Self-expression isn’t what you do, it’s how you do it.
Self-expression is not developed by a new skill that comes to your mind. It’s developed by removing barriers and the filters you’ve constructed that push your true self by the wayside. Self is expression allows your true self to come to the surface.
Self-expression isn’t achieved by adding new skills.
Self-expression is developed by removing old ones. Your feelings are allowed to flow through your body, words to form on your tongue, expression to move through your face, physical changes to happen in your body without trying to control them.
It is allowing everything inside you to exist and to flow outwards, just like you did when you were a child.
You're born self-expressive. You are born free, you're born real, you're born open and expressive.
Be you! Be free!
Allow your true self to come out. Get out of your own way, and allow the real you to flow out. It's as simple as that. The ball is in your court and the magic is in your hands. Get out there and get it done!
