    Babe, it's about the time we start picking

    pieces and putting them back together. Life's never fair and easy but we have to move on. Move forward and make a difference how small and painful it is. Just breathe when everything seems too overwhelming. Be strong. Hold on. me

    Actually, I'm talking to the TV (same

    difference). I'm kind of a news junkie, but lately the stories being covered and the spin being put on them are just plain annoying in my view. We have the ongoing (never ending) political campaigns.Donald Trump: what a bombastic self centered loud mouth! Hillary Clinton...

    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.

    I always talk to myself,

    especially when I'm in the bathroom ..... everywhere I do it, and once when I was riding a bicycle a woman saw him and asked, who are you talking to? Hahahaha, it was very funny, because so she would not think I was crazy, so I said: I talk to spirits, so she was soon though...

    I can't sleep at nights.

    I feel anxious and I need to go out to the street or the yard and start to walk in circles while I talk to myself for hours. Just repeating the same things. Is not that I don't have friends, it's just that they wouldn't understand what's inside of my head.

    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.

    When I have the house to myself,

    I pace the kitchen and talk to myself. I think the neighbors are beginning to think I'm schizophrenic even though I'm not.

    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 started talking to myself during the second

    year of my marriage. Long time ago....I got married to a guy who didn't enjoy talking to me. Things that were of an interest to me have never mattered to him, I remember continuous : "Why are you telling me this?" questions. and I stopped talking to him. I know that I had to...

    I talk to myself all the time,

    it's a daily thing. I don't spend a great deal of time around people anymore. I feel I paid my face to face talking dues in my last job s I tend to avoid it if possible. So my talking to myself has reached a new high of ridiculousness. I'll argue with myself, reason with myself...

    One morning I was in Walmart,

    it was like 6am & the store was quiet. So I was standing at the end of an aisle with a picture frame display. I was staring at the frames & wondering "out loud" to myself which frames I should buy. Eventually I noticed a maintenance man on a ladder in front of the aisle where...
