    When Alone

    Other than when I was married for a few years, I have lived alone my entire adult life. I also haven't had many friends. I started talking to myself when I was home alone years ago. I learned to never do it around other people, it seems to make them uncomfortable.After my divorce...

    I feel its a good way to 'practice' what you

    would want to say to other people. The 'it sounded funnier before I said it' situation happens a lot less, which for me especially is a big deal. I also tell myself familiar jokes and rehearse memorable scenes from movies, as its something I find 'familiar' and can act as...

    I think it's pretty much a habit of mine to

    talk to myself lol! Especially when I'm bored or when I'm alone or feel lonely,I'll just look at the people around and talk to myself as if I'm having a convo with someone and I'll laugh sometimes. And I love to make random weird sounds out of the blue lol!

    I talk to myself because I'm usually alone most

    of the time. And if I don't talk during that long period of time my vocal cords aren't being exercised. When my vocal cords don't get exercised I can't talk very well or my tone becomes too low due to the lack of exercising those vocal cords. So you see; speaking to yourself...

    I tend to do this a lot

    because I'm a very shy/quiet person who suffers from Social Anxiety, Depression, and a Learning Disability. I have full conversations with myself when I'm alone or through writing. I believe I'm the only one that understands me and that gets me nobody else does. I don't know...

    when I'm a work. I don't know why but it's easier for me to figure out my own thought when I say them out loud.

    Who Are You Talking To?

    "What are you talking about mom?" "Who are you talking to?".... These are questions I hear all the time. Many times it brings me back to the real world not realizing I had gone off into my thoughts, working out a problem or rehashing some conversation I've had. So many times I...

    It's not crazy to talk to yourself,

    it's when you've got to ask yourself to repeat what you just said that your got to start worrying.

    I would like to believe that I'm not crazy, but sanity's overrated. I mainly talk to myself because it makes me feel less lonely.

    I talk to myself. Actually the amount I talk to

    myself increases the busier I am. I am quiet busy now. I have much to process and talking to myself tends to slow my thoughts down, so I can make sense of my thoughts.

    I do it on a daily basis,

    but not as in having a conversation with my self. I usually say what I'm doing or explain things as if someone else were there, but I know there isn't. I don't know why I do it, it's just become normal to me. I also tend to just think aloud, and just shout at random things.

    All the damn time. Alone,

    not alone. It's more like thinking out loud, really, which might actually be worse, because that tells you that there's at least two of me in my head. Probably more. I even talk to myself at work, when I forget someone might be listening.
