Soliloquy.

People might consider me insane and crazy but I like having conversations with myself. A man’s best friend is his own inner soul and speaking to oneself helps a great deal in finding solutions to one’s own issues. Whenever I am facing a certain problem, I talk it over with myself. This not only helps me understand the issue more clearly but also provides space to think about the matter again. And there have been times when I had been able to come up with a fruitful conclusion as well. Soliloquy also helps in making me realize my potentials and flaws. It is in solitude that one discovers a lot about himself. Above all, I do not have to bother my friends in my problematic situations as I always have a best friend accompanying me all the time. However, it should be remembered that besides being a best friend, a man is the worst enemy of himself as well. Whether you land up being your own friend or enemy largely depends upon the way you think, the way you converse, and the way you feed your subconscious mind.

It is a risky path to follow. Talking it out with other people is better. The human mind has a tendency to favour itself.

I don't agree with Ritu because people tend to listen to advice of others while ignore their own feelings. They tend to ''follow the crowd'' becouse they think that's the best way to live - but at te same time they're killing their unique entity. I think these lyrics are right on this topic:

SOMETIMES I FEEL LOST AND STOLEN
EVEN WHEN THE SUN IS SHINING
SOMETIMES I FEEL SO MUCH ON MY OWN

IKNOW I CAN PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL YOU
BUT THIS WON'T SORT OUT ANYTHING AT ALL

I WANT TO GET THROUGH THE BAD TIMES
WITHOUT YOU MY FRIEND
I WILL SEE YOU LATER WHEN I MAKE IT IN THE END

BECAUSE NOW I'M JUST ANOTHER WEEPING MAN
NOW I'M IN THE DEPEST KIND OF FALL

I KNOW I CAN PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL
ON YOU MY FRIEND
BUT THIS WON'T SORT OUT ANYTHING AT ALL

SOMETIMES I SEE MYSELF IN BLUES
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE LONELY BAG OF BONES

I KNOW I CAN GIVE UP AT ANY MOMENT
BUT THIS WOULD TURN MY HEART INTO STONES

Superb....

Like this article help to increase Confidence in ME, and almost finished the feeling of Lonely, Sometime in Life we remain alone and feeling that there is no one who support us in this situation..

So if we keep oneself in our own FRIEND LIST we may never remain ALONE...

Good Job!

@ Ritu...Yes, it is but what should I do if I do not find anyone to talk to? Aren't there such times in everyone's life? I would agree that the human mind has a tendency to favor itself but soliloquy works as a catharsis sometimes, I feel.

@ JohnnyRei: Thank you for sharing the lyrics, Johnny. And hey, you need not to be a weeping man! You always motivate others and you should be a "merry man." :)

@ Cashif...I am glad it helped somehow. You gave a reason to this blog post...thank you, Cashif.
