Positivity Thread

Postby Muninn » Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:55 pm

I appreciate that this is a forum where we can share our problems and frustration and all the confusion that can come up with DID-symptoms. I think it is very important to have place where it is okay to vent and find some nice words and people who understand you, or just hear you.

But sometimes I miss a place where we also can share nice things that happen.

That's why I start this thread, where we try to write down positive stuff we we experience. Any one else is also very invited to share and spread positivity.

To make a start:

This evening I had a conversation with our best chat-friend. She knows about our multiplicity and she is always incredible supportive, but didn't now much details so far, apart of 3 of us who once said hello with their individual names.
Today we talked a bit more about us and she then described the characteristics of several parts, which she encountered in the chat so far and the descriptions where so spot on. I really was astonished that we actually are different even if we write. I always thought that we appear quite similar to other people :lol:

She also also recognized me without me having to tell my name and that was such a good feeling to have someone who actually "sees" me.

I just had to share this with someone who maybe can understand how good that feels :)

i've been told by some of the others that they really appreciate moments like that, where someone picks up on their mannerisms or body language and knows they're there. i'm really glad you had such a nice thing happen!

i like the idea of a positivity thread. something nice that happened to us recently was my partner flying over to see us (me and my partner are in a long distance relationship). my partner also deals with multiplicity, so we all spent christmas with each other without having to pretend to be the host/body name and it was really nice. normally we'd spend it with our respective families and it'd be awful, so it meant a lot to spend the holidays like that.

I was just thinking about making a thread like this, but didn’t feel like it was my place. I’m glad you did!

A few things from the past weekend.

1. Several in the system made a cherry pie in a collaboration. B. was happy stuff that had been sitting in the pantry was being used up. Raina wanted to bake. Lou wanted to decorate the top crust. And the littles and middles were excited about pie!
2. They worked on a coloring sheet together. O.V. requested the marker order, while 4-6 others took turns coloring different parts of the sheet. (Lou only wanted to color pink while A.J. took greens.
I helped to. I was orange.)
3. AJ is super excited her window cactus is growing!
4. D. talked to me!!! She has talked to their T, but never to me. Only texts to me until now. :D
5. Raina has now will use Meg's voice to talk directly to me instead of sign or writing!

i had a power/electricity problem. it looked like an issue with the main line coming in so I called the power company to check their equipment. i was right that it was the main line coming in but wrong about who owned the broken part. turned out I did - it was a bad lug on the meter housing.

power company shut me off until I had a licensed electrician repair and call engineering to verify. not a good feeling at 2pm when jack frost is coming to town for a week. but kids dad is a tradesmen and he got it fixed just like waving a magic wand. all I had to do was say thank you. he came out with an electrician from the job site. that electrician knew another one who he thought had just the part I needed. that fella was at the house an hour later. and after another hour I had power again.

it was really cool actually. and maybe to help teach me a lesson about not being too proud and stubborn.

I was gonna post about something positive, but then I got scared that if I did that, it'd be jynxed and we'd lose it. :?

So instead I'm gonna say: I love all our headmates and want all of them to be happy and that's our goal, for all of us to find happiness in whatever ways each of us want.

Today is the third day in a row that we made a list of what everyone wants to get done during the day. We start with the younger ones and ask each one what they want to do, and then try to get to everyone. It's hard to let them answer and not override it with grownup things, but we put those at the end of the list, so those get heard also. It helps everyone feel taken care of, and when we finish someone's list we mark it with asterisks.
