I recently read that older people talk to themselves more than when they were younger. I took note and realized that I talk to myself and others when I am alone.
Usually, I refer to the conversation by saying “WE.” I’ve thought about why I say “We.”
First of all, I really believe that I am never alone. The way the impossible–or something I didn’t know, explains itself to me when I ask, can be a little scary, but there it is. As well, I believe that we are surrounded by “Love,” God’s nature and that he who talks with me is “The Comforter” as promised.
I am not ashamed of this “habit.” No matter what happens in my life, someone comes to my aid. Often it is a good friend but when I am alone, someone else talks with me. What is good about this is if I thought I was just blabbering back to myself, I wouldn’t need to give much thought to the discussion. The fact that I am honest and sincerely SHARING what is on my mind, indicates that whoever it is that I AM knows the Great “I AM” and works with me.
How about you? Is your self-talk babbling or is it a conversation with “Intelligence Itself?”
