now don't read this unless you want to be thoroughly confused: i used to believe that, because i didn't know what other people were thinking and feeling, and they didn't know what i was thinking or feeling, it was perfectly reasonable to assume that everybody was the same person, really. i remember understanding my reasoning... wish i could now, bet it would make my life a whole lot more interesting...
I had myself convinced that everyone sees colours differently. Like, just because I see something as the colour orange, maybe to someone else the colour orange looks like what the colour blue looks like to me. Etc etc.
I out-logiced myself as I couldn't figure out what colour is the TRUE colour for being a certain colour. So I decided that the way I see colours is correct becuase the name of the colour sounds nice with the colour that I see.
When I think about it, I still can't reason that out properly, and I'm 18!
In some part of my childhood I really used to believe that i was different & didn't belong to earth & maybe had some magical powers which could help me rule all the kids so that I can be their princess!!!
My brothers and sister were evil. When I was a child, they told me I was born in a cabbage patch, and they had the birht certificate to prove. When they showed me the certificate, it looked pretty official to me, being a kid, so I believed, until I was over and I found the 'certificate'. It was a leftover Cabbage Patch certificate my sister had from her dolls. They wrote my name on it and signed it. I was so decieved! lol.
My friend thought he ran on batteries and doctor visits were to put in new batteries.
well when i was younger maybe 9 or 10 i used to believe that i was the only one in the world and that everyone else was fake and that they only excisted when i was around.. and when i would use the phone i wouln't be talking to them it would just be their voice ..
Well when me and my friends were little kids we use to believe in our backyard a elf lived their and wanted us to go on a special mission to save the world from aliens. We though everyone was aganist us and we would use to be scared to walk aloe. We were pretty dumb
i used to bileive i would never die. When i was a little girl, i thought life was this really great thing created for me, and everything happened to amuse or to make me sad.. i thought i wouldnt die like everybody else! Its a pretty strange and self-centered belief!
I had a crush on this girl once and it was only when I first saw her home, that I realized that other people actually exist on the planet besides myself; I thought that once I could no longer see them, they just waited until I came back into their life and would continue until I left again.
When I was around ten, I seriously believed that everything JK Rowling wrote was true.
I actually wrote a letter to Hagrid asking him to take me to Hogwarts!
Needless to say, when the letter didn't come I was depressed for about a week.
And nobody could understand why!
When mom left me at neighbours and ran errands and came back, she used to say
-I know you were up to some mischief
and when I asked how in the world she knew she said
-Because I have a special wristwatch and I can see you there.
I used to believe that, so much so that I remember sitting like stone, motionless one day. When she came back and said the exact same thing, I understood the whole scheme.
when i was little, i thought i could tell the future by looking at shapes of clouds.
I'm Caucasian, but when I was about four or five and people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up I said, "An Indian." I really believed that just because I wanted it, it could happen. What I really liked about the idea of being an Indian was getting to wear my hair in long, dark braids and wear beads.
Whenever i was naughty, my mom would say i wasn't allowed to have my ice-cream or dessert after dinner that night. i would become so distraught that i would tell her i was going to run away, and then i would run up to my room and write her a note saying i wasn't ever coming back, and then just go hide in our little cupboard under the stairs. After years of experience, my mom now knows exactly where to find me. XD
When I was very young, I didn't grasp the concept that just because I wasn't around, things still happened. Self-centered, I know. I would wonder how a person or thing got from where I last saw them, to where I was seeing them at that moment. That didn't last long; either I figured it out or I just stopped caring.
My school sometimes had "special" kids come talk to us about living with a disability. I wanted to be special too so I would walk around dragging one leg and talking like I had Down Syndrome. I'm sure my parents were impressed!
When I was small I played with doll houses and so I believed that we were just dolls being played with and up in the sky where we couldn't see them was a few kids playing doll house.
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
A while ago, I believed that my thougths were displayed outloud, and things I pictured were projected above my head. I felt guilty about thinking during church services and during moments of silence because I thought that people could hear me. I soon tried everything to not think mean things!
I used to wonder if I might be an alien from another planet, and my whole life is just a really long, detailed dream that I'm having, and when I die, I'll wake up as the alien, then tell the other aliens alllll about the dream (there'd be a lot to tell). I'm still not sure if that could be true...
