Question I talk to myself... - April 14th 2010, 02:30 PM

I think i might b going insane... Today at four in the morning i snuck out of my house and went to the park... I sat there for about an hour on a swing in the dark, talking to myself. I mean, it's strange. I could do it for hours and then at one point realise "shit, i'm talking to myself" and mostly i talk about how fucked up the world is and that no one is down to earth person.
When the sun started coming up, i started taking pictures (i'm a photographer) Suddenly i get a call from my mother and she is screaming into the phone "melody where the hell are you!!!"

And when i tell her where i am, she calls me crazy... I mean, i know i might be a bit strange, but i'm an artist... I write poetry and photograph... And i get my insperation when it is dead quiet and no one else is there... i have these strange dreams and i really think i'm going insane. And my art is changing so much... every poem is more depressing then the last... I mean... I dont wanna be crazy

Stay forever lovely

Hey there Melody,
Lots of normal people talk to themselves - OK, there's no such thing as normal, but I talk to myself a lot and I'm doing OK! Perhaps it's just another way of expressing your feelings. I mean, writing and drawing and photography are forms of expressing yourself and they are in no way related to insanity. Talking to yourself may just be a way of letting your feelings out when you're not sure who to turn to. Maybe it's comforting to talk to somebody about the world, even if that somebody is yourself.
It's good that you've noticed these things and if you're really concerned about them you could talk to a doctor. But don't mistake self-expression with mental health problems - everybody needs a way to let their feelings out. It may just be a way of coping with the world and there are many other people who take a similar approach to you.

I always talk to myself, I was talking to myself when reading this thread lol. I don't have full on conversations with myself but I do in my head. I also kind of "talk" to other people in my head, I know they aren't there but I just kind of do it. It has never effected me badly so I don't really worry about it

I talk to myself all the time. And I'll walk into town or to school skipping along singing to myself. Everyone stares at me for it, but I know I'm not crazy. And its the funniest thing when the old ladies stop and stare at me alarmed, looking like they think I'll kill them. You're not going insane, trust me x

Where there's love, there's hope
You cannot destroy me!

I guess I'm the first one that doesn't do self-talk. If you find yourself talking to yourself and you don't realize you're doing it, and It's been an hour? You might need to see if everything is okay.

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

I've talked to myself, in random situations. Does this happen in every situation, or usually when you're by yourself? I find I don't really talk to myself in crowds, since it's too noisy as is, unless I REALLY need to concentrate on a thought. However, when alone, I'm more likely to get chatty with myself.

I think it's very natural for everyone to talk to themselves. I do it constantly without even realizing. I'll be sitting there, and then I'll realize that I've been having a conversation with myself, but the weird part is that I'm two different people. Haaa/:

But I think it's normal for you to do that:]. Completely fine!
You're not going insane at all, and there's a point where everyone's talents get taken to a darker side.
I mean, you never know what you're better at until you try both sides.
It's fine that your writing and photos are changing. If you haven't noticed, upsetting pictures and poetry is totally "in" right now.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

yup sounds like a normal morning for me. well except for the photograhpy part. but sometimes i just need to get out. and well also talking to myself is how i cousnel myself, it's how i keep my self from being lonely. it's how i cope with things.

" One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. "

i wonder when i'll finally jsut start accepting myself, when i'll stop saying i wish i could be like that person.

i have facebook, and myspace. and you can ask for it. :P
