Let me start by saying that if you can't be honest with yourself, you are in trouble. It is normal and necessary at times to put on a brave front to others and assure them everything is going to be okay. But you can't always ignore what you have to do if you are going to have a positive outcome. You may think it is crazy to talk to yourself but the truth is you and you alone know the "whole truth" about the true reality of what you are facing. If you can't be honest with yourself then you have no chance of figuring out what you need to do to have a positive outcome. To determine if a person has lost their sanity or if the are legally insane is if "on their own they can make sound decisions". Key words here are "on their own". Not what someone else tells them. So if you think talking to yourself is crazy remember if you don't or can't than you have lost your sanity. With the New Year just days away it is important that you find a quiet place when you have some time to talk to yourself about where you are now, where you want to be in the future, and what you need to change to make 2019 a better year for yourself. Be honest about where you are now and be realistic on the goals you set. If you count on reaching an unrealistic goal you are just setting yourself up for failure.
