If you do, what about? What's it like? Do you do it aloud, or silently, or in your journal? Is it helpful?

Yes - this works for me, too. I hope other people read your comment and pick up the habit. I think the more we argue with ourselves - in a loving, self-aware way, the less we argue with others.
Agreed on that last sentence!
It's fun to try different forms - silent (inside our heads), writing, and aloud. I think they produce different results, and that getting it out aloud or in writing seems to be more creative and effect more change.
Hilarious! Thanks for brightening what had become to be a bit of a grim day. All good arguments - except - chocolate almost always wins over vanilla, doesn't it? :)
Great - Mom Kat. Keep making yourself into who you want to be. And maybe it's time to give that negative side a hug and hold her. Think of her as an adopted child from a bad family, who you love deeply.
Recent studies show that cursing can help us endure pain. Work it out! It's great to see that you are becoming more flexible as you grow.
It sounds like and endless path of growth in self-expression! Wonderful!
Yes! But Larry, do you do it aloud, silently, or in writing? What's your style?
Sid, I do not know why you ask.. The manner in which I argue with myself should not be of any importance. For the record, I do it silently. Sometimes I make a list of pro and con. Talking it out with no audience seems useless. To each his own--OK
Hi Larry - yes, the answer is personal, and I'm sorry if I offended by pressing. But it may be that the answer does matter. We use different - and possibly more effective - parts of our brain speaking aloud and listening than we do thinking silently.
