Dear Self Talker,
It’s OK to talk to yourself when you’re alone. Many people say things to themselves like, “I can do this,” or, “I have nothing to wear!” or, “Why hasn’t he called?” or, “I can’t believe school’s about to start.” As long as your solo conversations are not long-winded, there’s no reason to worry. On the other hand, try to rein it in a bit (since this habit bothers you), and try to spend more time with friends (so your monologues can become dialogues). How about starting a diary? Diary writing is a great way to express your thoughts and feelings.
