different identities

there is the one i am externally

there is the one i am internally

 

there is the one i am with my friends

there is the one i am with my lover

 

there is the one i am with my family

there is the one i am with children

 

there is the one i am with new strangers

there is the one i am with old colleagues

 

there is the one who writes

and writes

 

there is the one who films videos naked

and charges money for others

 

there is the one who films videos for youtube

there is the one who made mash ups when he was younger

there is the one who makes art products

there is the one who plays piano
This ones better for the piano: https://youtu.be/Z8C8MbquZeQ

 

and there is the one, the same one, who exists all the time, throughout it all

 

many identities, but always the same person

 

this made me think about people with multiple personality disorder, or mind controlled slaves who have had personalities ingrained into them (known as alters) to serve different functions and roles in life.

one to speak business, one to be empathetic, one to be firm, one to take orders…

I realize that we all have these alters. It’s interesting that they’re all the same person, and that our relationships with others are based only on the slice of our person that they get to see.

The one which we become with them.

  1. Most of us have multiple identities hidden inside the same person. We are what we are as situations demand.

    You missed out the ones we are for ourselves, the inner child of the past sitting quietly with the inner person we are today. Sitting together.

    1. yes thank you! the one that’s been with you all along, your truth, the one that no one can tell you shit about, because it’s yours
