    Too True

    I'm so glad I'm not alone.  My first thought when I'm beginning a conversation is that I'm nuts, and no one else does this.  It's totally organic for me.  I just begin a conversation---I furnish my own answers. Sometimes the conversation is meaningless crap a...

    Not sure if it's 90 percent, but it is quite frequently.  I even get strange looks at times.  I like to sing to myself too.  Should I be taking meds for that?

    I'm Glad I'm Not Alone!

    I don't intend to talk to myself. Its just that no ones there to really answer me. I like to say something and then cause a controversy with myself. Its a weird thing to get used to. I hope it doesnt sound stupid.

    Are You Talking to Me?

    My mother always told me that it was okay if you talked to yourself as long as you didnt answer yourself.  Well, never you mind that part.  I sometimes talk to myself in third person which is arguably....odd.  I also pretend that I am a celebrity when I am walking...

    Look, this is perhaps the absolute worst part

    of me, I have been talking to myself since I was maybe 8 years old. Maybe it's because grew up an only child and my mom worked a lot..my grandparents looked after me a lot and they weren't the most talkative bunch of people. This is going to sound crazier..But I also talk as if...

    I've talked to myself ever

    since I can remember... it's how I fall asleep at night. I like to place myself as a character into my favorite sci-fi of the time and just act out situations in my head speaking on behalf of all these characters... I know that sounds weird especially considering I'll do it not...

    No One, Mom

    Whether I am watching commertials on tv or I'm doing chores in the back yard, I always talk to myself. Well... Not me, more a figment of my imagination. I could talk to a friend from school or Emporer Caesar from history class. Now more and more my mom has taking a pesky interest...

    Talking to Myself Is Only Part of It.

    I have the luxury of Having my own space to Do what I want, When I want and How I want to do it. But I do more than talk to myself.  I cuss at people who pissed me off.  I laugh out loud at my Screaming Monkeys.   I talk back to my TV. ...

    So like, I daydream a lot

    when am bored. Which is almost everyday. And I wine up talking to myself. Sometimes even saying and acting like other people out loud and creating talks that I would like to have with people. Is it safe to say I need help?😅

    I've Been Told..

    I've been told that talking to yourself is a sign of intelligence.  Which if you think about it can be true since if you talk about serious things to yourself or use it to come up with a plan then that could very much be so! So yes talking to yourself is okay.

    I Have to Talk to Myself, It K...

    i have to talk to myself, it keeps me sane, I work with the public and if I said what I was thinking I'd get fired/lose business so I can't do that. Besides I think talking to yourself is really healthy, it helps you get things done--especially if you're an auditory learner.
