This flies in the face of social norms and Hollywood – and here’s hoping I don’t get a visit by men in white jackets – but I often enjoy talking to myself, either with the narrator in my head or by speaking out loud.

There are times, especially when I’m giving myself positive reinforcement, that I enjoy doing it in front of a mirror.  Like it’s made more powerful by the visual that is giving, and in turn receiving the message.

Other times I’ll ask myself a question out loud, and give myself an answer. I’ve even had a couple of times where I’ve achieved a goal and congratulated myself out loud, and then within the space of a heartbeat, had another quite separate ‘voice’ agree with the first ‘voice’.

I get it, this might appear strange and you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s no possible reason I should want to talk to myself.

But ultimately, my reason is a pretty straight forward one.

There are over 8 billion people on this earth. I’ve met a handful of them and really, only a tiny amount of those would ever have my best interests at heart.

It’s critical I prioritize myself, especially mentally, if I want to achieve the kind of life I want to have. So, when I want to talk about anything at anytime, with someone who has seen, heard, felt and experienced everything I have during my life, then it makes perfect sense that I talk with myself.
