Is it healthy to have conversations with myself

I have conversations with myself all the time. Sometimes even in public and it feels good. Its like im talking to someone who understands me because its me. I don’t know if this healthy or not and ive gotten looks sometimes but i enjoy it.


I think it’s fine. That’s probably the best thing about having my kid with me in public. I have all kinds of crazy conversations with myself and everyone just assumes I’m talking to her.

But, even still, my most average/normal/typical sister talks to herself way more than I ever do. She never shuts up. My mother always joked that it’s because no one else could keep up with her (because she was ALWAYS talking).

I used to talk to myself a lot… especially when I am working hard on an engineering problem. But I worked really hard to stop that because of the odd looks I get. Now, I still sometimes whisper to myself if I think no one is around…

I try to whisper or have these conversations in my head when I’m in public. I don’t want that the evil people outside make fun of me and judge me. :no_mouth:


I saw a guy on the bus once talking into his cell phone. It seemed obvious to me that there was no one on the other line, but I don’t think most others noticed or cared, so there’s one option.
I say things to myself sometimes, or even to my companion angel sometimes, but I try to keep it to a minimum. As long as you’re aware of your surroundings, and you’re not being rude (like people who are talking on their cell phones loudly in a public place) then you’re not hurting anyone so why should they care?


I talk to myself and my voices a lot. I try not to when people are around though. Although sometimes I slip up and answer a question in public or something.when I’m home alone though I’m a chatterbox.

Sounds like a good idea.

Just like with any other conversation… it depends on where it goes.


If it helps you, I don’t think it is a problem. Sounds like it is healthy for you.

I do it in my head, but I accidentally answer myself out loud sometimes

I do that, too, at times, but only in private. I have nobody to talk to, so I talk to myself. I don’t know if it’s healthy, but there is nobody for me to talk to!
