Self-Expression is a Form of Self-Care

Also: a poem

Self-expression is a form of self-care. Especially for creatives. Expressing our feelings, our truth of the moment — even if we know it will change minutes or hours or days from now — is also a form of self-care. And the expression of our feelings has often been denied (outside of a therapist’s office) for trauma survivors.

“I can’t share that!” we think. “It will make people feel bad/guilty/angry and they won’t love me anymore.”
