I used to believe that someone had made a mistake in making me a girl, since being a girl didn't suit me, and that it would just be a matter of time till the error was fixed and I magically became a boy. In the meanwhile, I thought I should continue acting like a boy and not make a big deal out of it, so no one would notice the difference when the actual change came. Now I'm a lesbian, and I don't want to be a boy anymore.

When I was about 7 I believed that I was the only person in the world that existed, all the other people (including my family) were angels who only existed when I could see or hear them and I would run downstairs or turn round really quickly to try and catch them out.

i used to get paranoid sometimes that some people could read my mind ( didnt truly belive it), but just to be safe, i'd sorta, make excuses in my own mind after thinking something potentially embarrasing or offensive.

My friend Nora and I used to actually believe that we were "Cog People", which we thought up. They were a mix of cats and dogs and posessed powers of those animals. We also believe that we could change it from being cats and dogs to any two animals and we tried so hard to figure out what combination we were.

We also believed that once a year on June 4th our skin would begin to peel off because, as well as being Cog people, we were reptillian aliens and our parents were just there to diguise our REAL ALIEN parents. We also thought that our REAL ALIEN parents had been the same parents (thus we were sisters) and the photographs we had of our births were fake.

We also thought there was this invisible purple goo that would hunt us down during recess becasuse we knew our secret. We believed that if we stodd on a certain sqare of the rubber mat of our play structure, it couldn't hurt us. We also thought that we attracted animals from our real planet. Once we found a wasp on the wall of the school and we were certain that we had discovered a new species of alien ants.

5th graders do the dumbest things, eh?

I used to be ashamed of the fact that I saw spots after seeing a bright light. I thought I was the only person to ever experience it.

I used to believe that everyone knew me, no matter where I went. I would always be surprised when people ignored me or when my mother had to introduce me to someone.
I really did think that everyone in the whole world knew me and loved me, like I was the most important person in the world!

When I was a kid, I had this wierd belief that there was some kind of invisible line attatched to me, so however many times I turning one way, I would have to turn as many times the other way or else I'd be enwrapped.

I used to think that the whole world was being watched constantly by a super-human force and i always wondered what they thought of me. I wish that i could still think that (not that I don't)

When I was little (about 2 or 3) I used to sleep in my mum's bed with her sometimes. She had these curtains in different shades of beige and brown and when the sun shone through them in the morning it used to make me think of snakes, and for some reason I thought I was going to be made to eat the 'snake-curtains' and it would always make me feel incredibly sick. My mum would wake to see me sat, staring at the curtains and retching loudly. I was an odd child.

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.

I use to believe that the only reason my parents would send me to watch T.V alone, was so they, along with the rest of the world could plot against me. The T.V was just a clever ploy to keep me distracted while they organized my downfall. haha

I used to think it was an actual possibility that my entire life was a movie (Except for the boring parts, which were edited out) and used to sit in my room trying to find the audience at night. I was an odd kid... I have to admit I retained at least a bit of my theory until about 5th grade, when I decided I was being idiotic.

I swear. We're all being FILMED.

When I was in Kindergarten, we had naptime every day. well, I believed that i could secretly send messages in my mind to other people in my class. Like, in my head, i would say hi to my best friend. At first I was mad that nobody ever replied to me, but then I realized that they just must be asleep. It amazed me how people can fall asleep so fast!

at my local park ( taken down now ) there used to be a HUGE slide and this girl at the park told me ( I was like 5 and she was like maybe 8 ) that if I go down the HUGE slide, that I would be in another world! I did and when I did my dad had a different color shirt on, but he tried to tell me he got a stain and went back to get another shirt but I didnt believe him!

in fourth grade...
I honestly, seriously believed that I could fly.
I cannot jump very high.
I cannot run fast.
But I thought I could leap from a slope as it began to go down and start flying; and that if I trained hard enough, I could fly myself to the moon.

When I was little, my older sister told me all sorts of things that I believed without question. Among these was that I wasn't really her sister, but a princess named Janelle, and I was kidnapped by my parents, who changed my name to hide me from Child Services.

When I was in grade school (i think 2nd) i thought there was a second playground you can go to by running 3 laps in the grass, then moving to the center and jumping up and down 10 times, and then going to the basketball court and winning a One (you) on Eight game. I then thought millions of trap doors would appear that only you and people who have found the secret playground could see. You then had to find the right one to get to the second playground. I actually did this once and i was dissapointed when trap doors didn't appear.

People. They were not real. They had created me. I was the only real one. The last. (first?) It took lots of hugs from my mom to convince me i was not alone.

Also!!! I wasn't that sure about God when I was little, so I decided God was real, but not what we thought. God was really aliens, and when we died they would take our brains and put them back into another body so we could 'live' foreverer and on... heheheheh
