In today's busy world, we have a lot of thoughts running through our heads at all times. Our thoughts get mixed up in our minds and can become sorely powerful if left unchecked.
Engaging in intrapersonal communication is important since it involves communication with the self, involving the process of thinking and discernment. It is basically an inward looking exercise. Such a skilled nature of communication helps in one's self-development. For instance, a person may use self-talk to calm himself down in a stressful situation or a shy person may remind him/herself to smile during a social event.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
