Re: Questioning Yourself
When I was younger and had a multiple system, I had no idea what was going on. For the longest time I thought it was merely that I had gone crazy. I became incredibly paranoid that somebody was going to send me to an asylum to get me "fixed" -- even if the people *were* fake, I had absolutely no intention of getting them removed in such a way.
But there's only so much I can dismiss as craziness. One could see the future, for example, and her predictions were (and have remained) accurate. I also could not deny the effect she had on *me* whenever she came to the front -- it was such a feeling of painful anguish that I had never known before. I doubt I could make such a thing up.
Now I acknowledge that my intuition points me to the fact that I am otherkin. Rather than nitpick at this observation, which is about as basic an you can get, I instead poke at the qualities I have *because* I am an otherkin. I test if my phantom limbs have an effect on everyday people, I test if certain kinds of energies don't feel right to me, I test *everything* I can that is observable in some way, but I will take the fact I am otherkin as a truth until evidence points elsewhere. A lot of what I've tested points me in the direction that I *am* an otherkin, if only that the reactions of non-kin humans are not the same as my own, even if you look at the data subjectively.
