My Self talk in Dialogue
My Self Talk in Dialogue
Self talks happen all the time, except in dreams only, because I haven’t experienced it before or should I rather say ‘not yet’ if it’s possible. They occur indoors and outdoors, until one really notices that one has been talking to oneself, one would agree with me. It’s neither a bad thing nor a good thing either, depending on which side you are and how you’re feeling, but besides, good or bad, you are the decider.
To refresh your mind further, you as a third party to my writings, could be reading or listening, either way, you are communicating with my thoughts, and somewhere among my speech would disagree with me, and being so, you cannot say it to my face for some reasons unknown but then rather you would be responding in a manner that only you knows what you’re saying. It’s like talking to a shy parent on sex, most probably he/she would try being professional at first side, and perhaps might feel free as you proceed but surely you as a youth would obviously engage in a self talk, more like your eyes saying ‘what the…’, good or bad, you are the decider.
Remembering the good old days when my uncles were used to advice me on sin-taxes but checking them, they were addicted already, and every time they had started a conversation on sin-taxes, I would ask myself ‘why are you doing them if they are really that bad? ’, then finally conclude my statement by saying ‘you are mad’, in a self talk of course.
