“For today’s prompt, tell us three things that you believe in your heart to be true. Tell us three things you believe in your heart to be false.”
It’s a difficult prompt! I don’t want to say anything that might offend others. It might be safe for me to talk about what I believed when I was a child. Sorry, I might not be able to name all three.
It might be kind of silly. But some of you might remember when you believed you were secretly some king and queen’s daughter, or you happened to be a princess of another world. Well, I know, today’s kids might not believe in these silly things. But they actually should!
When I was a child, I always thought I shouldn’t be here, here on earth, on this plane. I kind of felt I was feeling very different from other kids. I imagined if I went through a certain Torii gate of the local Japanese Shinto shrine, I might be able to go into another world which I believed I truly belonged to. Maybe I still believe there are a few places where those gates exist. 😉
What are Torii gates?
