I don't know if this is an appropriate place to say that I envy you for having different voices inside of you.

I wish my different moods, motives, reactions, etc had some kind of organization.

I'm going to make a classical music analogy-

learning a Mozart violin concerto. Just me and my violin and some notes. I play the notes nicely. I follow the printed directions on the page... all is okey-dokey.

My teacher says: Mozart's PASSION was to write opera. Even in his instrumental work, there is opera. Listen to these different phrases (in the violin concerto). Who are THESE characters?

One phrase belongs to the heroine- a soprano. There's also a joker- the tenor, and a darker voice, the villain. All in my single violin part.

It's up to me to decide where one voice interrupts the other, and who behaves how with whom. Once I could figure it out, the music had so much more energy, meaning, color...

I wish my own thoughts were so organized. But then, I don't have a genius like Mozart planning out my thoughts in advance... Perhaps I cling too tightly to the notion of a single unified self. I know that conciousness is fragmented, even in the most normal mediocre minds, but somehow, we create this powerful illusion of having ONE voice, ONE self, despite evidence to the contrary.

I think you're brave to admit that there are conflicting characters in your inner "opera"
