Express In Order To Grow.
Updated: Dec 10, 2019
We express in many forms, with our words, with our body, with our creativity, even in our dreams. We express to process feelings, experiences and memories, the more we express increases our awareness of our emotions in order to understand them and evolve.
Let start by thinking of our feelings and emotions as data. They give us information regarding our state of being, our current mood, or how we react to certain stimuli.
With this data, we can communicate meaning and intent. It can be said that is the basis of communication.
“When you are self-aware, you can see where your thoughts and emotions are guiding you”
When we are aware of our emotions, we can transmit them clearer to others. As a consequence, we can be straightforward with our desires, as well as our boundaries.
If we have not gained yet a good level of awareness, we can expect our communication to be a bit off, regarding our real demands. This may also happen if we do not want to feel vulnerable. But remember, strong emotions can last a while at a conscious or unconscious level, even more when they are unpleasant ones. Expressing them is important, not only to acknowledge and validate our feelings, but to release them from our system, process them and grow.
“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change”
Do you express enough?, do you find difficulties in doing so? or gaining awareness of your feeling?, let’s talk about it! :)
