How many times have you said something that just didn’t come out the way you wanted it to? How many times have we said something that we really didn’t mean, but we were too frustrated to stop it from being said? One of the hardest things to do when you’re communicating with someone is how you express yourself. All people are unique and different in their own way and they have to be able to show the world what is the one thing that makes them special. You are an amazing person. You have some unique thoughts, perceptions, and ways of doing things, and you can teach and influence other people with the unique knowledge that you have. But, you have to actively get out there and find ways to do that. Luckily, we have discovered some great practical and creative ways that you can use to express yourself and most of them can also be a lot of fun!
Social anxiety is not a disease. It is a spiritual state of mind that is the direct result of fear. Your imagination will create far worse scenarios than what most people will ever think. Don’t fear what other people think about you. Try this, “I’m having a hard time expressing myself, and I thought maybe you could help me.” Hardly anyone will be critical of you when you’ve asked for their help. It’s a great tool to overcoming your fear of other people’s judgment.
If you’re furious at someone, go ahead and write them a nasty letter. Just don’t give it to them. Sleep on it. Next morning go through the letter, your perspectives have shifted now and I seriously doubt you’ll send the letter under those conditions. But more than that, sending someone a letter that is well thought out is a great idea when you’re trying to express yourself. Sometimes a well worded letter will allow you to express yourself where a conversation would not.
Use shapes, colors and images to reflect how you feel. Our minds have different ways of perceiving things so colors and shapes hold different meanings for us too. Throw paint on a canvas, use different brush strokes to create different shapes and textures, be free and let the painting speak your feelings. Use your body movement, rhythm and music to express yourself. Write a song, sing a song, improvise different sounds and melodies that reflect your current state.
It is a known fact that nature has healing powers. Some people say that one can only be one’s self if they are in nature. Nature brings out the best in people, allowing them to harness their true self. If you don’t have the possibility to spend time in nature, you just have to surround yourself by nature. You should have plants in your room or your office.
Blogging gives you to the freedom to do what you want and say what you want, while connecting with an audience. You can pretty much do anything you want on a blog, and it can be read by anyone in the world, which is why it is a great way to express yourself to a large group of people. You can also share your posts on social media to get them in front of other people or you can just make your blogs anonymous and still express yourself. But whatever you do, make sure you stay active off your blog in order to keep your name in front of other people and encourage them to come visit your blog.
