When I was young I used to believe via Absolutely Small. Very fun! Go have a look at what people believed when they were kids.
Well, I don't have to make this one up. I believed in fairies. When I was very small I lived in an apartment in Dallas, Texas. My mom and I shared a bed, one of those that have a bookshelf attached to the headboard. I woke one night to find little people, fairies, sitting around my head in the book shelf. I was so fascinated watching them, I stayed very still as not to frighten them away. Their voices were so small that it just made tiny trill sounds, but I knew they were talking about me. It was thrilling and I felt so lucky that they were visiting me. I have thought about this event many, many times in my life and I know it was not a dream or an illusion. Somehow, I had this magical visit. For what reason, I don't know. But it happened, to me. The weirder part ... many years I was confiding in my college friend, Faith, telling her of this. She got all quiet and strange and said she had the same encounter when she was young. Coincidence?
When I was young, I believed my mother would marry her long-time boyfriend Jack and we were all live happily ever after. That did not happen, although my mom and Jack remain fast friend until this day. I always cry when he calls to say hello. He will never know how he broke my heart.
When I was young, I thought my step-father loved us so much, that he would quit drinking.
When I was young, I thought if I ate fish, it would make me smarter. I ate a lot of fish.
I thought that something terrible could come up from the drain in the bathtub and grab me.
