Yeah, sometimes I talk to myself when I'm angry with a person. That instead of confronting him, I just imagine that he/she is right there in front of me, you know, just to release the anger. But I do it alone in my room and most of the time, I do it in front of the mirror.

Sure I talk to myself, I read outloud sometimes when i am alone, and I will talk to commercials that are on tv... so this is very normal... but it is when you start to ask yourself questions and you start to answer them as well.. that is when it gets scary......this is what I have been told anyway!! LOL keep talking and happy mylotting!!

I felt guilty with this question. Hahahaha, Yes I talk to myself and sometimes I talk to nobody. Specially when i feel embarrassed, guilty, lonely and depressed. I usually ask myself questions and you know. =)) I also have this friend who talks to herself while playing with her hair. We keep teasing her until now for her habit =)) and to know that her course is psychology. :)) But we know that she is normal. This is normal for me because this is just a way of relieving ourselves from our emotions. Happy valentines to you

Hello GAGAN187, Sometimes when I am alone and something bothers me so much, I will talk to myself. There was one time when I was busy doing my house chores at home, I thought of the incident that happened between my boss and I and started to talk alone. My two years old son who was playing nearby, asked me in puzzle, "Mommy, what did you say just now?" I felt embarrassing really...

no, and yes..Sometimes, when i reflect about my actions that are far to silly, i will speak to myself, so that i can make myself feel that i speak louder, rather than self talk. But under no unnecessary i don't. If you feel comfortable, and know that u are talking to yourself, you are perfectly fine. If you really have something trouble you, then talk to yourself is fine too, to express yourself to yourself clearly.

There is nothing abnormal about it. It's called loud thinking.I do talk to my self occasionally . This is my way of giving a vent to my thoughts.

Hello GAGAN187! Well, there are times that I talk to myself, especially when I did something wrong. I would say to myself that I am so stupid, why I did this thing etc.

I talk to myself when I am alone, and sometimes when I am with my family or out shopping too. It's normal
