Many a young person tells me that he wants to be a writer.I always encourage such people，but I also explain that there's a big difference between “being a writer” and writing.In most cases these individuals are dreaming of wealth and fame，not the long hours alone at a typewriter.“You've got to want to write，” I say to them，“not want to be a writer.”
The reality is that writing is a lonely，private and poor-paying affair.For every writer kissed by fortune there are thousands more whose longing is never rewarded.When I left a 20-year career in the U．S.Coast Guard to become a freelance writer，I had no prospects at all：what I did have was a friend who found me my room in a New York apartment building.I immediately bought a used manual typewriter and left like a genuine writer.
After a year or so，however，I still hadn't gotten a break and began to doubt myself.It was so hard to sell a story that barely made enough to eat.But I knew I wanted to write.I had dreamed about it for years.I wasn't going to be one of those people who die wondering，what if? I would tting my dream to the test—even though it meant living with uncertainty and fear of failure.This is the shadowland of hope，and anyone with a dream must learn to live there.

According to the box office，congratulations are in order.It seems your new movie，Split，is doing gangbusters.That means millions of people all over the world have seen or will soon see your story about a man who is suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder(DID)．
As much as I'm rooting for you as an artist，Mr.Shyamalan，personally，I thin climbed to success on the overburdened backs of the mentally ill.
As a person who suffers from multiple(多面的)personalities，as well as a psychologist with professional knowledge and skills in the subject，I feel it is my duty to school you in a few facts：People who suffer from DID are not，generally speaking，scary or cheating.We are normal people who silently suffer from a painful condition in which our sense of who we are feels divided into broken parts.Our condition is often caused by a history of severe and repeated child abuse.In truth，we are victims of unimaginable violence.
With the release of your movie，you have become my bully(恃强凌弱者)．I am personally harmed by the absurd fixed image you use in Split.Your description of Kevin Crumb as one more gender confused，cross-dressing multiple with a liking for violence has the same effect as shouting across the playground，“People with DID are dangerous nut jobs！”
I have lived for years with the shame created by movies such as yours.Despite being a successful doctor who runs a charity for adult survivors of child abuse，I live with constant anxiety that people will learn of my diagnosis(诊断)．For no matter how long I've known someone or how highly they think of me，once they know I'm a multiple，the reaction is imaginable.
In the future，I'd appreciate it if you stopped using our pain and suffering as materials for your entertainment.
