Discussion topic: Good things about being multiple

Postby JigsawAnalogy on Mon Nov 03, 2008 11:52 am

I thought it might be helpful to people who are newly diagnosed to read a thread about the different things that are *good* about being multiple. So those of us who have been diagnosed for a while, maybe we can come up with some of the positives of this. You can say whatever you like, but try to keep it positive.

One of the things that is specifically useful about being multiple, for me, is that different parts are good at different things, and together, we're good at a whole lot of things.

Having the little kids around makes us more comfortable with stretching ourselves with things like art, because the little kids are more focused on process than on the end product, and by just deciding that things are worth doing just because they are fun, we wind up doing creative things that come out surprisingly well.
