    The further back you go the more likely you are to find beliefs that you no longer have, at least in the same way. What are some of yours? What stage of life were you in at the time, and what influenced their development? Why do you no longer believe them?

    I used to believe that people are mostly decent inside and make decisions based on their good senses and logic. However, life showed me it doesn't always happen this way. And the realization helped me a lot in life, so it all worked out in the end.

    When I was a kid I believed in Santa Claus, and magic, and if Santa Claus was magic then he should be able to give me presents that don't exist, such as an actual living Pikachu.
    Also as a really young kid, I thought girls were icky/had cooties (whatever that is). Girls at school knew I thought this so they would try to touch me to freak me out and I would run away.
    For a while in my teenage years I was really pretentious, and thought that all music that was popular and came out in the 21st century was bad, and that music played on real (non-digital) instruments was the only kind worth anything. I've changed my mind since then, though I'd still say a lot of popular music today isn't my kind of thing, but there are some songs I like.

    I used to be a Christian and believed in God. I was raised that way. Although I never really held the belief myself. I never found any reason to believe for myself. I thought my family and community had been legitimately connected to by this being and that either I would be someday as well or something was just wrong with me.

    Even today, I still think something is wrong with me, which is why I couldn't feel like everyone else did at church. I could never get caught up in it all like them. However, I don't think it is stopping me from connecting with any actual real being, and to be honest, if it stopped me from being fully straddled along with this toxic belief system maybe it's not all bad...

    when i was 6/7 years old there was a brief period of time i convinced myself i was the "chosen one" because the sun and occasionally the moon always kept following me around and shining their light on me. i also thought around that time period that the earth and life was created 2000~ years ago.

    i wasn't a bright kid.

    When I was young I used to think I was a Super Saiyan and that one day Kid Buu would come from the sky and attack my school. Then I would power up and protect all my friends and be hailed as a hero.

    ...i can't believe that pink cunt let me down :dammit

    That people of recent centuries were more influential than people of the past that could be named but people like some Mesopotamian rulers made innovations that allowed empires to form, for example, even though they only influenced a relatively small geographical area compared to people of recent times that have more or less influenced the entire world.

    Yeah, I thought that I was the main character and everyone else were either co-stars or extras. I mostly blame 90s-2000s Disney sitcoms for that.

    Souka. I treat life like a game(sometimes). When I don't like someone, I manipulate this person or try to make them looking stupid. I'm like Ichimaru in a few aspects. I'm also not serious, when I can afford to do this(example:when I play games with weaker opponents).

    Manipulating people irl is pretty fun. The trick is remembering where all your web of manipulations connect so that everything doesnt go falling apart.
