Re: Do you talk to yourself?

A long time ago I read that the one thing you'll believe the most is what you hear yourself say.  To that end, I will say aloud such things as, "The door is locked;" "Yes, I turned off the stove;" "The garage door is down;" etc.  

Instead of calling it talking to myself, I call it Coaching Myself.  

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

Re: Do you talk to yourself?

@pprmntstx I'm 72 and have done it all my life. As a child at times it was the only normal "conversation" I could have due to the toxic parents I had.

 

I am able to work out problems I have or think things through very well when talking about them aloud, to myself.

 

I also find I think very clearly in the shower! I have no idea why.

Re: Do you talk to yourself?

 I was a rare stay at home mom...when my children were smal Dr. told me that I should "Talk" all day...example.....Well mommy is going to start the wash now, then we will have a snack...etc. Helped with their verbal development...and look at the child as much as possible when speaking....face to face

 

My children are grown, and are successful...Doctor and School Principal...I thought that was good advice so many yers ago...kept me sane too!!

 

Today when alone...hubby out or working in the garage...I revert back to my sream of conciousness chatter....

Re: Do you talk to yourself?

Oh yes I sure do!  It's when I start answering myself that I get concerned!

Yup.  Was doing it today, when I was looking for a book I had misplaced. "Where the heck did I leave that darn thing?"!!!

Yes.  There is saying that goes, " Of Course I Talk To Myself, Sometimes I Need Expert Advice."

Of course I talk to myself; I just probably talk to my cats more.
