Its only crazy and bizarre to talk to yourself when you dont realize you arent talking to anyone but yourself.

Basically as long as you arent expecting or waiting on a response, just talking out loud is not seen as crazy

Nothing wrong with taking to your self

It's only considered crazy and bizarre because you have the option to talk to yourself inside your head with the same effects.

It is okay to talk to yourself.

It is okay to argue with yourself.

It is not okay to lose those arguments with yourself.

And reading out loud is considered childish but reading at all is considered old.

It depends on how you talk to yourself. If you are having a coherent dialogue as if you were talking to another person it's weird. Just thinking out loud isn't weird.

I don't think anyone would mind others talking to themselves when they are alone unless you are screaming. And a diary gives you privacy while talking out loud is public.

It's not weird or crazy to talk to yourself.

Unless it's Tom Riddle's diary…

Parents encourage children to keep diaries but the same parents have no problem violating their privacy and reading that diary.

Nothing wrong with talking to yourself until you have to ask yourself what you said.

I don't care if people talk to themselves, but don't do it when I'm in the room and then get mad when I assume you're talking to me!

Isnt thinking and talking to yourself the kinda same?

Ingrained stereotypes through media or personal experience. Most people have seen a crazy person talking to themself. Few people have seen a crazy person writing in a diary.
