Accepting who I am has led to a very interesting journey of self discovery and I have been able to get more done in a month then I have in a year.
The irony is that the personality that initially sought help here hasn't reappeared since her first panicked post.
She only showed up once, and that was to file my nails. Apparently, i did such a bad job she had to fix them. They they do look nice though.
I just wanted to leave this post to remind everyone to be kind to yourself. Life is hard and sometimes all we have is ourselves. We can't fight the world and ourselves. Making peace with me has been very freeing. Trusting myself to do the right thing and take care of things has made all the difference.
Being able to have a completely anonymous place for my alters to go and read has helped tremendously.
Even if you don't suffer from DID having a place to just say everything outloud without ever having to face reprocussions or fear of someone finding it is so cathartic and helpful.
Thank you to the makers of this site. For me it has meant the world, in a very short time.

I am so very happy that you have found the site useful and hope that all of your alters have found something helpful, including the nail filer
Glad to have you here with us.

Hi Qwerty,I just wanted to leave this post to remind everyone to be kind to yourself. Life is hard and sometimes all we have is ourselves. We can't fight the world and ourselves. Making peace with me has been very freeing. Trusting myself to do the right thing and take care of things has made all the difference.
I find this very uplifting, thanks for sharing. Acceptance is hard but I am also finding more and more that it is the key to healing. Try as I might I can't hate or bully myself into recovery. Without acceptance I end up punishing and shaming myself relentlessly until those wounded parts go back into hiding and are harder than ever to build trust in again. But acceptance as a form of self-compassion seems to be the antidote that ends those cycles of violence against myself.
