The Human mind is TRULY an amazing, yet confusing thing. I am trying to figure it out. I am now asking how many famous people went crazy trying you understand who they, others, our brains act in the way they do. Right now I am JUST SO BORED. Boredom to me is never a good think having 4 Disabilities, M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) + Fibromyalgia + PTSD and Psychosis as they can take over. A small action usually is the trigger for me, big things I can usually just walk past or over, the smallest of things can get me over-thinking and it’s not always a good thing. Right now I am going for ‘Funny’, but I can’t be sure this will be funny 😀 If anything, our brains are good fun, I mean if we all were serious and angry in our thinking, it would rip us to pieces, trust me, I been there, I still might be there 😀 All I go do is live in moments (I think). I may look at this tomorrow and think “Oh Shaun, Why”, because often I do. But let’s get real here, who do I harm? Answer! NOBODY 😀 Cheer up World.. TRUST ME, IT COULD BE OH, SO WORSE. Maybe……….. lol. Anyway, a stupid thought created this copy and paste below. Enjoy…..
- Give yourself a shoutout. Even if no one else seems to be appreciating you at the moment, compliment yourself on the way you handled a difficult situation, left your comfort zone for a new adventure, or just got through a busy day.
- Give yourself a pep talk. We could all use a motivational speaker from time to time, but we don’t always have one handy. Self-talk can help you motivate yourself to achieve a goal at work, in a relationship, or in your personal behavior.
- Debate both sides of a difficult decision. Saying your options out loud and elaborating on the pros and cons can help bring the right choice to light, and you might be surprised at the unexpected direction your thoughts take when they’re audible.
- Blow off steam. If you’re not the type to confront people who tick you off, talk to yourself about how they bother you or how unfair a situation is. Introverts are especially prone to missing opportunities to assert themselves. Put the “self” back in self-assertion.
- Understand your thoughts better. Sometimes we’re sure we think one way, but our psyche tells us differently. Have you ever found yourself crying when you didn’t think anything was wrong? That’s your subconscious letting you know. Invite it to join your conversation to bring you to new levels of self-awareness.
- Rehearse a difficult conversation. Practicing what you need to say to get your points across clearly and without anger will put you in a much better position when it comes time to communicate about a tough issue.
- Boost your memory. Research shows that saying the location out loud when you place an object will help you remember where you put it.
- Shake off stress and anxiety. Who couldn’t use one more way to get rid of stress? Work it through with a monologue.
- Improve attention span and concentration. Indeed, many people with ADD talk to themselves to help bring a tangle of thoughts into focus. Notice how often you see athletes muttering under their breath before an event; they’re calming themselves down (#8) and pumping themselves up (#2). It works.

I didn’t solve everything that had been bothering me, but I did lift some weight from my shoulders by listening to the sound of my own voice as it brought forth some notions I hadn’t been aware of.
So whenever you see people talking to themselves, remember that it’s a sign of sanity, not insanity. It makes us wiser, calmer, and more motivated. What are you waiting for? I can’t hear you.
