Happy One Year Anniversary

Happy One Year friendship Anniversary to my friends Red and Granny.

Last year, like every year, I surfed around a lot on wordpress looking at Christmas posts. I did the year before and the year before that.

Initially in 2009 I had left some comments in posts that I really really loved. Then I got upset, thinking they might come to my blog and read about me. The old stigma about being multiple and having a diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder got to me and I left fewer comments as time went on when I found a blog that was not abuse-related and/or blogger that I liked. In 2010 I didn’t really leave comments and I didn’t create a post about the Christmas posts that I liked.

In 2011 I really liked so many posts that I made up another post on my favorite Christmas posts with links and left some comments. The worry came back to me. I thought, well they will just have to accept that abuse happens, that people become multiple through abuse, and that I am multiple. After all that is what I am willing to do with other with survivor bloggers.

I thought, I am loveable, I am willing to take the chance that someone could visit my blog after I leave a comment and let them interact with me or not. I don’t have anything to be ashamed of because I am multiple. I don’t have to worry if someone wants to interact with me in advance, they can decide. It’s taken me a very long time to come to that belief, but here I am.

That is what happened. Today is the one year anniversary of my interacting with my friends Dirty Red, blog Relationsh*t and Granny, blog The Village Granny. Thank you beloveds. Your friendships are beautiful gifts and I treasure yous.

Happy One Year Anniversary.

  1. Aww, Kate! You have no idea how glad I am that you were knocking around the internet one day and found me. I happen to find YOU excessively lovable, and your posts, just like yourself, are wonderfully inspirational.

    And, if anyone ever decides not to be friends or doesn’t talk to you, because you’re multiple…they’re a horrendous douche-canoe and they’re not worth your time. Beyond that, anyone who touts themselves as completely “normal” usually has human body parts stored in their refrigerator.

    Real friends love you for everything about you. And, I definitely do. You’re a beacon of light for so many people. You’re awesome, miss Kate. And, don’t you ever forget it!

    Happy one year anniversary, dearest!!

    • Hello dear friend,

      🙂 Thanks so much. Your friendship always makes me feel so happy. I just realized, bizarrely, that friendship has the word ship in it. I wonder what kind of ship our friendship is? Hmm. Whatever kind of ship, it is a lovely one.

      Thanks so much, as always, for your sass, your intelligence, your honest words, and for your compassion and love you bring into the world.

      Good and healing thoughts to you.

      Love you,

      Kate

  2. Sweetie – How kind of you to remember. Your friendship is very precious to me as well.

    Never worry about putting yourself out there and being open to love. People’s reactions say more about them than they do about you.

    You are worthy and lovable, always.

    Happy Anniversary to us all!
