i'm differentShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to think I was the future queen of the world, but I was put in a "normal" family to grow up so I wouldn't get a big head. Everyone was aware of this, but had been instructed to go along with the farce to teach me humility.
I used to wonder if maybe life was a big game. I thought that I was placed in the game by some higher power and my memory of before the game had been erased. The rules were that I had to figure out I was in a game, and then state that out aloud to other people. All other people in the world, though, were actually robots. I once asked my cousin "Are you a robot?" in an attempt to win.
When I was about eight years old, I saw a bad episode of "The Twilight Zone" which led me to believe (for at least a year) that there were cameras hidden everywhere I went. Also, my friends and family were all paid actors. My life was being broadcast and watched by the entire world at all times. I still feel a little paranoid.
Now that they have made at least two mainstream movies on this subject, I feel even more rediculous.
When I was about 4, I used to pretend I was a mouse named Sara. I would make my mom run around the house looking for me yelling "where's sarah?" then I would squeek while hiding under my bed. For some reason I always wore a bathing suit with a duck on it.
When i was probably about 5, i came to think that if you stared at people or animals long enough you could dissolve their brain, and that was why it was impolite to stare.
Since I am adopted, my parents explained I didnt come from them. My brother told me I was from Agusta Maine. I have no idea how I reached the conclusion that Agusta Maine was a noodle. But I thought I was a noodle person, to be a little more accurate I thought I was a princess noodle person.
When i was younger i asked my mum where babies came from. She told me that I used to be a monkey and one day when her and dad were tramping they found me in the mountains so they caught me and chopped off my tail and singed off all my hair. For a long time i truely believed that i was a monkey.
When I was about 6 I used to walk up and down in front of our reflective school hall windows pretending to be a reindeer. i thought that if i tried hard enough i could turn into one. i even used tot hink i could see my nose turning red and my body changing shape.
I have a cousin who thought he could run faster when he got new shoes ..
When I was little I would always say in my mind, "I know you can read my mind", just in case
I used to believe that I'd be one day taken off earth and taken to heaven, when i finished my training on earth (which consisted of learning pain, happiness and being teased all the time. I thought that I was supposed to go through selfishness, depression etc, and then I'd finally complete my training, and everyone else knew this, and each had a special job to do (ie. be nice, tease, be bitchy and stuff)
When I was about 6, I was convinced that I was a talking super hero cat called Tabitha. My Mum was so concerned that she took me to see a councilor.
i used to believe i was an alien from outer space and was sent to destroy earth...bit of a shock when my parents found me taking gasoline from their car to build a bomb
I thought that I was the only person who could see and everyone else just faked it
My mother used to tell me I was like a bull in a china shop. Only, I heard "bowl" in a china shop. I imagined myself as a one-of-a-kind, delicate, beautiful, priceless heirloom... until I was in college when I heard the correct version.
In 1st grade, we were asked to say what we would do if we were President (if we could make any law). I said, aloud to the class, that I would make it acceptable for women to go around topless. It is alright for men to do so, and I thought it was sexist for women to not be allowed.
No one else thought so.
I used to believe that I could move faster than my shadow. I would quickly switch directions thinking I could fake it out and catch it for whatever it was. To this day for some reason every now and then I still try it. I'm 23.
I used to believe there was a limited amount of words you could speak in your whole life, and when you used them all up, you could never talk again. I used to say everything in the shortest amount of words possible, and even ignore stupid questions so I could save words for when I was older.
i used to believe that the world couldn't have possibly started before i was born.
I used to believe that pictures and posters could see me. So whenever I did something private in my room, I turned all my pictures upsidedown and took down my posters.
