We’ve all had those moments when we talk to ourselves. I have found that I talk to myself more living alone than when I lived with other people. For me, talking to myself often feels odd. Especially when I’m speaking something positive yet deep in negative feelings. When we do that, we are putting our current state of mind on hold, force a complete change of thought, and remind ourselves of the truth. For those of us that are verbal processors, we may find ourselves doing this more than others. But how often are those chats positive? Is your mind focused on the daily grind, milling through your daily stresses, tasks at hand, and the like? Perhaps you are beating yourself up about your latest mistake. Or… are you declaring the positive despite your feelings?
