Say you're a troubled 8th-grade Japanese kid and you need a fantasy in your mind to escape to, what would that fantasy be? Have you had similar thoughts before learning what Chuunibyou is?

The reason I'm asking is:
When I was a kid (like 7 or so), I always had a sneaking suspicion that everyone in the world besides me could read minds (and that my thoughts weren't safe), and that everyone buzzed around in some weird collective just to screw with me and to try to keep it a secret from me.

Anyway, thinking back on it, I still kind of think that would be a cool setup for an anime or sci-fi show, and I was wondering if anyone else has had a chuunibyou delusion of their own?

When I was younger, I truly believed that I had this secret power flowing within me, and it was only in my family, along with a few other select families. This included the ability to make any machine work by just being near it (that happened to me a lot, coincidentally), floating, and general magic powers, and I would awaken to them by meditation, but I had only until I was 12 to unlock my potential. I've also: believed I could make things happen by believing it to be true, questioned my own existence, thought everyone else may just be a dream of an insane me, years in the future, looking back on my memories of high school and living within them. I also questioned my birth, as I do not have a birth certificate, and there aren't many pictures of my mother's pregnancy, and those include me being an African prince to having been a monk for my early years, to thinking I was a product of the government, for I do not remember much of my early childhood.

To escape from reality, I imagine some anime-ish world where I play all the characters because, who else would?

I used to think I was able to walk through solid objects (Due to a blurry memory I've had when I was 5, I was locked outside the house, and somehow I got through the door, I'm not sure if this was a childhood memory or a childhood dream).


But I'm a realist now through and through, I don't even think about supernatural anymore.

So i just googled Chuunibyou and was like this is kinda confusing to understand, but i think i get the gist of it. So check this, when i was really young i always had crazy stories of anime come into my mind, like what happens when i brought this type of character in this anime,or how could i make a cooler character. Anime stories would feel my mind for hours, i could sit and stare off into space for hours. Also i would sleep with 3-4 manga books a night, hoping i would dream of anime. (looking back i think i was just being silly and i had a huge imagination)

I feel so happy when I am a child. I truly believed that I had this secret power flowing within me, and it was only in my family, along with a few other select families.
