isn’t it funny when people give advices not realizing that they’re actually telling these things to themselves???… the essence of self-talk!
i call it psyching-up… trying to tell people what they you should do while convincing yourself that you sound believable, and with much exerted effort to be credible. yes, i have done it, and it’s has both negative and positive effects to me. one positive thing about it is that my pronouncements turned out to be some points that i can ponder on. the negative effect is that i’m beginning to be aware when people is ding their own self-talk… hahaha! 😉
