The Soul Family In My Head
I have always had people living in my head. I assumed everyone did until one day as a young girl I mentioned it to my mother. She told me that it meant I was crazy.
Well, I stopped talking about it. In fact, I never spoke about it to another living being until I reached a crisis point. I am a trauma survivor, just to give you some background information. I was in two very abusive relationships. The last one, took the cake and I didn't think I would even make it out alive. I made it, I am here.
Now about four years after I got out of my last abusive relationship, I experienced a re-traumatization while shopping in a convenience store. I got sexually assaulted by the clerk working there. What seemed like very small in comparison to all that I have lived through ended up being the tipping point that turned my world upside down.
I found that the people living in my head could also take over my body from time to time. Some more people joined me in my head after that last assault. I went through a huge spiritual awakening and ascension after a small (in comparison) existential/identity crisis. Amy, one of the people living in my head, told me, while I was struggling in a great state of denial, that it did not help me to believe that they are not real. She told me that they are real and they are here to help me.
I honestly don't know what I would do without any of them now. They are my family and I would not have it any other way.
