Emotions and expression
I have always had difficulty with expressing myself. My feelings thoughts and emotions have never quite been explained as I would have liked to. I used to write poetry, write in my journal, I used to draw but drawing never quite turned out how I wanted it.. Do any of you guys have any tips or ideas of how I can put out my mental health in a more verbal and visual way? I know this should probably go in the self-expression forum but I wanted it to go here because I want to explain how I am mentally if that makes any sense? thank you x

Re: Emotions and expression
Do you play any instruments? I express myself through the piano and the guitar. Also art is great. There are so many ways to express yourself but you should find what you have a passion for the most. PM me if you have any questions?^^

Re: Emotions and expression
Personally, I have always found that keeping a journal and making entries often helps me sort through what I may be feeling or going through at a particular time. But everyone is different.

What about about some type of physical or performing art such as dance, theatre, or even yoga? I realize these things may not be for everyone, but it may be a way to express yourself while burning some energy at the same time. In any event, I hope you find something you are happy with.

Re: Emotions and expression
I have a few of them, hope these help out:

- Dancing : Choreograph your own steps, you will feel energetic.

- Drawing/Sketching : Anything that visually pops into your head, draw/ sketch it out.

- Music composition: If you play musical instruments, you can compose your own tunes.

- Presentation/ Video making/ Film making: If you are technosavy, you can prepare your own presentations or film.

- Fashion designing : You can sketch your own set of clothes.

- Decorations:Start decorating with your own room.

- Flip book drawing : My personal favorite.

- Cooking : Believe it or not it is a form of creative expression.

- Writing: If not drawing, why don't write your story?

- Hand made gifts/cards : Prepare your own set of cards and gifts

These are the most I could think of.

Choose that way of expression that makes you happy. :)
