What is something you believed as a child that you learned was untrue as an adult?
I’ll go first!
For some reason when I was kid, I thought that my parents didn’t sleep and watched over me while I slept instead. I also thought that everyone had similar lives and were like me. Since I was highly sensitive I thought everyone got overstimulated sometimes and needed extra alone time. I soon found out these things were indeed NOT true when I got older 😅.
What about you? What misconceptions did you have growing up?
