Adding "to myself" doesn't change the meaning a great deal.
"I've been thinking, I do really love my children equally."
"I've been thinking to myself, I do really love my children equally."

There is very little difference.
Perhaps the second version, with "to myself", suggests a longer period of more profound reflection.
