What is thought withdrawal?

It's when one or more of us removes a memory from another alter. It's designed as either a defensive + protection, or private + separation.

The first pair is understandable and is why systems often are hidden from even themselves, it's designed as protective mechanism to segregate the trauma.

the second pair is what we're doing right now, this allows us to figure things out and develop with minimal influence from other alters. It's important for each of us to have our own time out and have the ability to spend time and have relationships without having other alters especially Cubes from being too self conscious or influencing the alter in certain ways.
