Sorry, no etymologies found.
My sense is that with today's "want it now want it fast" mentality, the internet enables people to bypass the internal "self-speak" that we normally employ to talk ourselves out of doing bad things.
When in the past I slipped into negative self-speak, hurling slogans at myself that I've internalized over the years, now I remember I don't have to "believe everything I think."
