THE GOOD: Twin leaves – there aren’t many, so in Photo Shop I “made” one for you
From my little nieces in Holland I know
Twins say things at the same time, make a gesture or facial expression at the same time
they finish each other’s sentences. As toddlers they talk to each other in bed and sing
each other songs. If one is happy, the other is happy too- if one is sad, you have two
sad little people. If one is loud, the other is not quiet.
They seldom fight and cover for each other in school, or anywhere else.
THE RANDOM: Research says that they tend to choose a twin as a mate, or brothers or sisters.
When one of the twin dies at birth, the surviving one, feels this void throughout their lives,
even though the latter one does not know he or she is a twin.
For WARM HEART: I cherish the therapeutic work with some of my (previous) twin-like clients,
which I cannot be specific about, because of confidentiality, except that they are dear to my heart.
As a therapist I know
Twins are two with one mind. They are a mirror of each other.
Some people are not twins, but have the same internal drive to look for their “twin” in relationships. It is stronger that what is normally referred to as “soulmate.” Several psychologists, like Winnicott have written on this. The theories pale by the experiencing this in the therapeutic relationship. since they start mirroring the therapist in terms of clothes, hand gestures, etc.
Front Door Castle Fraemelaborg ( in province Groningen, Holland) and two kinds of fences. Went here with the grandparents of the twins. Many things are symmetric , reminding me on twinship
THE FUN: Why is it important to know if you are wired internally to look for a twin?
If you are, don’t look for a person with opposite characteristics to spend your life with. You’ll end up unhappy. Look for one who mirrors you, internally or even externally
A mirroring is a reflecting relationship. Different from narcissism, whose love is in self, not the other.
(the clue is relationship)
How do you know if you like a mirroring relationship? A telltale sign is that you don’t like, or even avoid people with a different lifestyle, viewpoint, clothes. The saying “opposites attract each other” is definitely not in your book! Other “signs” are: liking people who dress the same, complete your sentences or thoughts, and like similar strengths and weaknesses.
How do you know if you are not looking for twinship?
Even though you may like similar styles in clothes as your friend(s) – which maybe a form of peer pressure, or a feeling of belonging – you have a different mindset and View of life.
Twinship is not a good or a bad thing – just handy to know why you like to be the same, or different from someone else:)
Twin or no twin, you’re good!
