Talking to yourself?

Every once in a while, we find our selves in silence. After some more time, we then, find our selves talking... TO OURSELVES. This happened to me, I just realized I was talking alone and speaking of my plans in life. How about you? Have you done this? What are the things you were saying to yourself? It's not crazy but this is true, right?

hehehehe.... that sounds funny... and i am laughing like anything,..... you know why ...simple..i used to think that I am the only one crazy in this whole world... but no atleast I have one more friend.... (no offence please)Hey friend, I too talk a lot to mahself.... infact I talk the most with mahself only... and by the time now I really love it... why? Coz i am most comfortable with myself... its not that I am an introvert, or I dont go out and dont meet people -- but then after meeting the whole world, I find myself a unique blend of everything -- I do get compliments from the ppl that I am god in so many things and that my thoughts, deeds and actions are really good, but then I don't find people accoring to my thoughts -- according to my needs.... and so I prefer myself -- I guess I am not doing anything wrong.... Many a times I refer to myself like this -- "Hey Ketan why are you not studying, don't you know that your xams are near-- its better you get lost from here and get down to the books" -- hey you people stop laughing on me now.... Well I really love talking to myself and that is something I enjoy too... So do I have another crazy partner with myself....?

Yes, sometimes i start talking with myself making plans on what i will do tomorrow or later at the day, and i'm just talking alone, i do most of this when i'm in shower, or don't got nothing to do... Sometimes i also start talking with myself on what i will need to do to something work or something like.. It's weird haha :)

I talk to myself all the time. I talk to the computer, to my cat, to the TV... there's no need to sit in silence when you can fill it up. besides, vocalizing thoughts helps me keep everything organized. Or if I'm working through something in my mind, vocalizing it often makes it clearer. I also talk out loud to myself if I'm giving myself a pep-talk.

Well, most of the times now, at work, I find myself talking in front of my computer. Analyzing issues and matters allowed makes me hear what I'm saying and thinking. I helps me at work actually. ^_^

I have found myself talking to myself sometimes. Mainly when I am happy or mad. I am home by myself alot and only have the doggie to talk to. Sometimes I will talk out loud so I can remember things better. I also talk to the dog sometimes just to give him attention. My husband and my daughter are away during the day so it leaves me alot of free time on my hands.

Oh, yeah, I do this alot. Mostly just saying what I'm thinking outloud. Sometimes I'm not completely aware that I'm doing it. MOre than once at work, I have suddenly realized there someone in the room with me when I thought I was alone, and I am not sure if I have been talking to myself or not! Sometimes, I will just ask the person if I was and then try to explain it, to demonstrate that I still have some sense of reality. Luckily, I work in a profession that is more tolerant of "wierdos" so I think no one really even notices when I do this. :-)

it's not crazy, not at all! i think everyone does, at some point. and i think it's healthy. helps you a lot. especially during down times when you have no one to talk to... or you just decided to analyze what you're going through.

It's not crazy, it's natural. I talk to myself every now and then, when I'm bored or when I just feel like talking. My mom and grandma talks to themselves a lot too, I've noticed.

Well I do that all the time and I am not ashamed to admit it. Infact it has helped me to make difficult decisions in life. I am my own best friend because whatever secrets you tell to yourself you can keep them but in a case of a friend, it is just a matter of time and circumstances that the secret gets out. I have had a lot of experience in this so I know what I am talking about. I also debate with myself too because it helps me look at things with two different perspectives

Its true that we sometime find ourselves talking even when we dont speak out but we do talk within our minds.So talking is always a must, and we do it without taking account of what we do or sometime to consule ourselves or to put our mind set in the right direction.Talking to our selves depends on the situation we find ourselves,though we may be talking in a positive or negetive manner,most importantly we just feel we talk.

I do this all the time. I have a high-stress job in downtown Boston which I commute to and from by walking. Usually you can see me walking home swearing under my breath about my day. It must be a funny sight for other passer-bys. The worst is when you talk to yourself or about yourself when others can hear you and you have no control over it- like when you're sleeping. I often tell my boyfriend stories about things that I don't even recall the next morning- thank goodness he has a good sense of humor about these things.

I talk to myself quite often, it helps me think things through. My train of thought bounces around so often that if someone overhears me they usually have no idea what I'm talking about. It's when I start mumbling to myself that people leave me alone because they know I'm really mad about something.
