    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 all the time

    but like when I'm around others they just look at me as if I've gone crazy. They always be like Megan who are you talking to and I be like erm myself? But in all honestly I prefer talking to myself than to people I know won't listen.

    Talking to myself helps me think,

    otherwise if I don't verbalize my thought process, my mind wanders, loses focus, gets overwhelmed with the to do list.

    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...

    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

    have a different life than the one I currently had. I would lay down, close my eyes and imagine myself in a different reality. I was whatever I wanted to be with all of the characters in my head, I would laugh by myself and enjoy my own thought's company. To this day my...

    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

    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.

    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 have a running monologue with other people in

    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.

    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....
