one dream that i always thought was real til i brought it up to my mom and she denied it being real was this trip to disney world with her and my grandma. i told her how i couldnt remember what rides we went on but i remember the flight there and departing from my dad and brothers, who were sad they couldnt go. she told me we never went to disney world w my grandma lmao

@netherpi: i have the morning routine dream a lot too omg. ill get dressed and everything, then wake up confused as to why im in pjs

yes most of them were dreams and it took me years of self reflection to connect the dots from stories and logic to figure out which ones were real or not. most of those faux memories were from when i was little because most of my dreams are very mundane and my stupid child brain couldnt figure it out bananacomputer


i thought the move to my old house was only one turn for some reason???

i was convinced i had memories from when i was one years old

i thought the kitchen my family had at an old house was massive and fancy (it wasnt they showed pictures

while this isnt childhood related, i had a dream i went through my whole morning routine but i woke up super confused because i was done getting ready?? my mom asked me if i was ready and i said yes, wait no.. and she was very confused

im not for sure if this one is real or not but it was me losing my polly pocket's limbs in the bath and them going down the drain, and another is mom yelling at some random dude at the middle of the night cuz he was knocking at our door

YEP- i always remembered me and my parents were at this waterpark and it was super foggy, after then we drove in a car and there was a nearby tornado- none of this happened but it feels like it did like it was so real omg w17

yeah, i would tell people that were in my memories about it and they had no idea what i was talking about. feel like they were just dreams that i somehow just remember because i thought it really happened

YESSSS I didn't know other people get those also. I have one of me on the beach and it's like stormy dark outside and there was a huge wave. I also always get a memory of some Buddhist statue on the stormy beach but its like a separate memory? Does anyone know why these happen? Maybe they're just dreams we had that we just remembered from forever ago? At one point I thought it was a sign of fate or whatever and I mean dang idk maybe it is lol.

@CybrBoy: what i remember was that they were right near the entrance (the place was pretty small) and the came in different sizes from biggest to smallest.animal05 the biggest was red, then orange then yellow then green with the last two being blue and purple. squirtle the purple was the one i could just fit through as a toddler and the red was prob 6 foot something tall. i went back there like a few years ago and everything seemed so mundane like before it was just a filter and the rainbow things i clearly remember playing with weren't there. crying
