Split Infinitive

We are a large family. The body is feamale. About 75 of us know the outside world in one way or another or in one experience or another. There are others that are never spoken about. We have Humans and Mythicals, We have gay, straight, bisexual. We have polyamorus and monogamous. Old to barely Born, Profoundly happy to Profoundly sad. We live a life unlike any other. We manage to exist as a cohesive group. We work as a perfect team as others that know us can tell you. We are an amazing group that can be scary and loving, angry and happy. We love meeting others like us that have the same experiences. We live this life just like anyone else. We want to live a life like every one else.

We started with just 9 that we knew about. Then it grew to 15. Then it just kept growing like we bursting at the seams. At the moment it has. Our thoughts are so many that we are all over the place in our thinking. One moment we will be discussing one thing then move on to something else without finishing the first thought. It can also be seen in our writings.

The art in this family is photography. It is a passion of a few and a love of others. It is hard work and love all rolled in to one. It is what we do.

We are not alters we are people. We do not believe in "putting ourselves back together." We do not believe we are broken. We believe that each one of us here has a purpose in our existence. We also believe that this is not a disorder but a gift. Had it not been for all of us we would not have been 34 years on this planet.

We want to know people more like us. Anymore we only know one other system that we love dearly.

Thank you for reading,

I love what you wrote above, our therapist is amazing, and helps so much with trauma stuff but the one thing she doesn't 'get' is that we are people not 'parts'.

We have an insider that says it is like herding a ranch of cows some days so we named the ranch. lol. That is how it started :)<br />

Have a great evening,<br />

Heh. You guys named your collective? I've read people that name their inner worlds as well, but never read anyone that named "themselves" as a group. I found that interesting
