A soliloquy is when you speak your thoughts out loud. This can be when you are by yourself, which is when we say you are talking to yourself. A soliloquy can happen when someone says their thoughts out loud but ignores everyone around them. This person could also just pretend that the people around do not exist. When you use a soliloquy, you are always voicing or speaking your own thoughts.
We can use a soliloquy to give ourselves courage or to give ourselves pep talks. For instance, we may tell ourselves out loud that we will do well on a test or quiz. If you play a sport, you may tell yourself that you will score a point or win the game. If you have a busy day, or lots of homework, you may tell yourself all the tasks you have to finish for the day. You may give yourself a list of things to do. It is important to remember that for each of these examples, you are talking to yourself out loud. It is not a soliloquy if you are not talking or saying things out loud.
A soliloquy is different from conversations because a soliloquy only involves one person — yourself. With a soliloquy, you are not talking to another person or joining a conversation with someone else. Instead, you are talking only to yourself, pretending that no one around you exists. It is not a soliloquy if you are talking to someone else or if someone else is responding to what you are saying.
With a soliloquy, your goal is not to let others know your thoughts by speaking them out loud. Instead, your goal is only to talk to yourself. This is the main difference between a soliloquy and a monologue. With a monologue, you talk to yourself with the goal of giving other people information about yourself or a topic. Remember, it is with a soliloquy that you pretend that no one is around while you are talking to yourself.
Here are examples of scenarios where you might use a soliloquy and talk to yourself:
When you are worried about how you did on a test, and you talk to yourself about how you did.
When you get angry and you rant to yourself about what is making you upset.
When you don’t like someone and you are talking to yourself about why you do not like someone.
When you are reviewing for a quiz or exam and you answer questions that you ask yourself out loud.
When you are at a sporting event and you are talking to yourself about how to win the game or get a point.
When you are doing homework or a task and you talk to yourself about how to finish the task.
When you narrate out loud what you are doing in your life. For instance, if you are cooking, then you say out loud what you are doing as you cook.
When you get excited about something and talk to yourself about how excited and happy you are.
