“Express” is to communicate, convey, reveal, expose or give. “Yourself” is YOU. In Expressing YOURSELF we want YOUR thoughts, feelings and emotions, not someone else’s. “Express yourself FULLY” means “all of you”, not a partial rendition or “playing it safe” version. And, yes there are huge rewards for “expressing ourselves fully”, including fulfillment.
Of course, we want to Fully Express Ourselves responsibly. It’s no longer fulfilling when our self-expression is destructive or harmful to someone else. Performers, singers, artists, and musicians find fulfillment in their work because they have a direct channel for expressing themselves fully. On the contrary, when someone follows a format that is “NOT really them” or is forced to fit a mold, the same level of fulfillment disappears. What prevents us from full self-expression? Fear of JUDGMENT. If we can learn to “let go” of what others might think, we can be free to “fully BE ourselves”
What would you like to express to the world? What haven’t you revealed yet? How can you “express yourself fully” everyday? One of our deepest human needs is to be “fully seen” by another. And, it’s so fulfilling to do so. Try it, you’ll like it.
