How to Address This
By: / Beginner
Post # 1

I have some friends I met in college. They're fantastic and I've only known them a few months. Magic wise, its a bit akward because I don't know how to respond to this:

Friend A: split personality disorder (not what I need help with), and possessed by Thanatos, at one point Eros, and a primordial Celtic god

Friend B: Shares a soul with his dead friend who committed suicide some years earlier.

I really don't know how to address this because while I can understand a lot of strange things happen in AP, this seems unreal and I'm a bit out of my depth here. Last time this happened, with a friend I use as a cautionary tale about AP, it didn't end well between us. I could use some advice on how to go about this. Is this a real thing? Can this happen? Are they being melodramatic teenagers?

Yeah that sounds pretty fantastic. When you already have a few personalities in your body, I can see it complicating things and maybe assuming you've been possessed.

The other friend also sounds pretty unbelievable; whether or not it is possible, I don't know. I DO know it sounds very unhealthy. If your friend is the one holding on, they need to let go, maybe go to therapy.

Due to strained family that doesn't believe in mental health, that isn't likely to happen with Friend B. And with Friend A, he treats the other entities possessing him as multiple personalities in that they "take control" every now and then, though he's said that his actual alternate personalities have shrunk down to just one, which would make total people in Friend A's head Friend A, Friend A', Thanatos, and primordial Celtic god guy.

Possessions are tricky in that many believe you can't be possessed and taken over. You allow yourself to let in entities and such but they don't control you. Most would question why any of these entities would want to possess a human form since it would restrict their abilities and function. Personally, it seems more like this is the reasoning Friend A has come up with to deal and understand their mental disorder. And there is nothing wrong with this believe or delusion, just understand it is their way of explaining their behavior. If it is someone else controlling them, they don't have to carry the guilt if they act out with bad or negative behavior. Many people with mental health concerns use deflection to help cope with it, especially if they 1, don't believe in mental health disorders and 2, aren't under medication management for said disorder.

As far as multiple personality disorder, that is also a very difficult diagnosis to achieve. The most recent DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders) does highlight a newer category which has combined several smaller areas into one disorder. Intermittentdysregulated mood disorder covers changes in behavior that can go from extremesin either form but highlights anger and aggression and one area often displayed. It would stand to argue that their moods and how they rapidly change out of their control, could be this area of mental health, than say multiple personalities, which is much harder to diagnosis.

Regardless, your inquiry was more so looking for truth to this. There is truth in everything, depending on how we interpret. I would doubt that this is just a melodramatic mood but that there is some sort of mental concern going on here.

As for Friend B, I personally do not believe in soul sharing. It isn't physically possible, however, there are many beliefs in twin flames, twin souls, reincarnation etc. With the passing of his friend, he may have a deep connection to him by stating they share a soul, simply because they are connected in some form. In past lives they could have been brothers, husband and wife, mother or father or anything with a significant connection. Now that one is gone, the other must complete this life cycle without them, which is hard as that connection can't be severed, so they feel disjointed or a rip in their reality. There is nothing wrong with them believing this but I think it is closer to having a connection directly with that soul rather than sharing one soul.

In any regard it appears that both Friend A and Friend B are unique individuals to have in your life and someone they will benefit from your friendship just as you will benefit from them. Hope this helps somewhat!

Good Luck!
