When I was a kid, and someone told us to close our eyes and imagine something, and then they asked if we could see it, I was pretty sure they just meant if we had it pictured in our imaginations, but, in the back of my mind, I wondered if other people really could see it, like in a dream, but, for some reason, I couldn't do that.

i used to imagine that the entire earth was just a puppet show run by a giant. i would be really embarrassed if i did something stupid, because i thought an audience was watching me.

When I was young, I used to think that everybody in this world was fake except me. Eevrything is happening just to trick me. That only my life was real! Kinda of like the Trueman Show (Jim Carrey). Ever felt like that?!

I believed that I was mentally deficient and everyone was just being nice to me. I thought that my parents warned anyone that I met just before I met them so that they would pretend to treat me normally. I spent ages scouring my school signs for anything that might suggest I was right. I was mostly convinced when I got 5 As and 4Bs at GCSE, but still consider the possibility when I am having a particularly paranoid moment, hehe.

Not quite sure how that belief came about, I don't think I was particularly paranoid about anything else.

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!

When i was younger i used to tell every one that i was really an alien and was swapped with an identical "person" when i was little and came to earth. Mum always used to ask how i remembered everything from before i arrived and i told her "of course i did, cause how obvious would it be otherwise and we couldnt go letting every one else know my secret ;)"

I told so many ppl this i fully beleive it myself before too long and was quiet dissapointed when i was reminded of this story when i was older and realised it couldnt be true :(

Somehow, when I was younger, I utterly convinced myself that my parents were not my real parents, and I was not in my real body. I was really a brunette named Molly that wore glasses and lived in the country instead of a blonde that lived in the city. I was longing for my real body and real parents until I was six or so, when I saw my birth certificate and worked it out for myself.

At one point as a small child, I was convinced that my cheerios were alive. I loved the cereal but couldn't bring myself to eat it. I would picture what it would be like to be a cheerio - living with a huge family in a box, where you would never be lonely. Then one day, you and some of your siblings would come tumbling and crashing into a bowl, where cold milk would make you feel freezing and soggy. Terrified, you would watch as a gigantic scoop came at you like a spear, and you were sent into a wet disgusting chamber (otherwise known as the human mouth) where you would be crushed into bits - a horrific death. I had to convince myself that it was ok . . . that cheerios were meant to be eaten, that being chewed up didn't harm them at all, but merely caused them to multiply, and go on a fantastical journey into my digestive tract. I was very odd in ways.

I complimented my little cousin's pajamas and he put his hands on them and said, "yea...but they got fleas in them."

He was wearing 'fleece' pajamas.

When I was little I used to believe that if I ran, the rain wouldn't catch me. Or if I stared at an animal, it would respon me, for example, with a bark

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 young I vaguely believed the entire world, practically everything I experienced, was a crafted charade produced by adults. I envisioned a conspiracy governed through meetings and phone calls when I was asleep. It was all pre-planned that I would pass a red van and then a blue Mustang on the bus ride to school. When my first grade teacher dropped her chalk while writing at the board, I knew that had been carefully arranged before. I didn't think there was any evil intent to ths, just that the whole world was a make believe situation designed around me. It was more narcissism than paranoia. And I expected that when I was older I would be called into service to pretend for other young people.

Long after I ditched this belief I still would play around with the idea, imaging the logistics and consequences of such a thing.
