Hello my little explorers!
So this is kind of a big part of who I am, I talked to myself as long as I can remember. For a long time I thought it was weird and something you should keep as a little secret to yourself instead of openly talking about it with friends and well..you.
Today I went on a walk, I was alone so..(you can already guess it) I talked to myself. Not accidentally, I choose intentionally to just talk like I was not alone. I talked about my upcoming weeks, organized roughly what I will be doing and what kind of events & schoolwork is coming up. I particularly talked about my feelings, what I will need to master my upcoming tasks and so on.
Last but not least, I talked about the advantages of speaking to yourself haha.
So let's list the advantages:
- you can practice your speaking skills in a language you're learning.
-give yourself little prep-talks -those boosts your happiness, confidence and self love!
-find solutions for problems you have
-have little "therapist" sessions for free- the answer for your problem is always within yourself! That's exactly what therapists do- by talking to them you realize the solution was always there!
- handle your feelings way better- when you find yourself in a place of self hate, depressive thoughts, anger, hate etc- instead of leaving those feelings and thoughts inside of you- let them out! Talk about them!!
- practice talking to your intuition- it is the voice within yourself that is calm, all knowing and talks after the ego.
I recommend firstly to try the exercise "writing to your intuition" where you take a piece of paper and write questions on it and wait for the first quick answer of the ego to pass.. so that then a calm, warming voice can speak up,that tells you the truth.. More on intuition here.
After you have a feeling for your intuition- you can easily just talk to it!
I really want to thank you for reading and tell me what you think! Are you already practicing talking to yourself? What are your experiences?
SHARE IT DOWN IN THE COMMENTS!
With that all being said, I wish you an awesome week!
