Inner dialogue or self-talk is totally normal! So, no, you're not crazy. Everyone speaks to themselves throughout the day. Thus, our inner monologue lays the foundation for a healthy mind.
The layers of mental health are continuing to be peeled. Its significance is being acknowledged frequently. For that reason, we hear about self-love, self-care, and checking on ourselves often. Some people have said that the constant reminders can be annoying; still, steadily caring for our minds can be an energy booster and a day changer while creating a lifetime of healthy habits. It also affects the people whom we care about most deeply.
I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.
What we say to ourselves can be a very private conversation. It's personal, just like the way we speak to our child, lover, or best friend. We have many speech styles, but is our inner speech style respectful and kind? Our inner dialogue may change from day-to-day, but our inner monologue is what we repeatedly speak to ourselves.
Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It’s sanity.
Self-talk can be a healthy way to problem solve or compartmentalize our daily happenings. This speech can be positive or negative. It can be something that was said to us as children and never filtered out. Suppose our monologue is invalidating; we can create a transition toward healthier inner speech. If it seems too much or self-harming or harmful, it would be most beneficial to speak with a professional.
Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.

While we continuously filter what goes through our minds, every day we can:
- Speak positive affirmations.
- Read a motivational book.
- Hang a feel good art piece.
- Buy a plant.
- Listen to feel good music like our Rxescueskin Spotify playlist.
Words can cause waves of love or trauma. We live by the way we think and our mindsets develop from the time of conception. You are here. You are valuable. Respect yourself. You are worth every drop of it. Don't be your own worst bully.
