It isn't normal but, that is happen often ? What do the voices tell you ? How do they make you feel ?

It's normal if you have a condition that causes this to happen ! There is medication that can help manage the voices ! By talking to a expert you can get the best support to deal with then !

"Normal" is a bit of a relative term that varies from person to person. What is normal for one may not be normal for another. However, that said, you should probably talk with a mental health professional to allow for more in depth conversation about how these experiences are affecting you on a regular basis. They will be able to give you more feedback, and more specific discussion about how to assess and cope if needed. :)

everyone has debates withing oneself from time to time, it helps us view a problem from different points of view; it is normal to get mad at yourself and "yell" mean stuff to you from time to time. I would say the important thing here is how these voices make you feel, do they make you feel worthless? do they encourage you to try harder or discourage you from trying new things? do they encourage you to do things that might be dangerous for you? and also how often? having debates or arguments with oneself is normal, but if the struggle withing those parts of you is interrupting too often your day to day life it could be dangerous.

Yes it is absolutely normal when you are going through anxiety attack or depression or even when you are scared of doing something.

It can be normal as you may have a mental illness that has a side effect of this, please consult a doctor about other problems other than voices if they become too much.

No, you should go to a therapist or psycholigist to help you with that. If you look for help you will get better

I believe it may be helpful to seek a professional on this matter. It may be a sign for a bigger problem.

Inner conflicts can't be ignored. It is normal to a certain degree. If it bothers you too much for too long, it's time for you to discuss this with people close to you and a healthcare professional.

If there is a voice in your head and it isn't your thoughts, that is not normal and you should seek professional help.

Well no that is not normal, I would get psychiatric assistance with that, but you decide what you want.

No, it's not normal. However, it is normal for people with schizophrenia to have voices in their head. You should go to a professional immediately if you keep hearing it.

It can be. Not many people see it that way, but if it's people like your mom or dad saying something in your head then it's just your mind saying you know what to do

That is a difficult question to answer as there are many reasons as to why you would experience that. You are describing internal voices which are quite normal and part of the conscious thought process, while multiple voices are uncommon the mind is quite able to do so. As to why it comes of as yelling; most likely you are stressing yourself out becoming anxious about the voices, maybe even subconsciously tormenting yourself, this can cause the thought process run wild making it seem like it's uncontrollable maybe even feel a bit like split personality or more commonly thought of as schizoid. This has happened to me on occasion and is more common than you'd think. My opinion is that you consult with your doctor or a therapist, most of the time there are underlying reasons causing the stress and it will help you lay it to rest more than speculation can.

Well it's not a normal thing to be honest, from what i know it's probably some kind of schizophrenia. If you can get professional help that would be a huge step foward to improve your mental health :)
