i'm differentShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to be afraid that we lived in a giant's dream, and I was terrified that one day he would wake up, and the world would end. One day I shared this fear with my sister and was shocked to discover that she also believed that. I still have no idea what led us to think that.
In pre-school I believed that pennies would come out of my cuticles if I cut them and I also believed that my nose was a sort of pouch that I could store small treasures in. Needless to say, my parents were called a few times after I had tried to store my treasures, i.e. seeds, small washers and the like, and had I had quite a time trying to retrieve them.
When i was about 5, i thought i was the only person with kidneys and i told my teacher that i had kidneys and she said that everybody had kidneys. i got so upset, i started crying, because i thought i had special kidneys.
When I was little I used to think that I had secretly come from outer space and my parents were not telling me the truth, and that they were watching me through the tv.
When I was younger I always thought that everyone in the world is a part of a big dream Im having. I thought that I was lying down in a bed that I couldnt wake up from, because the dream was so realistic. So I always thought that if I wished sometihng hard enough it would happen, or if Im sad there would be a hurricane going on or something.
i used to think that there might be huge giants looming over us, and they might step on us sometimes, like how we step on ants. so you had to always look up, and make sure you weren't in the way of their foot.
I used to make my friend believe I was an alien and could turn ketchup into blood when she turned around(I added water) I think she still believes me a little.
i thought that there were two different worlds.one was dinosaurs and the other was normal.the normal world was only normal when i was looking at it and the dinosaur world was what i wasn't looking at (what was behind me).when i wasn't looking at someone they turned into a dinosaur.i used to drive myself crazy tyring to turn around as fast as i could and looking in mirrors, trying to get a peep of the dinosaurs.
i was such a confused kid that i asked my mum "can you be retarded without knowing it?" she told me that you could.so after that i thought that i must be retarded or i wouldn't be so confused with the world.i think i still partly believe it.
when i was small i used to think i was held captive in my head and i used to to get out by running around in circles as fast as i could.it didn't work
Sometime in middle school, I realized I was a robot. The evidence? I never felt emotions. This scenario made me a bit sad, and lonely, but it didn't occur to me that these were emotions. By high school, it had clicked that this whole scenario made absolutely no sense!
I used to believe there was a special place that only me and my friend could go to. I don't remember what it was, but EVERYTHING magical lived in it... O.o
one time when I was little, I was watching this show and they were explaining how to tell your left and right. They said that you just look at your hands and which ever one makes an L is your left hand (Your index finger and your thumb)We'll imagine my shock,when they both made an L, except I didn't realize that the L on my right hand was backwards. So I figured which ever "L" looked more like the letter L was the real one, even though they looked the same to me. I was AMAZED at how fast other people knew which one was the 'real one' For months I thought that I was just really stupid, and horrible at telling my left from right!
i used to think i was God's special child ,something like a supergirl coz the light from the camera (flash) would stay in my eyes after the photo was taken.
I used to think that everyone in my family were really skeletons wearing human costumes and when I went out of the room they'd take off their people-suits and put them back on when I came back, and being afraid of skeletons I'd announce my arrival and give them enough time to get into their people-suits. I was afraid of getting older because I thought once I reached a certain age they'd tell me I also was a skeleton in a human costume.
When I was little I decided that I was a superior to evryone on earth and had special divine knowledge. Yeah I was a little disturbed! Well I made up historical events and even a form of math that made no sense except to me that I claimed was the kind of math Thomas Jeffersona and Abraham Lincoln learned. I would put together to addition flash cards overlapping and see if the person could figure out the answer. When someone finally startee getting them right, it freaked me out. Turns out the light was shining through them. I'm over that whole superior knowledge thing now!
I am 11 years old, going on 12 in 5 months. I had an imaginary friend named Sam, but she got hit by a car one day on the way to the post office. I was 7 years old when she died. I haven't had and imaginary friend since. I am trying to find a new imaginary friend, but I can't seem to...I can't just make up a new one! Anyways, Once I was in school (Grade one) and my teacher asked me what 2x4 was, and I didn't know the answer so I said, "Sam, do you know the answer?" My teacher thought I was going crasy and sent me to the school phsychologist. I went to therapy for two years, and never brought Sam to school ever again.
The little girl i babysit for, Jessie (four years old) is often the source of much wisdom. Here's one of our more recent conversations:
Jessie: I'm half Irish because Daddy's mostly Irish, and Mommy's everything else.
Me: so what's your other half?
Jessie: well, my middle name is Rose, so...i guess pretty.
When I was little and my mom would take me to the store I would walk with my feet turned in when she wasn't looking because I thought if people thought that I was a crippled child they would give me money.
When I was little I used to believe I was a pretty princess and that I was the most beautiful person in the world, and that everyone was trying to make me not know it so I wasnt concieded, so they all just ignored me.
