MORE ABOUT SELF-TALK
What is self-talk?
Self-talk is the act or practice of talking to oneself aloud or mentally.
Self-talk, or talking to yourself is a normal, common practice. Sometimes people will engage in self-talk as a way to remind themselves to do something or to acquire something, such as reminding yourself to bring your homework with you to school. People will also use self-talk as a way of creating sound when it’s too quiet or to feel less alone.
While people talking to themselves out loud is common, deranged, excessive, or erratic self-talk can be a sign of an anxiety attack or a mental illness.
Mental self-talk is your internal dialogue, that is, the thoughts in your head or inner speech. According to psychology, the primary way humans think and reason seems to be through mental self-talk.
Example: I always try to engage in some positive self-talk before I go for a job interview.
Where does self-talk come from?
Mental self-talk can be positive or negative and is usually controlled by the subconscious mind. Positive self-talk is often associated with confidence, reassurance, and clear thinking, while negative self-talk is normally related to anxiety, depression, clouded thinking, and irrational behavior. Many therapists and psychologists will work with patients to maintain or supplement positive self-talk and avoid negative self-talk.

it takes so much work to unlearn behavioral patterns you adopted out of self defense, and so much time to actively & consistently counteract the negative self talk you let stand unchallenged for years. it’s tiring.
