The Alter Ego, in Latin, literally means “Second I” or “Second Self”. It can refer to an opposite side to the personality within someone, or a counterpart like a trusted friend.
More info on the history of the Alter Ego, as well as alternate meanings here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alter_ego
•Share a picture of your alter ego, whether it be your best friend, or a version of you that others don’t often see
•… or make up your own prompt related to the theme!
Me, Myself, and I
My basic make-up is bashful, big, clumsy, kind, loving, nature-loving, nostalgic, obvious, restless, sad, shy, tongue-tied, tortured within, and whiny. My alter ego is beautiful, devoted, calm, funny, glamorous, happy, joyful, peaceful, smart, sure of herself, talkative, and a winner.
I am a Gemini, so by nature, I have two sides, two personalities, ego and alter ego.
Me is the part I try to keep hidden deep within. Me, the anxious, big, clumsy, depressed, obsessive, scaredy-cat that tries to hold all the grief, pain, and sadness within. That, me, that would never put her thoughts on paper for the world to read, criticize, and rip-apart.
I, who is beautiful, bold, calm, confident, funny, and smart. Very few actually see ‘I’, but she doesn’t care a bit what others say or think. I, pours out the words in her head for all to see and read. I, allows ‘me’ to pour out some of my heart, a little at a time.
Myself is a mixture of the two and the one people most often see. She is the true alter ego clinging to ‘me’s’ basic make-up, but only letting ‘I’ show through when needed.
It all makes perfect sense to me. I hope it makes some sense to you.
I have to ask which part you have seen most in me?
