Admit it, we all do this.

5 Reasons It's Okay To Talk To Yourself

Does it ever occur to you that you talk to yourself at random times of the day? I know I notice it in myself every second of every day. At first, I thought it was a bad thing because everyone would question me, then I began to think about it and believe it or not it's actually okay to talk to yourself. Here are some reasons why:

1. Your intelligence level surprisingly increases.

I did not know this myself until I read this said photo. Then I actually believe it is the reason my grades got better over time this year. When I don't talk to myself my mind will shut off and make me do stupid stuff. So I am satisfied this fact is accurate.

2. You can always give yourself compliments.

You found an outfit, put it on, took a selfie of you wearing it and no one else seemed to care about your personal opinion. Or you finally woke up not feeling the need to put makeup on and just feel naturally beautiful(if any girls ever have those days). Not everyone is going to notice like you are, and even when they do notice and tell you, you will tell yourself you agree with them and probably no one else.

3. Sometimes you can have intellectual conversations with yourself.

You know how you tell someone, "I was just about to tell you something/say something, but I completely forgot?" Well, you cannot do that to yourself since you will say something you needed to remind yourself for your own benefit. When someone does do that to you just tell them you're thinking, unless they saw you talk to yourself in the process, then tell them you were doing that.

4. Nothing will be awkward!

Sometimes you notice when talking to other people there are always awkward pauses between sentences. I had this happen so many times it would bug me in seconds and I either wait for someone to start the conversation back up or I randomly say stuff about the weather (the usual topic of interest). With talking to yourself there is only like, a brief second of thinking then getting back into topic. It's so much easier, you have to admit.

5. Lastly, everyone does it, there's no denying.

I accept defeat and starting admitting to people that I do talk to myself. I see others do it all the time too and half the time they'll say I won't know what I'm talking about.

If after reading this article you realize you talk to yourself and see these reasons are accurate, please, just accept defeat!
