    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...

    I talk to myself all the time,

    it's a thing that I do. I've created this figure in my head I talk to, I've given it a face and a name, even a personality. Every time I talk to it it feels like I'm talking to a real person, I never realize it's just myself. It gives me comfort. A product of my loneliness...

    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...

    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...

    Sometimes when there is nobody to talk to

    talking to yourself is better then nothing. At least I don't always answer myself.

    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...

    You are fine until you start to agree with

    yourself. Then you have clearly gone insane as even your own mind doesn't want to stop you.

    I only do it when there's a lot of information

    to process; it really helps to process with multiple senses. And I never respond to myself like there's a whole different person there.

    It all started when I was a humble lab tech

    working in a Granite Lab. I worked alone and I thought I going to start talking to myself. So now I still do even when other people around. I don't have schizophrenia, I just talk to myself sometimes.

    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

    Yes I do all the time.

    Sometimes I don't realize I do it. Other times I do and I talk out loud. People give me funny looks at times but I don't care. Its fun having conversations with me. I think that's why I like myself so much. Because ewe just seem to get along and I always win in an argument lol

    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.
