Imaginary Conversations with Real People

Have you ever had imaginary conversations with real people? I do it all the time. 

I talk with friends and family about all kinds of things, should I get my hair cut, how can I tell this person how much I really like them.  I change the person depending on what I am talking about.  Say I'm frustrated with Son's Aspergers, so I pull in his old therapist for a pep talk and a reminder of the skills needed. The person varies depending on my mood and needs.

The People In My Head are always SO supportive.  Because of course, it is my brain and the only negative person allowed in there is me.

And I am the one who is afraid of whatever we are discussing.  I am afraid to get my hair cut, I am afraid to put myself out there to that person, I have no patience for Son's behaviors that he cannot control.  I am just a big fraidy cat!  But I know this and that's why I have such wonderful People In My Head.

Thank you, People In My Head.  Some day I will be brave enough to make a decision on my own.  Until then, I will be talking with you a lot!


  1. At least the people in your head make a little sense! lol

  2. I think we all have people in our heads and no one is truly THAT brave. Thankfully we all have some people outside our head too. Because I would be lost without you and my mom! I trust you both WAY more than the ppl in my head. They are medicated and dont always make sense, lmao

  3. i may hae conversations in my head, but i really dont tell

  4. I thought that I was the only one that had conversations in my head! Oh, how I wish that I could just say them out loud at times without looking such a fool!
    At least, I can get my point of view across...and no one argues back!

  5. I have people in my head all the time. Most of the time they are at least invited ;)

    (Sorry it took me forever and a day to finally stop over and say Hello!)

  6. Oh I love the people in your head! It sounds like a party in there. I've never thought of it before, but yes, I do talk to people in my head! All the time! Who knew?

    You did!

  7. I find it amusing that you have real people in your head giving you pep talks. I just have my alter ego.

  8. My hubby has always had conversations in his head and so has his sister. I keep telling them not to tell me because it just creeps me out. I know there are a lot of people like you who have people in thier head, but I don't thank God. LOL You go on with your little conversations and I will ignore it okay? Mom
