    I do it quite often, especially

    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.

    I imagine conversations in my head just

    so I have someone to talk to. They usually involve things that would never happen in my life just so I could feel good about something.

    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.

    Usually when I work I tell myself what I have

    to do, kinda like if my boss were telling me. Sometimes people will ask "are you talking to me?" Or "who are you talking to?" I find it amusing, it is how I best figure things out, but the downside is that I also call my self an idiot out loud when I do something stupid or just...

    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...

    Of Course I Do... We All Should....

    Self-talk, after all, is the key to changing your state of mind... controlling your emotions... reminding yourself that the thoughts and words you speak create your reality. I'm always good for a self-pep-talk. I remind myself daily that I'm right where I should be; tell myself...

    I do this all the time.

    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.

    Usually not out loud (just in case anybody is

    nearby). I always get so much done in my mind, and accomplish nothing in real life. I then return to reality and realize that I went nowhere, did nothing, and I'm alone in my room... with nobody to be with but family who are almost never around now... And when it comes to...
