    I do it because I know it will scare someone

    or get them to respond in a specific way, not because I'm batshit crazy.

    Dude, if you were to have cameras watching me

    24/7 you would be creeped out because I have full conversations with myself. Like you know conversations you have with your friends and laugh and stuff. I'm not even looking in the mirror, I'm like walking around, cooking food, or whatever it may be I'm just having a loud...

    I hate when you're talking to yourself at

    school, and then you start laughing because you're so funny and everyone looks at you like you're insane.

    I feel like I have an abnormal way of talking

    to myself when I am alone, particularly at night. It seems like many people think out loud when they are talking to themselves. But in my case, I think before I talk. I often talk for 2-3 hours per session about twice a week. It is as if I am explaining situations to someone...

    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 enjoy talking to myself

    even if it does make me feel a little crazy. Its also pretty surprising how great the conversations are.

    Planning things, keeping stuff in my mind

    sometimes instructing myself to do something. But it helps if I am struggling to solve some things. I am a person who learns best with audio and talking myself is the best to solve whatever the problem is.

    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.

    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.

    People ask, " Are you talking to yourself?

    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.
