    I've done this all of my life,

    and for the longest time I felt like people would think I'm crazy or something. My therapist says this is part of my coping mechanism since I don't have a really good social network to have as a sounding board. I sort of feel a little awkward admitting it, but I'm told this is...

    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.

    Sometimes when there is nobody to talk to

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

    Yes. No. No, probably not.

    Well... Maybe. No. Nope! I just want to connect with someone else. Not just get along, not just friends or acquaintances, really connect. But with being as ****** up as I am, I doubt it will ever happen again... I want to be understood, and to really understand someone else in...

    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.

    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,

    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...

    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

    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...

    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 enjoy talking to myself

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

    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.

    that keeps me sane sometimes. As they say, sometimes you do need some expert advice. Well the truth is, I cannot be an emotional wreck and only I can remind myself about that. I know how hard I've worked to get where I am today and I'm not going to throw it all away. I love my...

    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 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.
