i'm differentShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was little, my dad told me that he had super powers and could see through walls. Wanting to be as cool as him, I thought that I had also developed the super powers, and I would stand in one room of my house and squint at the wall, listing everything that was in the next room.
I used to think that all reality was a dream and that I was really in a science experiment sleepwalking everywhere I went. When I went school I was really in an abandoned school going through the routine while all of these scientists, that I couldnt see were watching me. :)
I used to believe that I was in a dream, maybe even being dreamt by myself, after all we appear in our own dreams, and that if I (or whoever was dreaming it) woke up that I would somehow be in another place and time.
When I was a little girl I thought I was a princess and everyone in the world was hiding it from me and put me in a simple life.
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.
i swear on all that's holy, until i was around 13 or so, i used to believe that really truly one day a dragon would just burst out of the sky, lift me up, and carry me off to the world i was *really* supposed to be living in.
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.
My sister's best friend (since high school-20 some years ago) is now a teacher with 2 sons. When her 1st son was born her hubby took literally 100+ ROLLS of film before they left the hospital. When 2nd son was born hubby was away on busines, hence there were NO ROLLS or even one picture taken at hospital. This always bothered her 2nd son and he'd bring it up every so often. The "family joke" that they had told him everytime he'd ask was... "Oh honey, we've told hundreds of times. You're an alien baby we just found you in a UFO we saw crash. They never meant to hurt his feelings, just to change his mind about dwelling on the fact his brother's baby book takes up 3 books to fit the pictures. His just one and it's 3/4 full only. Well, I guess around his tenth birthday my sister (2nd son's godmother) was called and asked to fly out to their out of state home ASAP. Seems the kid believed the Alien Baby story for reals. My sister flew out there to assure him he was born here. She brought the one picture taken at the hospital of her holding him the day he was born. Scary isn't it?
Between the ages of 6-12 I had a fervant belief that I would be a rare survivor in some sort of post-apocolyptic scenario. The scenaro often changed- post-nuclear, post-disease, post-evacuation to remote area, post-whatever.
I had plans laid out for every imaginable scenario. I had itineries. I researched things likie edible plants, and home-made medicines, how to make traps and how to generate electricity.
I really felt it was my destiny.
On several occasions I was even convinced that the end was neigh and the world would change that night, next week, before my next birthday et cetera.
Even now I like to make sure I have bottled water, hypothermia blankets, and long-life dried food around.... just in case.
I used to think that most people had two parts of their vision, since ppl had 2 eyes, they had something similar to 2 television screens so that they good fix one at something and use the other for something else. and i thought it was only i who had combined vision, :D
when i was little i was positive i was a warewolf and the vitamin tablets my mum would give me every morning were really special pills to stop me transforming of a night...i was weird!
I used to believe that all of the 'mind-readers' in the world were reading every one of my thought. I tried to catch them off guard by thinking 'I know you're listening!' and then looking around to see if anybody around me looked surprised.
I used to believe that everyone was psychic and had all kinds of extra-sensory abilities but, since I was really bad at it, no one talked about it while I was there so I wouldn't feel bad.
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.
When I was little (3 or 4) whenever I took a bath I thought the water was going to boil, so whenever my dad or mom would come to take me out of the bath I would yell "get me out before the water boils!!"
I used to believe that I was the only person who had my name, and that no two people could have the same name.
My brother and I used to believe we had magic powers, and so we would train in secret. When I discovered this, I ran to tell my mom, but my brother stopped me, "They're SECRET magic powers, remember?"
I was a superhero named Captain Stupid.
I used to believe I was really an animal in disguise. What kind of animal I was varied greatly. I kept trying to convince people(especially my mom) that i really and truly was an animal.
I used to think that when i went home from school everyone else ceased to exist.
