And your necessity comes from a different area. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It’s very easy to converse with myself, but I’m always moving from topic to topic in my head. LikeLiked by 5 people Reply I think talking to oneself is very easy but staying on topic is very difficult. LikeLiked by 4 people Reply Yes! And I often find it annoying because I want to finish that thought-flow. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I try to tell myself now don’t think about that, think about this … LikeLiked by 1 person for me – that way madness lies. I love variety. A conversation on one topic is bad news, it means I’m either over-analysing it or obsessing about it, & thus it shouldn’t get the airtime. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It’s awesome if that works for you! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hard. I have too many ideas going on in my head and the struggle is putting them together to make sense. That’s why I find it difficult to verbalize it sometimes. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply It seems it is a struggle most of us face. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It’s next to impossible to stay focused on one topic. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply From which areas do the distractions usually come from? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply My mind is usually bouncing between things I want to do, need to do, or didn’t do. Then there are the pint size versions of me that wonder the house asking a million questions. LikeLiked by 1 person At times when I’m relaxed its easier to stay on one topic but still not for long. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Maybe it’s not for long, but is that time improving? LikeLike Reply Easy…also I am many….or better: I can change perspectives easily. Thus, my discussions with mySelves are quite vivid. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply That’s great! How often do you have deep existential discussions? LikeLike Reply Admittedly…and unfortunately, all the time. To buid an opinion and to make decisions it is basically helpful to consider all perspectives…but it is also very stressing to ponder all the time. And finally, sometimes I am not sure if my decision is correct because it can be hard to silence opposing voices in my mind.

My conversations touch on many topics all at the same time. no focus. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What do you think it could help you focus? LikeLike Reply I do my serious talking to myself when I’m driving. My inner voice has called shot gun, has got popcorn ready to munch, and her drama queen crown tilted with a baseball bat swinging and then I can talk on the serious things that I need to work out, plan and solve. So I can keep myself pretty focused on those things. But if it’s nothing serious, then I can’t focus, everything is flooded into my mind, makes my eyes rolls!

LikeLiked by 1 person Difficult to generally focus on one topic, unless I am writing. I get into “the flow” and my mind does not wander. I am sure many writers in the blogosphere identify with this concept. 🙂 Erica LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes!

Well, I may come to a conclusion and move on or get stuck, wander off and return. LikeLiked by 1 person Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
