    Do you hate YOUR inner monologue?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by redreversed, Nov 3, 2013.

    I absolutely hate my mind sometimes. I start thinking about something and it just goes off into something completely ridiculous and annoying to the point I want to put my head through a wall. I start to over analyse EVERYTHING(That bottle of water I just finished has a tiny bit left at the bottom).Sometimes my head just loops this kind of information over and over again.

    And the worst thing is how all this inner monologue is a conversation with myself. Sometimes it becomes so ridiculous that I say (in my head) that this is stupid.... and then I reply to that! And it goes on and on.

    Of course there's moments when my head is quiet (when im concentrated or relaxed) but anytime I'm not I go crazy and I cant stop it or control it.

    I really hope I'm not the only one like this... anyone else have this? If not then I guess I am crazy haha.

    If you're worried this is crazy, there's no hope left for me.

    I don't mind mine. I just "talk" about what I'm doing in my head. I like it, it's like a built-in best friend.

    Cog means that if you don't like yourself, you can't like others.

    Ahaha, I know. It's awkward when like nobody else has it. Maybe it's a good thing because it's showing that our brains are already wired to write.

    Which either means I'm backward or a lunatic. Shame I've been described as both.

    No, you're not. If you are, I am, which raises some new problems for me.....

    I do indeed have an inner monologue, and I even argue with myself. Like right now, I am holding an inner case about what should or shouldn't happen in my story.

    I don't mind my inner dialogue (and it is a dialogue). At least I know I'm talking to someone intelligent.

    Yeah, I know - old joke... :rolleyes:

    No, because it's how I think. And how I think is also how I tend to speak. It allows me to familiarize myself with certain phrases I want to use, what's wrong with that?

    You are fortunate enough to have a sane inner monologue!

    You're describing rumination?

    Is rumination dwelling on bad things or failures? If so, not exactly but rumination CAN also be a part of it.

    I assure you, sane is a word far from my inner vocabulary. ;)

    my mind tells me all sorts of weird things that shouldn't be said out loud, i just tell it to shut up and listen to the music! im not like that with other people, as inherently i talk to people who listen to the same music i do anyway... and on occasions, i do actually question my sanity....

    I love my inner monologue. I'm fascinating.

    I think my inner monologue is pretty cool, he / she / it ought to be a real person! A bit manic though, he / she / it keeps replaying : Daenarys Targaryen of House Targaryen, daughter of Aerys Targaryen, sister of Viserys Targaryen, sister of Rhaegar Targaryen, sister of Aegon Targaryen of House Targaryen-- etc.

    The "Targaryen" part is said with a sneezy fucked up tone, hahaha :( Also he / she / it also always makes fun of myself, and sometimes when I'm alone I talk with this inner self: from self loathing to the endless sneezy Targaryen cycle.

    What happened to your spelling Cog? :p

    To the OP - don't worry, we're all in the same boat! I've been like that ever since I was like 14! It's worse when you're having theological debates with yourself and counter-arguing your own arguments and then you're just like, "STOP IT!!"

    The worst monologues are when it's things you wish you could say to someone else :p

    And then I reply to that myself "No I'm not going to stop, if you've got a problem find another brain".
    And that just starts a whooole 'nother conversation.

    I don't have a problem with my mind overwhelming me with uninterruptible inner chatter, but I absolutely hate when my mind veers off track into some kind of a worst case scenario, and even though I started with a pleasant thought, I end up weeping inside about my possible, distant misfortune, loss, or whatever. It's really annoying and I have to keep reminding myself to quit it.
