When I was a little kid I used to believe that the power rangers were reals so one while I watched the Rangers I punch the wall of my house believing it would break and obviously I broke my hand.
When I was a child I used to believe that a zombie invasion could happen, I also used to believe that things were given for granted, I used to believe that I could be a great archaeologist like Indiana Jones but now I know is not like that, I remember that I used to believe in the tooth fairy or as I used to call him "el raton Perez" and for last but not least I used to believe that life was real!
I used to be afraid of the hyenas(especially Shenzi, he looked the scariest) from the Lion King. I was really afraid that they would be hiding in my room at night, and that they would eat me in my sleep. I once had a nightmare where one of the hyenas grabbed me by the foot, dragged me under the bed, and they all started tickling me in the dark. It made me really scared and I ended up screaming! To this day, I sleep with my blanket covering my feet!
I used to believe that there were ghosts in my home
I was scared to go in the living room at night because the grand piano looked like a monster with legs and long teeth.
When I was a 5 or 6 year old, I was scared of going to the pond. Wanna know why? Because one time when I was at the pond with my babysitter, I tried to pick the lilies in the water.
My babysitter told me that if you pick the waterlilies, a hairy monster with glowing eyes was going to rise out of the pond, and drown me into the water. I was so scared that i never went to the pond for many years, fearing that the "pond monster" was going to drown me. Then after my parents found out, my babysitter never babysat me again.
To this day I have no idea why she told me that..
There used to be these realistic plastic toy horses by a company called Breyer that little girls loved to collect. My friend Mary was convinced that her Breyer horses had souls and would move around and do stuff when we were out of the room.One day she left a pen and paper and asked the horses to write a message. Later, we found strange markings on the paper, like another language, and it gave us both chills.We were absolute believers!Years later, her brother admitted he had written the mysterious message. Mary was very hurt though she was in her 20's.I think this experience had been very real and special to her, and he ruined the magic.
When i was 5 or 6, i had a nightmare where i was in the bathroom without the lights on. I heard noise coming from the bathtub curtain and i got scared so i tried to get out but the door was locked and i saw a vampire jump out of the bathtub and he pushed me against the wall and his face got closer to me and i woke up screaming.
My parents put a night light in the bathroom so i could see without turning the lights on but i was still scared of the vampire in the bathtub. So every night, i would wake my parents up and tell them to look behind the bathtub curtain to make sure there are no vampires so i can pee without them jumping out and scaring me. They kept telling me that there's no such thing as vampires but i didn't believe them.
When I was about 10 years old, I had an imaginary friend. His name was Eleven while my (nick)name was Nineteen (my favorite number back then). We often made bets like "I bet [insert name] will be at school today". When it was true, I scored, but when it was false, Eleven scored instead. I think I was even keeping track of our scores.
Later, we (me and Eleven) found two more friends: Fifteen, and Ten.Fifteen scored when the bet was half true and half false (since 15 is half-way between 11 and 19).Ten scored when the bet was neither true or false or completely unclear.
Because I believed that my childhood home was haunted, I would never sleep alone... So I slept in my mom's bed until we moved out.
