BM trying on different personas
I'm going to have to see BM at a ceremony at skids school next week and I am nauseous per usual, but also curious as to her current persona.
When DH and I first started dating, BM was dating a musician, so she was going to rock concerts, quoting bands, wearing a short, edgy haircut with purple highlights, leather jackets, etc. They bought a house together, then suddenly someone else showed her attention and she promptly moved out.
New guy is a sports and outdoor activity fanatic. Now BM wears fedoras, has sports team bumper stickers on her vehicle, thinks she is the coach at all of SS's games (literally gallops up and down the sideline, shouting instructions to the team)... and kayaks.
She found out I was taking SD to church... DH and SS haven't been going. It is truly my weekly sanctuary.
Anyway, upon information and belief, she is now declaring herself to be spiritual, sage cleanses and posting old Native American mantras... things of that nature.
Not to make a bold claim about a woman I don't know too well, but I feel she has no idea who she is and that is a large part of why she cannot effectively communicate. I definitely had phases where I tried on different personas, but by my early 20's I started to develop a sense of self.
Anyone else see this type of behavior?
