Lately, I have been noticing that I talk to myself a lot, both out loud and inside my head. I tend to criticize myself after talking to anyone or doing anything that I might have made awkward. I get mad at myself and tell myself that I did something wrong, whether that be thinking that I annoyed someone by talking to them or by not talking when I should have.
I also talk to myself to remind myself of what I am doing when I am anxious and forgetting what I am doing. I have noticed that I am able to calm down a small bit faster if I tell myself out loud to breathe or do a simple task. It’s as if there are two parts of my brain and one has to speak aloud to calm the other down.
As I said in the beginning, comments are extremely welcome.
