    I have the tendency to talk to myself

    when agitated or excited and alone. It's been a growing habit of mine since high school. It's not like I'm going crazy or anything. It's kind of my way of expressing myself when there's nobody around. It's a little embarrassing to think about, but I get a weird sense of...

    I have full conversations with myself I ask

    myself questions then answer them and I don't have to worry about people misinterpreting what I say since sometimes I have a had time explaining what I mean.I even have inside jokes with myself.

    One time my brother's girlfriend thought I had

    a boyfriend because she heard me talking and laughing loudly in my room. In reality I was just talking to myself. Yes, I am dating myself.

    When I cannot put certain situations into words

    in order to tell people, I talk to myself and it usually helps to find the right words.

    One morning I was in Walmart,

    it was like 6am & the store was quiet. So I was standing at the end of an aisle with a picture frame display. I was staring at the frames & wondering "out loud" to myself which frames I should buy. Eventually I noticed a maintenance man on a ladder in front of the aisle where...

    Mainly to get whatever's off my mind,

    but most just to somewhat discuss things. At first at was kinda worrying but it does make me feel better saying it out loud.

    I set up a phone number with google voice

    and I text myself. Often. I'm my own BFF, lol :). I text myself things I would never tell anyone else. I have to say it's totally heightened my self awareness, and I'm amazed at how kind my Self is to me, even on my worst days.

    It's a weird habit. I do it

    when I'm alone and I just read a story or watched a show and I start role playing with myself and the neighbors always complain about me screaming. Oops XD

    My barometer is not working.

    I thought it was. It feels like I'm bothering people. No one to really talk to right now.

    I sometimes talk to myself

    and act out my thoughts too! It's entertaining, but really embarrassing when it happens in public! Imagine a girl who smiles or laughs when looking at the ground, the sky, clothes, etc.; or that suddenly has a shocked or confused expression. Yup, that's me. :D

    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 talk to myself so often,

    it comes to the point where my parents think I'm hiding a boy in my bedroom. it just helps calm me, and I amuse myself so much, I swear I could become a comedian. it gets bad when I start doing it at school and people give me strange looks, can't a girl have a conversation with...

    I am the only person's judgement

    that I can handle. Talking to myself helps level me out and calms me down at times.

    Today is tomorrow. I thought of this phrase

    while I was procrastinating. It sorta motivated me to get more things done. It should be a crime to waste time, or litter your mind with other peoples opinions about how you should be, or to drown in self pity.

    All the time. Thank goodness

    for cell phones and headphones. At least now when I am walking down the street babbling away, people may assume I'm talking on the phone.
