As an informative part of DID education, the original article lists descriptions of the kinds of insiders you will find in a Dissociative System.
It’s a thorough list, but not exhaustive.
- Who do you see of your system in this list?
- Who will you need to meet now that you have learned about these different possibilities?
- How much do you relate?
It may feel a bit overwhelming, but if those insiders are there, they are there for a reason, and that makes them important. Take the time to meet your people, and honor them for the work they did and the help they offered in your survival of the unthinkable.
Remember, talking with each other internally — that ol’ internal communication process — is essential for healing. And, you gotta know they are there before you can start talking with them.
Look for your inner people — you’ll find them!
I wish you the best in your journey.
