Maybe, apart from the obvious bneits of seeing a therapist to end this habit, you would initially find it very pleasing to have someone focus exclusively on all you wanted to say about yourself, for an hour at a time.
And mabe concntrate on finding other things to talk about --- especially, asking other people pleasantly to tell you about themselves ( most peopel's favourite topic ). And resolve to only tell them what they ask about, and even then only if its the sort of thing they really need to know.
Its never as simple as just giving you some magic sentence. A therapist could help you to feel valid without saying a word to others.
