The inner voice can keep us trapped in a hell of our own making. But it can also be one of our greatest strengths - if we can control it.
From time to time, we are all fixated on something that happened. We voice in out heads replay it over and over in our heads. I shouldn't have snapped at Dad when he is always so patient with me. We ruminate, we worry, we catastrophize.
There is a difference between a normal stream of consciousness and going into a chatter spiral.
When you find yourself rehearsing the same thing repeatedly without trying to come up with an objective solution, and the negative thoughts start to prevent you from doing other things, you are experiencing chatter.
