What Lizzy did

Sleeping came very easy for me that night, as soon as I laid down my head down, I felt my eyes close and my whole self relax. It was around midnight when I awoke again. A thought had come to me. I sat up in bed, a smile played around my lips.
"Lizzy," I whispered, "you silly girl! How selfish you have been! Thinking only of your self!"
I rested my head against the bed board, "You who are called smart and sensible, have been most foolish!" I gave a low laugh, "Lizzy you must stop!" I commanded myself.
"Think of Liza and Bekah, they came here to have fun and help Auntie, not to worry about you. Come now, promise to stop."
I took a deep breath, and promised myself. A happiness filled me, "Lizzy you were not made to pity your self." I said a little to loud. Liza turned over in bed and mumbled, "Lizzy?"
"Yes?"
"Are you alright?"
"Yes, dear I'm fine."
"Then go to sleep."
"I will. Liza?"
"Yes?"
"Good night!"
"Good night Lizzy."
And I fell asleep once more.

I love how you reprimand yourself, Lizzy! It reminds me of Alice in Alice in Wonderland.
