I saw this sign/meme on a DID page on Facebook. I thought it was kind of funny, and kind of sad, and really true. It’s the main reason I don’t like to go “inside” to work without someone who can help – I’m ashamed to admit it, but sometimes I am a bit afraid of getting lost. For me, that means that maybe the main “me” that is up gets submerged while someone else comes up and takes over and does things without my knowledge or consent.
I was also thinking about Yeshua’s words to His disciples (that includes me) about losing our lives. He said:
“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. (26) If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.” John 12:25-26 NKJV
This helps me in a way that most might not think of if they didn’t have DID; I can never truly get lost “inside”, though I might get “misplaced” or waylaid or delayed, because I belong to Yeshua/Jesus! And nothing can separate me from His love! He has placed His angels inside to watch over the many personalities of “me”, over all my alters, and He is helping me learn to overcome as we go through my system together.
I know no other way to help those who have SRA/DID except to involve Yeshua/Jesus. He is the one who created us with the ability to dissociate in the first place. He created this mechanism within us to save our lives. So this is no surprise to Him! He is the one who made it so He will teach us how to navigate it, no matter the booby traps or other nasty surprises the evil ones have put in there. HE ALONE IS THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! JESUS ALWAYS WINS!!
If you, too, have SRA/DID, please lead your alters to Yeshua/Jesus so He can give you HIS life! That is the best way to safeguard your life, and to ensure that eventually you will become whole. If you need help learning how to do that, please feel free to drop me an email.
