Question  Connecting in the Singleton World
Living as a multiple in a singleton world can be challenging, to say the least. If we develop a good support system (MM, other forums, therapist, etc.), we have people to turn to when we need to talk about these challenges.

But we still have to live in a singleton world, and we're still multiples in this world, and our experience of self(ves) and of life is vastly different from that of singletons.

How do you reach out to others knowing that their experience and perspective are so different from your own? How do you balance the basic human need for interaction and companionship with the fact that most people will never understand what your life is like and what you go through?

Our system struggles mightily with this issue. We usually feel isolated, or at best, like a Martian among Earthlings, who have no knowledge or ability to relate.

How do you deal with this issue?
