We often talk to ourselves out loud or silently, but what at point does it become a symptom of mental illness?
Clinical Psychologist Kgamadi Kometsi says talking to yourself can prove to be healthy but is problematic when it becomes a substitute for real life interaction.
"Whether we express it overtly or not, there is a thinking that is going on in our heads all the time, some people verbalize it, some do not. When you over do it then it becomes a problem."
