Take a moment to imagine the roughly 7.6 billion people alive on the planet right now. Think about how each of these people has a unique personality and perspective. Wouldn’t it be a shame if any of these one-of-a-kind, incredible people were unable to openly and unashamedly be themselves?

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to express yourself, despite research proving that self-expression is healthy and that you should always express how you feel in order to achieve a healthier state of being. In fact, a study conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles demonstrated the positive benefit of speaking out loud to express how you feel as the study attempted to relieve a group of people with arachnophobia from their fears.

Is this difficulty familiar to you? Do you know how to express yourself or how to be yourself to live your best life?

The importance of self-expression.

Whether self-expression comes naturally to you or not, there is no doubt that it’s important. Expressing yourself openly and honestly to your romantic partners, friends, family members, and even strangers is critical for developing and maintaining healthy relationships.


  • Expressing yourself encourages:
  • A sense of self-identity;
  • Confidence;
  • Joy in the act of being unique;
  • Self-love;
  • Honest discussions;
  • Healthy relationships.

Expressing yourself allows others to connect with you in a meaningful way. Likewise, it allows you to enter into a more authentic relationship with your surroundings.

The pain of bottling it up.

In many cases, whether you are afraid of expressing yourself or whether you simply don’t know how to put yourself out there, bottling up your true self can become unhealthy and damaging over time. Without embracing the things that you love and passionately demonstrating these ideals to the world, you may:

  • Feel a lack of purpose;
  • Convince yourself that you have no self-worth;
  • Become fearful in relationships with friends and family;
  • Experience guilt.

A practice in self-expression.
