My thoughts exactly.
I always imagine NMM is a split personality but also essentially a coping mechanism for Luna’s loneliness(and bottling up how she feels) but also a defense mechanism to remove anything that is causing Luna problems.

This would have been an interesting take. Say Nightmare Moon is more like a construct of Luna’s mind she had made as her ‘friend’ when Celestia eventually got wrapped up in running the kingdom and left no time for her little sister. Said friend becomes the thing Luna clings to when more and more ponies ignore the work she puts into her night and protecting their dreams, and in her deepest moment of despair when she feels even her sister no longer loves her, Nightmare Moon takes over both to protect Luna from any further pain and to destroy Celestia in a misguided attempt to destroy what she perceives is the source of that pain.
