is this normal.?? - April 20th 2014, 04:34 PM

I am a single child with busy parents. Whenever I would feel lonely or sad, I would talk to myself. And I would end up feeling better. I am 19 now. And I still do it sometimes. These conversations are in my head but sometimes I do end up talking to myself loudly.!
Is this normal.? Or do I need help.!!?

Personally, I see this as normal. Sometimes when we want people to listen or talk to us but no one will, we tend to turn to ourselves for comfort. At least we know we'll listen and talk to ourselves, even if no one else will. Not forgetting that in our heads everyone has a conscience and sometimes it 'talks' to us and we talk to 'it' and we call it by our name and we feel like we're talking to ourselves because we're effectively reasoning with ourselves on the actions we have or are going to take. Talking out aloud can be similar and it's not necessarily limited to when we're feeling down like you've mentioned, but when we're carrying out daily tasks too. All kinds of people do it, there's nothing wrong it it providing it doesn't breach the boundaries of what is considered 'normal', which in this respect would be talking to someone who isn't there, who you think you can see and so on.

Life is for living, not for losing.

As long as you are fully aware that you are talking to yourself and you are happy with the "conversations" then yes, you are normal. I talk to myself. Most of the people I know tazlk to themselves at one point or another. And even as children some have imaginary friends which is pretty much the same since no one is really there. You have nothing to worry about. You are basically the same as someone writing in a diary but without the ink and paper. :-)
