I Am Not Superstitious

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 116 People

    It goes much deeper. People are generally only

    superstitious because they - of course, how could they not? - have some sense of the complexity of lifes interwoven threads which surround one. Because they don't have the guts to look deeply into all of this, they are superstitious instead. It's a cheap superficial way to...

    Stupidstitions

    Let's leave the superstitions to the Dark Ages, a time when people can not explain events because of limited knowledge. We're living in a new world of information and rationality. The reason why you're financially broke is not because you didn't close the toilet cover that day...

    I used to be superstitious

    and think that i was cursed. Every Tuesdays 13th I have an awkward accident . So I used to be afraid of this day. But nothing happened today so, I think that everything was in my head. If you think that u are cursed obviously things are going to go wrong.

    I Am Not Superstitious - Not Any, Have Never Been

    BUT THEY ALL ARE. VERY SUPERSTITIOUS - THEY BELIEVE IN DEVILS, GODS, ALIENS, GHOSTS, SUCCUBI, AND UNIMAGINABLE NUMBER OF THINGS. Some might even "exist" - BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY MAKE THEM.

    Why!

    I just don't see the point. I've walked under ladders, I have 2 black cats, I've accidentally broken a couple of mirrors....none of it has brought me bad luck. I think it just tends to be coincidence.

    I always wish for the same thing. I never tell what that wish is because I'm superstitious that way! It's a good one though!
