self-talk in plural ?

Once I realized I do not suffer from depression, but rather a low self-esteem I started to see myself differently.
This is when I noticed my self-talk tends to be in first person plural. I don't know if I do this as a way to detach myself from responsibility or what?
Instead of saying, "I know what I can do."
I say, "I know what we can do."
Instead of saying, "I should clean the bathrooms today."
I say, "We should clean the bathrooms today."
I've tried to look this up online and do not see anything about it, except in reference to a book about dissociative identity. Which just freaks me out. In high school I wondered if I could have this after learning about it b/c I had completely blocked out my 2nd grade year & realized I had in my 3rd grade year. Anything & everything I've done has not been able to trigger memories from that time. I've had other times which are blurry, but I don't think I've ever had any other total block out (except my first kiss w/the man who is now my H).
Does anybody else do this? Should I be concerned?
