kevin, mahoney and john.
so my boyfriend's always had an interesting way of thinking. he and i were arguing yesterday about something, and he seemed a little different. so i flat out asked him what had been going on inside of his head. i didn't expect to hear that there are two little irish men in his head: mahoney and john. i personally find nothing wrong with that. everybody thinks their own way, and everybody needs to accept and respect that. this situation isn't good, but it isn't bad, either; it's just real. i don't think that they need therapy or a doctor or pills. yes, i've begun to refer to kevin "they." i accept this, and that's okay. so i've gotten to know them.
in a nut shell, mahoney is the troublemaker. he's aggressive and completely overprotective to the ones he loves. john is a peacemaking realist. he tries to see the bright side, but he looks at things from a realistic standpoint. i've noticed when kevin gets worked up he gets an irish accent. he came over to the united states from ireland when he was five, but i rarely to never catch an accent. so i guess that's mahoney taking over.
i don't feel like this is something i need to let 'sink in,' because i'm totally okay with it. it's uncommon, but i love and accept him for who he, or they, are. so now i love all three of them. later last night he told me i was the first person he had ever told, and he appreciated that i didn't judge him. when you love someone, you have to accept every last part of them.
