Talk to myself is actually normal for me... However, people may think that im quite weird... hahaha... Somehow, i dont care what people say that to me... But i have my reason why i talk to myself... I murmured to myself... and its my problem with my own world... If i will listen a song i can comment a lot about it... how its sounds, the singer, the melody or many things that may be annoying to other people (who may enjoy the song) while me... im just busy with my critics here and there... ahahah i dont know if its really annoying, but when it comes to other people doing the same thing that i do, i will feel that this person is annoyed! hahaha Mylotters- have you ever talk to yourself, but people listen what did you say? How frequent? What do you think about person who talk to her/himself, at the same time, you're enjoying the that thing... its just the critics that makes you feel uneasy... hehehe...

they say that people that talk to themselves are geniuses! so i guess i am one because i do talk to myself. as for me, i think it is because i am an only child and often had no one to talk to.

it normal i too have that and its like some one always looking us and i too talk with in me to do any work but try to do something like beating your lips gently when your thinking so that it does not come out when your thinking.because most of the time when you think you will get this habit and my advise to think less and it will fix this ok. :-)

Hey, Yea I usually talk to myself, but I don't really talk to myself out loud. I just whisper to myself if I am playing tennis or something and I am losing, but I hardly even get agitated myself, which I like about myself. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I talk to myself too, honestly. When I did something wrong and I am aware I tell myself "you fool", I think it's fine as long as no one is around. Because if someone sees you they might think you are nerd or you are talking to them. It happened way back just last week. I said to myself you are very ugly, someone respond to what I said because I am inside a restroom, she ask if I were talking to her. Good thing I have a earphone attached to my ear, I show it to her, and she went away hahahahahahaha, but truly I am not talking to someone that time, I just insulting myself in front of the mirror.

Hello my friend manya_pearl Ji, While I or even my hubby do not talk to our selves alone, I feel there is nothing wrong in talking to oneself. He or she may be satisfying oneself. Why others should get disturbed. I think, it is very much in order. May god bless You and have a great time.

lol, well it's not weird, but the weird things is happen when there is nothing to be laugh then suddenly you laugh by yourself it's normal, people have their own way to express themselves when they need to be alone, but personally i didn't talk to myself, i'm just keep in silence, and hearing music to get out from daily 'boring' activities

People probably think I talk to myself when I pray and they hear me praying. But I have heard people talk to them selves or imaginary things. I seen this lady arguing with whatever was around here. But know one seen anything around here. So we could think it could be only 2 things. Either she was nuts or talking to bad things. So we didn't stick around.

If you are an Engineering student that is normal. Because reviewing mathematics subjects is not easy, and we need more analysis. When doing an extra analysis on the problems. We need to talk to yourself that seems we have companion to solve the mathematical problems...That what I've done when I was an student, taking up Engineering. For me this is normal...but if murmured yourself together with laughter and some tears I thinks that is abnormal...or murmuring something that is strange to you and other people. I think you need to go an specialist for check up.

I actually tell people not to pay any attention to me. I will talk to myself daily to remind me what it is that I need to get done, and to go over my plans to do things. I will also talk to the food that I am preparing to make it taste yummy, and the equipment I use to make it work better(and you thought you were different). People can critique me all they wish, it is none of my concern what others think of me, only what I think of myself. And if they do happen to be listening that is fine, they can even ask me to repeat myself and I will tell them what I said, I have no shame to be the way that I am. Cheers.

I talk to myself all the time. I talk to myself, sing to myself, yell at myself, you name it, I do it. My kids think I am crazy, and I respond that I am my own best friend. Most people don't say anything when they hear me talking to myself as I am sure most people do the same thing.

when we talk to ourselves at least we are assured of an intelligent conversation!

I have talked to myself sometimes. Specially if I angry with something that I did not released. I just do it for myself to have my feelings of anger and pain in what I feel to flew it away. Also in successful undertakings I will talk happily with myself but I dont let people hear it. I will be shy for it. heheheh

Hi, don't worry and bother what people will think about you or not. Everyone murmurs to some extent. I think, it's the reflection of mind. It's quite normal. You have told that you have the reason to talk to yourself. Ok, fine! Are you a lonely person? Or do you have to pass long hours at home without any work to do? I'll suggest that you should engage yourself in work. Behave yourself and try to build confidence and power with you. At home it's o k but in the public place it's not o k, I think. People may think otherwise about you, it's not their fault. It's not desired to you also. With best wishes.

Those who critize or make fun are unaware that they too speak in mind to themselves

I do talk with myself sometimes but not as often as you do. Maybe because you dont have your family members or friends to talk to so you just talk to yourself. But dont make it a habit which seems to be no good. Lessen it and talk to others.

Even I talk to myself...I do it when I am alone and I want to take some decision...sometimes it's like I argue with myself about if doing this is good or doing that...I think talking you yourself is normal and I don't get annoyed if someone is doing that....

I am very talkative girl. Busy on phone most of the time. No one is free for me anytime and so I enjoy being myself, listen to music and enjoy my own world of thoughts and future plans. I do same thing as you do which helps me to feel that I am not at all alone and happy in my own way.
