The Therapeutic Benefits Of Self Expression
Posted on April 26, 2013 by misslatoya
No one has to or is required to bare their soul to anyone for any reason whatsoever if they do not want to. Some individuals are very private people. Yet it is not good to keep specific things all bottled up inside.
Everything needs a release every now and then. And afterwards, the process of discharging out a thought or an emotion is indeed quite refreshing, rejuvenating to the spirit.
Whether we speak about the things that fill up within and around us to another person, or write them down, or even sing about them. Self expression and expression of any kind is vital and can be very therapeutic to the body as well as mind and spirit.
Too many people suffer from tension and stress and find relief through physical stimulation. Physical stimulation, however, is only a temporary method. Mental stimulation on the other hand provides long-term lasting effects and results.
I was never the type to get mentally stressed unless I was in the midst of what I considered to be annoyingly bad to my aura or environment. My spirit force always had a special talent when dealing with disturbance.
Natural energy fields that project positive light reflect then illuminate in concordance to the mind.
The power of the mind and the letting go of creativity, ideas, and feeling are exceptional if used for personal development and continuous growth.
We can acknowledge the negative things that are within life without it bothering or affecting us.
There is nothing wrong with expressing truth and perspective about what exists and what is actually going on. It is very healthy to get our thoughts and feelings out.
What is the purpose of pretending or being blind to reality?
Expressing hatred does not mean that one is hurt. Expressing a complaint does not mean that one cares. Expressing a fact and an opinion denotes awareness and individuality.
No one feels, thinks, or reacts for the same exact reasons. What is a burden or a thrill to one is not necessarily a burden or a thrill to another.
A lot of people are not genuinely honest about the certain things that go on inside their minds. Some are too afraid of how others may interpret or regard their statements and point of view.
Many are not on a particular level of reasoning and intellect. They are full of idles and false senses of what is important, exciting, and healthy.
If one perceives something in an over dramatic way and makes more out of an action, communication, circumstance, or situation other than what the instance really is then that unfortunate matter is totally on them.
I have often experienced misconception, exaggerations, ignorance, and even straight out lies and game-playing due to the small-mindedness among particular classes of low-grade people.
Half of the time whatever ridiculous or obnoxious conclusion that is formed and perpetuated by and within the minds of some individuals are just particular revelations that were too deep or difficult for them to accept or to comprehend.
All of us are not within an identical mode and place of life. We are not all of one another and are all not able to relate to each other in the many areas of our existence, to each his or her own, and to each his or her own happiness and well-being.
I love to write. It is a natural and automatic talent that I was born to do. I will never stop enjoying this personal hobby and occupational profession.
It is very important for individuals to have a stable platform whereas they can express themselves and at the same time create.
As far as mainstream, society likes to dictate what is and what is not appropriate content and material to publish. And also what is much more appealing and popular to targeted audiences.
When I write it comes from within, a source of power. I do not concern myself with who would or would not accept or approve of my subject matter. I leave that up to choice. If no one read my work I’d still write, though I was not meant to be a writer for nothing.
A lot of people have held down certain jobs in order to pay their bills, buy their clothing and necessities, to have spending money, to occupy their time, and so on. I know because I’ve done the exact same thing. These jobs give you work experience and help to build and enhance particular skills yet the occupation may not be what one really wants to acquire in life.
Many people are filled with dreams, aspirations, and determinations to follow their natural passion. And while it is good to have something to fall back on one should never give up on what they truly desire.
I’ve been writing ever since the tender age of ten. And I had the opportunity to get my stories published by a mainstream book publisher back then. So I always knew that my talent was going to go far.
There have been quite a few who have tried to discourage me from continuing to write, even going as far as trying to work black magic as a means of bullying me in order to get me to stop from publishing my original content on the web (my blog here) this past summer.
They’d prefer me to work at some beneath me low paying job where I would never get ahead at because there would be corrupt employers there to intentionally keep me held down and held back. However, that is impossible because I am too smart for that, and I do not have to settle.
Or they’d just prefer me to be a bum out on the street.
Certain types of people don’t like to see individuals who have too much knowledge succeed and get ahead if they come across from the “right side of the tracks” and cannot be controlled and/ or maneuvered by anyone for any reason.
Regardless, of how many who tried. And regardless of how many will continue to try, it will never matter. There is nothing that any of my enemies can do about it. I have my own thing, my own actual writing career that has progressed the way that it was supposed to. And I will be carried on for the rest of my life by the fierce blessings of my destiny.
Writing and journalism is a very great accomplishment to attain, especially when the creative content is real and unique.
I can do just about anything that I want to do in life but I choose my first love and that is to write. And what better is there to get paid for something that you actually love to do. Not only do I write, I conduct other artistic and business arrangements related to my career.
I built on my own. And I will continue to succeed on my own (and on my own terms).
