Can you list 5 things?
Everyone is on their own personal journey and this can have many, many bumps in road. It often can be a very difficult road to be on with many obstacles in the way. I tend to focus more the hardships and struggles as I go along the way and forget about the things I enjoy. Being multiple can be very challenging and hard, but today I am trying to focus more on what I enjoy about being multiple and the qualities I never want to change and keep. What are some the things you enjoy about your multiplicity? What qualities of being a multiple would you want to keep, and never lose?
Making list of these things might be helpful in finding that balance and seeing that it doesn’t have to be all bad all the time.
What are your thoughts? Can you come up with at least 5 things for each question?

Feedback  RE: Can you list 5 things?
Great questions. Our answers, in no particular order:

What are some the things you enjoy about your multiplicity?

1. We're never lonely.
2. Littles.
3. The variety within.
4. Becoming better at respect, cooperation, and consensus--and not being afraid to disagree.
5. A greater sense of uniqueness (as compared to singletons, who often conform to societal expectations without having to think about it).

What qualities of being a multiple would you want to keep, and never lose?

1. Our distinct individualities.
2. Our feeling of synergy--when we work together, being stronger than the sum of all of us as individuals.
3. Our ability to play.
4. Our unpredictability to outside people.
5. Our creativity.

We enjoy Two and Peak as we get to see what we were like as a child before the dark times. How strong and determined we were.

We enjoy knowing that there is someone within who has strength when we don't have it.

We enjoy making friends with wonderful people at MM.

We enjoy discovering the fact that we have many talents that were hidden under the rubble.

We enjoy looking back and seeing how far we have come on our journey.

What are some the things you enjoy about multiplicity and wouldn't want to give up?
1. less lonely than monominds;
2. someone can always understand any external perspective, how ever odd;
3. variety, in interests and attitudes;
4. enforced practicing of cooperation and consensus;
5. the ability to dissociate, it's a problem but also a benefit.
