i'm differentShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was younger i'ld say 7 or 8 my mom got me into goosebumps and stephen king (she love his stuff) and so I was convenced that when i either turned 10, 13, or 16 some i would have some magical gift or turn into a vampire or mermaid or something. When each birthday passed I was disappointed. Yes even my 16th, I still had a little hope left that something cool like that would happen.
When I was 10, I half believed that on my 11th birthday I was going to get an acceptance letter from Hogwarts. When it didn't come, I told myself there had been a mix-up and I would get my letter a year late.
When I was 4 or 5 I used to beleive that I was damageproof and that in no way I can get hurt. I thought so till I cut my finger the first time.
From around the age of 6, until around age 8 or 9, I believed I could fly and often could not remember the walk to school, but instead seemed to have images of looking down on the route between home and school in my head.
I don't think I told anyone about this until I was in my mid twenties. I'm now over fifty and still unsure if this was purely that I was an imaginative child or whether (before I became aware of what we call scientific fact) I actually could fly.
The other odd thing I remember as a child was seeing the future - like the time that I saw an accident we had in a blue van shortly before my dad borrowed a blue van for a trip to my granny's and we landed in a ditch. I didn't say anything beforehand but blurted out something about it just after the accident - my mum asked me angrily why I didn't say anything before - so I guess she sometimes knew things too.
I have also sometimes been aware of events happening elsewhere as they happened. This has usually been distressing - In my mid twenties (for example) I knew when a close friend's sister had been killed in an accident.
My friend was one of six of us who shared a house and I was in some confusion for the three or four hours or so between the accident and the phone call from my friend's mum - what the hell could I do, and what if I was wrong? I think I said something like "have you rung your mum recently?"
Once my friend's mum rang I was able to spring into action and give her emotional support, help her pack etc.
My sister also knew things in advance or what was happening elswhere at the time. She sometimes announced that Mr so and so had just died, or whatever, at around the time it happened, before anyone could possibly know. However, my sister could not be disabused of some absolutely daft ideas, like earwigs eating your brain - so maybe my idea about flying as a child is equally ridiculous and we have all been touched by madness!
It's only in the last few years that my 'extra sensory perception' about future events and events elsewhere has diminshed somewhat and I (thankfully) don't see so much outside of my 'real' life.
I remember that when the show on Adult Swim, Full Metal Alchemist, first aired...I believed that I could be an alchemist. I would go outside, draw transmutation circles with chalk, and try. I clapped over and over but nothing ever worked...I was so disappointed that I went on the internet and reasearced everything. I also tried to bring a dead lizard back to life.
For a long time I drove my mom nuts because I didn't want to get rid of any of my clothes. What I never told her is that I didn't want to hurt their feelings by making them feel unwanted. For some reason, I anthropomorphised my clothes, not my dolls.
When I was little, I thought people disappear when you close your eyes. So I'd try to catch them while they are "disappearing" like I'd close one eye and open the other one to peek and see if they'd actually disappear. I got tired when they're too fast for me.
thought toothpicks were made by spinning down one whole tree to make 1 toothpick
(My mom's still mad about this)
When I was little my favorite line from the bible went somewhere along the lines of "better things than this you will do..." concerning Jesus's miracles and humans ability to do the same.
So I was always trying to do ridiculous stuff because Jesus said could, or at least that's what I thought.
Now, I'm not really sure if I used this as an excuse or if I was serious, but when I in kindergarten, I'd convinced my friends to follow me into the bathroom and flood it for me. We RUINED the plumbing by flodding all the toilets and the sinks and wasting all the paper. When my mom asked me why I did it, I told her that I was trying to walk on water.
I used to beilieve I was an alien! LOL! God knows I was wierd enough...
I used to believe there was a limited amount of words you could speak in your whole life, and when you used them all up, you could never talk again. I used to say everything in the shortest amount of words possible, and even ignore stupid questions so I could save words for when I was older.
i belived that there was a parade under my pillow that i could never see or catch but i could hear them so i thought, i now realize that it was just the d\rusteling of my hair and the brushing of my eyelashes against the pillow
One Easter my family and i were having a dinner at our house. We had my baby cousin there and my mom kept asking her were the easter eggs were on the " Happy Easter " decoration we had hanging up. Being a little kid and wanting the attention i replied " i can show you where there are real chocolate easter eggs "..i asked everyone to follow me to the back yard and pointed to a couple of dog crap piles. Everyone laughed and remind me every easter of the " Chocolate Easter Egg " incident.
I used to think that everone but me were aliens in disguise from another planet and they were doing an experiment on the other species -me.
I once told my brother that every day the spark monsters from electrical boxes around the city would decide on a person to come out and kill. It was his day next week. He believed me.
i used to believe that the white foam on the surface of the ocean were unicorns trying to escape.
I used to wonder whether or not any of the world was real. I thought that I was either an insane mental patient who was living only in his mind, or that all the other people in the world were actors.
I thought way too much.
In elementary school, my friends and I had this weird relationship with the monkey bars. There were about 10 bars going up really high but we could reach the first one in first grade. So go figure, we assumed that every bar you reach was what grade you should be in. It didn't help that I was the shortest one so that in fourth grade, I could only touch the second bar. My friends were always just barely touching the fifth bar.
i used to think till i was 10 or so that i could see bacterias,
who by the way were trying to predict the future for me by forming patterns
of the future
,which were actually the things floating around in the eye(i am still
not sure wht they are,but i know everyone else has them!),and
decided to become a doctor,i could diogonise anytning couldnt i??
i also thought that if you wore white completely including everything underneath
you would slowly start to disappear because you were turning into an angel!
yeah i had the white-o-phobia for a considerable period of time.
I used to believe if I jumped up and down in place,the earth would rotate under my feet,providing an easy mode of transportation.
