What is something you believed in as a kid that made you feel safe when you were afraid?

The typical hiding under the blankets.

I used to be afraid of something on the other side of the shower curtain grabbing me. I would say “army on” and I’d pretend all my favorite heros and movie/cartoon characters surrounded me and kept me safe.

That my dad was as strong as Superman and on the nights he was home our entire little world was safe. 😂

Hiding under the blankets I reserved for when I was angry at one or both parents to ignore them.

Yep hiding under the blankets, especially the feet

in most situations you just have to be faster than the fattest kid

Yes, “unhealthy fear” “unhealthy fear” because I learned there are healthy fears about reality and unhealthy ones that aren’t from an actual threat
