With so much pressure out in the therapeutic world to integrate, my question back to that, is why??
Dissociative trauma survivors need healing from all the wounding, and safety from any further abuse, yes, absolutely of course.
And some blending will occur naturally with internal / external safety, with good communication, and with excellent internal team work.
But what’s wrong with experiencing a safe and happy life as a multiple?
Once the PTSD elements of your trauma have been resolved….. and your external world is safe…. and those “Damnesia Walls” are down…. and you’ve become friendly, supportive and understanding of the various people in your system….
Your left with a group of strong, connected, compassionate, creative people enjoying life together.
hmmmm…. that life can look really cool.
I can see lots of beauty in being multiple.
