Inside Conversations

Sometimes my best conversations are inside my head.
{Don't think I am crazy. I know you have them too.}
Especially after something has happened or said to me. I will come up with a witty comeback or better way of handling something, but too late.  Hubby is out of town and although I talk to my pets, I am having some thought provoking conversations within myself too.  I think it helps me to better prepare for upcoming situations.
I found a book, by Rabbi Zelig Pliskin, "Conversations with Yourself". I read a bit of the reviews and I am anxious to get my hands on it. This book helps you "harness a power within".  A way to use to your advantage these conversations to better myself and my speaking skills.  Maybe it will help me to not get frustrated and cry when I can't express myself the way I meant or want.  Maybe I will learn to think, before I speak...
Singer, Taylor Swift, openly talks about her conversations she has with herself. As well as other celebrities. 
I like my inside conversations so much better than my real conversations. I am one of those people that doesn't like the pause silence... you know that awkward silence like nothing left to say. Or shyness. I RAMBLE on and on! TO MUCH INFORMATION! I need to learn to listen more and talk less. I need to pay attention to what is being said to me, and not drift off into what I want to say next.

I do that all the time ... talk to myself about what I should have said or what I would really like to say. There are a few people in my life that I just walked away from. They think they won. In reality, I didn't want to yell at them or put them in their place, I just walked away forever.

I might just look up your book.

You and I seem to be a lot a like ...

Me too.............I tend to talk more because I hate the silence pauses in conversations....and now we know! I will check out the book! Just for fun this week I will learn to enjoy the pauses and let someone else fill the void! LOL

The reason it it is best to have these conversations out loud instead of inside you head is that once you've spewed them out they get dealt with . If they stay in your head they go round and round without reolution. So peaking to yourself out loud or writing letters not to be sent are very healthy coping strategies that I recommend to all my clients and of course do myself.
