It happens...that sometimes our self-talk can no longer be separated from what is real and what is not...from what is false and what is true. The things that we tell ourselves sometimes reaches a point that the what is and what should be becomes a blur. Many people are like this. Even me. Sometime in our lives, we have experienced distorting truth and convincing ourselves that we are right. But self-talk is actually good. It's a way of coping and builds self-confidence. It only becomes damaging when it makes a person delusional, egotistical and narcissistic. Then, that person becomes his own worst enemy.
