i'm differentShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
when i was ikkle i used to believe that if i pretended to be a mouse for long enough, i would actually become one. So everytime i went shopping with my mom, i would scurry around the floor squeaking n nibbling at imaginary food - sad yes
i used to believe that this wasn't my real life, but some kind of dress rehearsal of my life. i thought this was great because then i could just go to the real thing and change anything i did wrong in the rehearsal. i don't actually know where i got this from, but then, i was kinda odd.
I believed that I vas special, that when I grow up I will save the world somehow and make myself famous, that I`ll be the first one who will speak with aliens, that I will be the first one who will fly myself...
I used to believe that I was actually mentally retarded but I was SO severely retarded that I didn't even realize it. No one would tell me because they didn't want to hurt my feelings. I even asked my mom several times if I was retarded and people were just pretending for my sake that I wasn't. (The irony now is that my son is autistic and I am extra careful to protect his self-image.)
I went through a stage where I used to believe that I was a cat. I would "meow' and purr. Thank god I grew out of that one!
When I was little I thought that my life was a tv show and everyone around me were actors. I thought I was the star, and when I was alone in a room, I would narrate what was going on. I believed this for years, and sometimes I still think there's a hidden camera in my office or bedroom.
(the bathroom had cameras too!!!)
When I was about 4 or 5, I used to think, that if I went through a different door or gate (like in the store or zoo) than my mom, that when we came out on the other side, I would be in a different dimension and that the mom on this side was evil!! LOL!
When I was little I believed that our world was controlled by giants. They used us as you would a dollhouse. I used to lay on the floor and hide from the window so they wouldn't find me.
I used to think I was either an alien or had a rare disease that no one knew about yet because I thought I was so different from everyone else in 5th grade.
my family used to say that i talked too much and I was in the bathroom looking down my throat and saw my epiglottis and ran screaming down the stairs announcing hysterically that I was growing two tongues...my mum stil says shut up or you will grow another one
I believed that I was developmentally disabled and everyone around me was trying to keep it a secret from me.
I believed that good and bad days alternated so the first day was good, the next day would be bad, then good, then bad. So I would plan things by counting out the days to make sure that things were always happening on "good" days.
I believed that I was the only person in the world that would never die.
ok this is Really messed up. But I used to make believe that I was a squirrel and I would gather 'fish' (pine cones) for the winter. I didn't want to end up like the lazy grasshopper!
my daughters look nothing alike...they are black/spanish/white. my youngest has light hair and no real eye color (even at age 2). she also has a minor speech delay but loves to just make unusual noises. my son (who is 12)says and is convinced of such that his sister is an alien.
My friend thought he ran on batteries and doctor visits were to put in new batteries.
I used to look for evidence that I was actually the last person on earth and that everyone else was an angel sent from God to pretend to be human so that I could have a normal life. Vacations were usually the occaision on which this suspicion would crop up again because I would so often see something in another city that looked almost exactly like a place I knew very well back at home. I would imagine that maybe there was just a little piece of the earth left and when I was "traveling" all the angels would run around changing the "set". I remember asking my mother once if she was really an angel pretending to be my mother. She laughed pretty hard and then said, "Believe me, I'm no angel!"
I used to believe that I was in a dollhouse and if I didn't behave like a normal person, the person who was playing with me would take me out of my house and put me in a different one.
I thought that I was the only real person on the planet.
I have no idea where I got this from, but when I was little I used to believe that this wasn't my real life I was living, but a dream life. I believed that I was actually still a newborn baby, and I was having this long, complex dream about my life to come. And that when I died in this dream life, I would wake up and my real life would begin. But everything would happen the same way, so in case I didn't like something, I would know about it happening ahead of time and I could change it.
I was a tomboy when I was younger, and was convinced that eventually I would just turn into a boy. I thought me being a girl was a mistake, because I thought girls liked to wear dresses and makeup and play with dolls. I didn't like any of those things, so I thought I was a boy. Then one day one of my friends mother told me that if you kissed you elbow you would turn into a boy. I only tried a short time before I realized that wasn't possible.
But I'm happy being a girl now.
I used to believe I was Polish when I was five years old. I have no idea why. I convinced myself I could speak fluent Polish and proceeded, for two weeks or so, to chat away to random strangers in the street in something akin to complete gibberish.
