If more people would be willing to honestly admit
it, we'd all discover that this is not entirely uncommon. Nor does it indicate that the majority of us are delusionally
unhealthy. Who among us has not heard the words of our parents, teachers, friends, whomever
, echo within our heads from time to time?
Some of these dialogues can be comforting
and even constructive. Others can be damaging, or simply a waste of time to ponder. Others, especially when these snippets of conversation audibly
escape our lips, can be downright weird
. For example: a parent scolding a child...
Parent aloud: "You'll put someone's eye out with that thing!"
Parent to self: "Whoa! Mom, get out of my head!"
