For the majority of my life, I have often adressed myself as "you" when thinking about myself and things Ive done. This would become most pronounced when I did something I did not like about myself. I would say myself, "Don Ganja, why didn't you talk to her? You need to be more confident in yourself. You always do this." or "Come on Don Ganja, did you really need to skip math class to mastrabate? What a lot of good that did you." When I spoke to myself like I was another person, it always came out accusing and judgemental and completely negative. I was a scolding nag to myself, and it never solved any of my problems. I still wouldn't strike up small talk with the next girl I saw, or change any of my bad habits that I pointed a finger at. After a particularly high anxiety mushroom trip, I realized how much I actually did this and began to understand how completely unhelpful it was to speak to myself this way. I sought out to conciously change this, and I started to adress myself as "I". It was tricky at first and I constantly caught myself using "you", but each time I did I noticed it and corrected myself. Ever since I changed this seemingly small habit, I have felt 200% better. Now when I think to myself I say, "I should go talk to her", or "I have a lot of things to get done today, I shouldn't smoke a bowl right now." "I" puts responsibilty directly in your controll, while "you" just pushes around the blame. "I" allows you to form solutions to your problems instead of dwelling on them. I hope this helps out a few people. Its not a cure for serious depression, but it may be an awakening for some, and I just wanted to share it. Cliffs: When thinking to yourself about yourself, use "I" instead of "You".
