When I was a child I was a sad shy little thing and I am now 50 and not too shy and not little at all now but I remember my imaginary friend. His name was Jared Murphy. LOL funny to remember something like that after 40 years. Even my sister remembers me talking about "him"
I never had an imaginary friend. I came to think that people with imaginary friends were actually seeing ghosts, has children could apparently see ghost more easily. What do y'all think about that idea?
Imaginery friends are everything u want in a real friend..... i don't really know the reason for that in particular ... but i think its because we believe that they understand us better and not criticise ...
Sometimes I think a child's imaginary friend is actually a spirit who reaches out to the child because they have yet to be able to distinguish between what's real and what isn't. Therefore, they are more likely not to dismiss the fact that there is a spirit showing itself to them.
My only experience with imaginary friends was my younger cousin. His "friend" was kind of scary, because my cousin would blame the strangest things on him and would know things he shouldn't know for his age. It's really hard to explain unless you've experienced it firsthand.
We're starting to wonder if my son has an imaginary friend. He calls him "the kid." He'll tell us that "the kid" did something or that a certain toy isn't his; it's "the kid's." I'm not sure what to make of it.
