What do you think about the idea of ghosts?
First of all, I do not believe in “ghosts”. A year ago, my wife and 7 year old daughter moved into an apartment in which we currently reside. Months after moving in, I started “seeing” things in the corner of my eye- what appeared to be someone walking past me into another room. It happened frequently enough to get my attention, but I continue to sum it up as exhaustion or tricks of the eye.
I didn’t think much of it and gave it no mind, but one night I put my daughter in bed and she came into the living room crying, clearly shaken, stating she “saw a man walk across the hall into the bathroom”. It was just she and I in the house that night and I never walked to the bathroom, so it made a slight impression on me.
I never mentioned this to my wife because I didn’t want her to mock me, and I didn’t really believe it myself. But then one morning my wife had come home from work (she works over night in the ER), and she woke me up terrified that she saw, what at first she thought, was me standing in the hall staring at her but it was someone else- she said she felt frozen and afraid but it just went away.
It was at this time I shared with her what happened to our daughter.
These sort of things happened intermittently over the past year. There have been times when I put my daughter to bed and see “her” walk past me to the kitchen and I get up to put her back only to find that she is sound asleep in her room.
Tonight we were brushing our teeth in front of the mirror when I thought I saw a figure standing behind us in her room. It only happened for a split second so I didn’t give it much thought. A few moments later my daughter came into the living room with tears in her eyes saying she “saw a man walk toward her closet,” then she saw him again “walk into the kitchen”....
The idea of ghostly beings isn’t something I give much weight to, but after these events I’m left questioning the idea. What are your thoughts on the subject?
