Is Talking to Yourself Considered Normal?
I remember once I was sitting in a classroom and talking quietly to myself, as I usually do. A couple of my classmates came up to me and said: "Why are you talking to yourself when there are so many people around? You must feel pretty lonely and outcast, huh?" And I answered that I wasn't. That is the absolute truth.
To me, the conversations I have with myself are the most intelligent ones. Besides, it increases my problem-solving ability and I manage to come up with interesting ideas. And that's what counts, right?
On the other hand, I also see the negative impacts on my life that talking to myself has. I'm the kind of person, who can walk in the street with arms flying in different directions, emotions clearly showing on my face, evil giggles coming out of my mouth, and I wouldn't care. But I notice that people around me stare strangely. Sometimes it bothers me, because I am worried about my image. What would you think of a girl who walks around the center of the city while talking to what appears to be an imaginary friend? Crazy!
Soooo... I don't know. Don't know whether I want to somehow deal with this problem, or go on living the way I do and talking to myself whenever and wherever I want to. But one thing I know for sure. Talking to yourself is suuuure more entertaining to me than talking to most of other people... tee-hee-hee ^_^
