Never underestimate the usefulness of talking to yourself. When you say something out loud, you're forced to deal with it, no matter how stupid or flippant it may be. Then you can move on and make progress, instead of just mulling it over silently, indecisively and self-consciously, vague shapeless thoughts that you genuinely were convinced of, but give up and forget because you were too embarassed to confront them, leaving you at the same or lower place on the hill than when you started.
