Have you been told that you have different “parts” of you that sometimes show up?
I was shocked when I became conscious of a “split” that I had — a young eight year old version of me who would show up in times of great distress. I didn’t believe it when other people told me, but I talk about the incident in the emergency room that finally woke me up and helped me to discover and integrate all parts of me cohesively.
A split is different than an alter, which is a complete and separate identity, that one with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly Multiple Personality Disorder) may experience, and I get into all of that in this video.
