 in school we Primary 6
tried it on stage she said
she belived she could fly xd she nearly broke her kneck yay i hate her anyways die codie die lol
i used to believe that if u bitched about someone, they'd always find out. i also thought that god would tell someone if u'd thought mean things about them...
i always was a wierd child
Me and my brother used to share a room, and I used to think that the characters or people in our posters on the wall were looking at me, and only me. I'd tell him that their eyes were following me around, and he'd say "No they're looking at me!" and I said "They're looking at me, you can tell by the look in their eyes." and he believed me, as did I! Haha.
in the day you were allowed to keep your dummy but at night a man called mr moonie came and took your dummy to children in austrailia, who needed it because it was their night time
(This isn't about fairies, but they didn't have a section for mine.) When I was really young, like 7 or something I would swim at this public pool where my grandparents lived. One time at the pool I met a girl, and we hung out and talked for awhile, and found out that we had something in common: we both believed we were mermaids that hadn't grown their tails yet. We would look under water at our legs and lower bellies and mistook the tiny bubbles that appeared colorful in the sunlight, for scales. lol.
at my local park ( taken down now ) there used to be a HUGE slide and this girl at the park told me ( I was like 5 and she was like maybe 8 ) that if I go down the HUGE slide, that I would be in another world! I did and when I did my dad had a different color shirt on, but he tried to tell me he got a stain and went back to get another shirt but I didnt believe him!
When I was a child, I used to believe that I could actually fly. At night I would dream that I was flying. My sisters always told me that I couldn't but it would lead to a pretty heated argument. The things I remember now from back then still seem pretty real. So could I really fly??
when i was little i would always wake up to find trash on my desk i had accidently left the night before, only i wouldn't remember that. so i used to believe god sent me little gifts in the morning, so i would keep the pieces of trash in a special place so i could keep them forever.
when i was little i used to tuly believe my mom had eyes in the back of her head because she always seemed to catch me when i did something bad.
my grandpa could sound like donald duck so naturally i thought donald duck was stuck in his throat. i went to school and told my friends that donald duck wouldnt be on tv anymore cuz he was stuck in my grandpas throat. they all laughed at me. =[
when i was little me and my two best friends used to believe we were the power puff girls. (i was bubbles) we actually cupped our hands around our eyes and claimed we saw blue light from our lazer beams. haha.
