10 Brilliant Tips for Self-Expression
You know those times when you have to remember something, say, to tell your spouse to pick up something on the way home from work. You remind yourself a couple times to be sure you don’t forget, because you absolutely need this thing. Today.
Except, they come home without said item claiming you never said anything. Only you’re dead certainyou told them. But 10 minutes later you realize that you actually hadn’t said anything— you simply thought about it so much, you convinced your brain that you had.
Sometimes our personalities are like that.
We get so caught up in our lives, our emotions, our opinions, our problems… that we assume everyone around us knows exactly how we feel. Except in reality we haven’t actually said anything. All of these thoughts and feelings have happened only for us. No one else can see what’s going on inside our minds.
So how do we get out of our heads and show off who we are?
Here are 10 tips for doing just that.
1. Be bold
Don’t be scared or timid. Don’t be afraid of showing yourself off.
2. Say what you’re feeling
Be honest, be kind. Don’t ignore or lie about how something makes you feel.
3. Be spontaneous
Don’t stop to analyze every single thing. Life is happening right now. Live it.
4. Change your mind
Just make sure you tell someone!
5. Be loud
Been quiet lately? Make some noise.
6. Show emotion
Laugh, cry, get angry. Don’t bottle it up.
7. Make eye contact
Very easy way to bring you into the moment and out of yourself.
8. Do something you’ve always wanted
Experiment. Live. Enjoy!
9. Ask questions
Learn about yourself while learning about others.
10. Accept imperfection
Perfection is impossible. Enjoy your imperfect self – you are as close to perfection as you’ll ever be, in this moment.
