Do you have parts of yourself that you're aware of and accepting of but cannot put together? accept them as one in one personality, self?

Hard to explain but, I'm pretty sure who feels this way can understand what I'm saying

I'm wondering if this is one root of prolonged DP

Woah one of my favorite questions ever, this is why I keep visiting this site haha!
Yeah I totally get u. I feel like I have multiple personalities, that all developed from different experiences. Some parts of me are very hard to accept.. maybe you think that you've accepted certain parts of yourself but subconsciously you don't so dp develops ? I developed dp a month after I did some stupid shit which made me despise myself for like 2 weeks so that makes a lot of sense.

Also something that I forgot to add is that out of all personality disorders the avoidant personality disorder is the one that’s most linked to dp. Followed by borderline personality disorder. That alone says a lot about how our brain operates. Your brains only goal is to protect you.. no matter what it takes. So when you get dp a part of yourself literally switches off.. the ego part. The other part is the observer. So now you’re left with the observer.. maybe it’s because your ego and your observer just aren’t compatible? Lol idk

The avoidant personality bit though! This disorder kind of describes my early childhood! Honestly it's crazy how people with this DPDR have so much in common such as other disorders and personality traits yet no one is taking that into account and investigating the correlations.

Hmm I guess you're probably right, they' might not accepted unconsciously. The human mind is so mysterious, kinda in a terrifying way lmao.

I have such differing 'personalities' that a while ago I completely freaked out about this developing into multiple personality disorders, especially that I then had developed some kind of commentary voice -that is mine- sort of just was there, and the thought intensified it.

I only calmed down after reading that MPD is classified as so having the person not being aware fully of the other personalities...

Wonder if integrating these parts with therapy would help, if it was possible to anyway..
