Do You ever TALK to Yourself......lol

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

[deleted account]

You know, some of the best conversations I've ever had have been with myself. I don't argue, I always agree with me, I don't talk back and, best of all, I'm always right :P

Of course! That's the only way I get any sane conversation in my house...lol But seriously, I'm usually walking around chanting mantra to myself like, don't forget loo roll/you went upstairs for the suncream/hairbrush/toilet etc... Don't panic it's normal! x

I find myself talking more and more to myself because apparently my kids have all gone deaf haha they have what I believe is called "selective hearing" they also tend to walk away in stores and I turn to look towards them while talking, only to discover they're not there any more. (my kids are older) so along with talking to myself at home, the rest of the world believes I'm a crazy person who talks to myself out in public as well, I can thank my kids for that.

It's okay, I do the same thing myself. A lot! ...Just don't answer back to yourself. What we're doing is actually talking it out loud whatever we have in mind. It just gives you a better perspective .

It's not call talking to yourself, it's called thinking outloud.  And yes I do it all the time.  sometimes things make more sense when it's said outloud.  Jo-Anne

Hi Gina, I agree with you, and that's what I do most of the time, I do try hard not to answer myself though...lol .............it's hilarious !!



Quoting Gina:

Dear Gloria: I have been talking to myself for absolute years, when you start answering yourself than it is time to get a bit of a reality check, lol. Seriously though, talking with oneself gives you a bit of insight as to what you are really thinking. Take care and remember that you are never lonely if you have yourself to talk too.

Karen, while reading your responce.........I  was just a Giggling, ur hubby's somethin else...LAUGH OUT LOUD :)!!!!!!!!

 



Quoting Karen:

I can honestly say I don't... but my husband does and I crack up laughing at him cuz he talks with his hands!!! We will be driving down the road and he'll shrug his shoulders or flip his hand like he's talking with it. But the best was the other day... we snuck out for a ride on our Harley to the beach and the entire 45 min. ride there he must have been having quite the conversation with himself cause he was shrugging, etc. the entire time... and I was on the back of the bike giggling my butt off!!!

What this world needs is to not only the talking with oneself, but also dance and sing like there is nobody there. Life is to short to worry about the small stuff and have yourselves a great day. from me to you.

I've always heard that talking to yourself is good, answering yourself is too but when you say, "Huh?" - that's bad! ;-)


I lost an arguement with myself just this morning because I couldn't understand myself properly. Should I be worried? ;-)

HAHAHA...of course!!!! I usually don't see very many people...I usually clean better when I have something to vent about, either an argument or what I would like to say to other people. You know what is even worse...when you run out of things to say! :)

Yep. I can carry on in the car. Just when I come to a stop light I try not to talk so people won't know I'm talking to myself.

Absoluntelly! lol. I think it can be healthy. It's better that keeping things bottled up. What's really bad is when someone walks in and hears you. My family thinks I'm nuts. I tend to agree with them. lol.

I think everyone talks to themselves. I just have a little advice though. It's ok to talk to yourself. Ask a question and answer it. Just make sure you don't say huh! lol...I talk to myself all the time. I think it might be one of the many things that keeps me sane.

I have always talked to myself...use to drive my staff crazy as they could hear me muttering under my breath.

[deleted account]

Talking to yourself is normal.
Arguing with yourself is borderline.
When you lose the argument, start worrying!

ALL THE TIME! I have a very vivid imagination so when I'm making supper I imagine cameras and a studio audience...it's something my hubby pokes fun at but hey, I'm so used to something going on constantly that it's just weird to me when it's quiet.
