I couldn’t help but laugh when I came across this. “Guess what? Talking to yourself is actually a good thing.” Thank goodness. Otherwise they’ll be carting me off to the Funny Farm.
I’ve always talked to myself. For as long as I can remember. Out loud too. Not just in my head. The most embarrassing time I got caught though was one of Paul’s brothers walked in our house one day and asked me who I was talking to and I told him myself and he started laughing and said “that loud??” He cracked right up. What happened is that I’m really bad on confrontations and that day I happened to be “practicing” what I was going to say to someone. LOL!!!
I talk to myself all the time even when Paul is in the room. With him I have to repeat everything. At least when I talk to myself I don’t have to repeat everything. (When I talk to him he can’t hear me but when I whisper to myself he can so go figure!).
But they now are saying that when you talk to yourself it’s a good thing. I also know it’s true that when looking for something, talking about “it” or “to” it helps keep your mind focused on what it is you’re looking for so you’re less apt to walk into a room and forget why you went there (although that’s another post too!). For example, if I’m looking for my camera, I will talk to it and say things like “come out come out wherever you are camera.” I don’t know if it helps or not but I’ve always done it.
So do you do it? Or won’t you admit it? Do you do it in the car? Shower? When you’re alone or not at all? Do you have full conversations?? I do 🙂
