    I do it all the time

    when I'm alone. If I did it in public, people would think I was nuts. But no matter. I always pretend I'm talking to another family even though it's me.

    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.

    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

    After all, I spend all of my time with myself.

    I might as well make an effort to like myself.

    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...

    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 I pretend someone else is there

    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....

    I have great conversations with myself.

    We talk about life, about bettering ourselves and we get emotional about things. I also argue against myself too. It's a bit like Smeagol/Gollum sometimes but not that extreme.

    Thank god I am not the only one!

    I've been talking to myself out loud for as long as I can remember. It helps me de-stress, although initially I thought it was a sign of madness. Its good to know there are others like me too! :)

    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...

    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

    Due to the lack of people with whom i can have

    a real conversation in english, i tend to fill that position myself. It's mainly just thinking out loud and i do it when i'm alone or when no one's paying attention since i don't want people to think i'm cuckoo up in here.

    Since I was young I enjoy having conversations

    with myself. Sometimes it's just me scolding myself or I pretend there is somebody asking me questions and I imagine myself in different scenarios of my life, sometimes in the future and where I'd like to be. Maybe I'm insane but I like to trick myself thinking that having a...
