i'm differentShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was about 8 years old that I was the best footballer of all time in the whole world. Well that proved quite different.
When I was 5 or so, I thought there was a boy on the exact opposite side of the world. He and I could never never never (repeat "never" a few hundred times) be asleep at the same time.
So when I over slept, he got to stay up late, and when I stayed up late, he got to oversleep.
I used to think I was a bird. I thought this because every time my mom bought the squiggly kind of pasta, I pretended they were worms and I was eating them. So one day my mom made me the squiggly pasta for a snack and I went inot my sister's room and said "I'm eating worms!!" and she said "Only birds eat worms". I TOTALLY believed her and proceeded to put on my angel wings from last year's halloween costume and make a nest for myself in the corner of the couch.
I used to believe I was a dog on the inside and a human on the inside. Until I was about 5, I would crawl around on my hands and knees making barking noises. My grandma's dog was also my brother. I also used to think that I could change into a horse whenever I felt like it, so I used to prance around neighing.
In the US there use to be a show called "Chalk Zone" the idea was that every time you drew on the blackboard with chalk it would come to life in this world called Chalk Zone and you need a magic chalk to get there. That influenced me when I was in elementary school to believe that on the dry erase bored their would be another world waiting for drawings to come to life. So I would draw a whole bunch of characters wishing them all the best to their new life in the whatever world they went to...
I used to believe that I was the only person alive because when others died I stayed here. I figured that if I died they would all end.
Until I was in 5th grade, I was absolutely convinced that I was a Pegasus queen from another planet, sent to earth for some reason that I couldn't remember because I had amnesia from falling on my head when I landed.
When I was a kid I thought I was special and was the only person that could see the clouds moving across the sky
Once, Sharon, Lois and Bram (a TV show) went to the Toronto Zoo. I had been to the Toronto Zoo. Therefore, I assumed I must be famous since I'd been to a place that was on TV.
I used to believe that I had to treat myself fairly: If I tapped one foot I'd have to tap the other, if I itched one ear I'd have to itch the other; and i'd end up making elaborate itching patterns up just so I'd be ''equal''. Also, everything had to be centre, if I itched my nose and it was slightly off-centre I'd have to itch the symmetrical place... Maybe it was a form of a COD or something, but I used to get real annoyed with myself for it. I sometimes still do it!
I thought that people were little dolls and we'd play when the "big" people were asleep and when we were asleep the "big"people would play with us. I told my mom this and she thought the same thing too!!
When I was little I wore those itchy pajama shirts, I had one with miss piggy on it and one night it was cold outside and I was snuggled in the blankets while wearing it and static electricity kept causing blue sparks and electricity type noises. So i and cried thinking I was a robot. My mom laughed at me. I was terrified!
I thought I was the only person in the world who didn't like ice cream
I used to believe that I wasn't a normal girl but a real princess. I was just waiting someone to "discover" me and take me to my Royal Life. And then everyone around me would get surprised!!!
I used to believe that there was a committee of people whose entire purpose was to watch my every move and analyse me. There were hidden cameras everywhere I went and I was always being watched. It never bothered me, I would sit in my room and tell them stories. My mom would always yell at me and tell me to stop talking to myself. I never told anyone I was really talking to "them".
When I was in pre-school, I was absolutely sure that when I turned around people would pull down zippers on their backs and show their true disgusting green sliming dinosaur-like exteriors and then try to eat me.
If you knew me as a kid, no one was out of my sight for more than five seconds.
Thanks to The Little Mermaid, I used to believe that someone's voice was actually a golden, misty sphere of light. I used to stick out my tounge and look in the mirror to see if i could see it sparkling. I also used to believe that if I hung upside down it would fall out.
I used to believe that I was a bad kid because I slept with my bedroom door open, because a fireman came to my kindergarten class and told us we needed to close our doors in case of fires.
I was so scared that I would die from a fire, it overrided my fear of the dark, and i started closing my door when i went to bed.
My mum used to tell me that when i was naughty it was because the invisible naughty worm was inside me, so whenever we were going out somewhere i would have to squeeze the worm out of the top of my head and hide it behind a photo of myself. Because i used to believe everything my mum said i thought it was the naughty worm misbehaving not me!
I used to believe that my family were all millionaires but my two brothers, my sister and myself were being brought up in an ordinary household so we could be taught the real value of money and did not grow up spoilt. I remember thinking that my mother would tell us all when we turned eighteen. I must have believed this until I was at least twelve because I was sure that my brother and sister, who are both over six years older than me, already knew and were keeping the family secret from me.
