Authentic and Mentally Ill?

First, the outline I used for a different blog post was a complete nightmare. I’m not going to use it for blog posts.

Y’all are just stuck with my random thought process until I find something I can work with.

AKA serenity
Serenity is not avoiding the storm but being calm within the storm.

Authenticity

Authenticity is being yourself, flaws and all.

But this begs the question:

Can someone with multiple personalities be authentic?

I don’t know.

I, however, have some thoughts on it.

Imagine that. I have an opinion.

I have not been diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, but I have a council in my head that discusses everything.

Each member has their own personality and memories.

Somewhere between third grade and fifth grade I became we and major decisions were made by the council and everyone (except the core) must abide by the decisions.

It’s very rare, though more frequent lately, that someone other than Social Butterfly deals with the body and the outside world.

Sharing a body

What if each personality has it’s own authentic self?

This can make it seem like the person is changing all the time, but, for them, it’s just the way things are.

What if they are clear about having multiple personalities?

Can the public accept a person with multiple personalities as authentic?

I guess we will find out…

Until next time ..
