Re: partners and headmates
My best friend had a walk in, years ago. It resulted in me leaving him... *deep breath* Bluntly, I hated it. I hated it so much. The walk-in spirit (who does, unfortunatly, have a name, but one I refuse to ever say), said some very nasty and personally insulting things to me, things I would never stand for anyone to say and not pay for. I let him do it. He was in my friend's body...and my friend was fighting so hard...How do I fight the spirit if it will just end up hurting the person I care most about? Maybe that was why the spirit saw that opporitunity to attack me, because of the safety principals I had. I reacted...not kindly, though as much as I could. Mostly, I set my teeth and took the guy's craven attempt at ungrounding me. I think I had a non-existant tolerance level for that because recently (at that time), it had happened to me in a way, and I was still recovering from it.
I know I'm not a multiple (and this situation is slightly different), but you wanted to know how loved ones reacted. And dear god, I loved him; I loathed the walk-in.
*snorts* My small advice, though? Don't make them angry, and don't attack them. The above situation is not good for anyone, especially if you have a coward like me for a best friend.
As a note to my friend who has access here...Now you really know how I feel about him. And don't make me talk about him, please.
“To his friends a man shall always remain a friend,
And return gift for gift;
Laughter for laughter let him return
And falsehood for lies.”
