    I have this weird thing I do.

    .. I have a tendency to talk to myself and have conversations with myself and pretend I have someone else I am talking to... I've been doing This since I was a kid but recently I do it quite often without realizing it...I believe it's tied up to my social anxiety but I don't know...

    When I type something I always proof read it to

    make sure it make sense. Well sometimes if it doesn't make sense or it sounds harsh I'll be like "no no I shouldn't say that" then I cut out a few parts and alter it a bit. I used to do it in Highschool alot and I even had to take tests in the halls for being a distraction.

    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.

    Haha this might sound crazy

    but 40%percent of my day I spend talking to myself. The thing is the way I talk to myself is I imagine someone interviewing me, asking me how I see this or that (any topic) as if I'm being recorded on TV or on youtube!:p

    I find myself "narrating" what I'm doing

    sometimes. I feel it makes it easier to focus.

    I treat myself like I'm a different person.

    I often have debates with myself, get mad at myself, and I even have different opinions. Conversations with myself could go like, "Haha are you serious? Did you really just do that?" "Yes! I'm sorry! Stop laughing at me, I couldn't help it!" I do enjoy my own company.

    I guess I just tend to treat my life like a

    sitcom sometimes. Sure people look at me like I'm nuts when I zing a one-liner to myself, but I'll tell you this much: life gets so much more interesting that way. Right? Hmm... Maybe I'm talking to myself again right now lol

    Well..

    With people or without people I talk to myself very time, heck I even crack jokes with myself. It gotten weird to the point I would talk to myself in third person or talk to three of me at the same time. Thats what I get for basically being almost alone in my entire life...lol

    I have a running monologue with other people in

    my head. Sometimes I like to phrase the words properly, see how they sound and come together, gauge how it will be perceived, what my response might be. Other times words just pop into my head and it's a struggle to keep them from popping out. Really inappropriate stuff...

    It's more of a debate,

    than a talk. I'm not sure who wins though, me or myself. In the end it only confuses me more.

    I mainly talk to myself

    because I'm a planner at heart so I like to plan out what I'll say on the phone or maybe in a conversation with someone. I think I don't like not being prepared for multiple possible outcomes. Maybe it's that fear we all have of the unknown. I also talk to myself because I...

    for me to talk to, instead of myself. I'll think of different versions of the same conversation. But it's embarrassing when I do at work and I get weird stares from customers.. Sigh....

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with talking

    to yourself...as long as nobody hears you. But once you start laughing too,...yh..that's just how you realise you've got a couple of loose screws up there.

    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...
