Learning HOW To Express Yourself
I have been all over the place when it came to expressing myself. Now I am looking for that balance in my life when it comes to expressing myself. I get a little tired of hearing oh here she goes having another moment. Well let me have that moment so I can move on I say! I am also finding that there is a time and a place to have that moment too.
Learning to Pick Your Battles
You have to learn to pick your battles because at times you are better off just walking away from the situation! You start going around in circles, nothing gets accomplished and you just end up frustrated and pissed off. Not Good At All!

Sometimes it is more about being understanding and caring than BEING RIGHT! Having that last word. Sometimes taking a step back is much better than acting petty and childish. Think before you just REACT!
Instead . . .
Be a Good Communicator. Be a Better Listener. Encourage One Another to Discuss What is Bothering Them. No Judging, No Suggestions!
Conflict & Confrontation
I do not care for conflict let alone confrontation, but sometimes it just has to go down! I usually need a few minutes alone to gather myself in order to approach the situation at hand tactfully. Plus it allows me the time to engage my brain and not my mouth too! Really do not want to say something that I cannot take back and will regret later on. So Not Cool!

So Not a Mind Reader
As human beings we are not able to read minds! At least I have not been given this super power. So use your words, speak up and get it out in the open. Does that not make you feel better, especially when the person you are dealing with is having the SAME PROBLEM!
Bottled Up & Ready to Explode
All those bottled up emotions and added stress can eat you up and spit you out! Plus take you down if you let it! There is a productive as well as a healthy way to deal with a situation. Your body, mind and spirit will benefit too.
Sometimes you just need to vent in order to clear the air and get it out of your head. Otherwise it becomes like a bad rerun played over and over again! Limit yourself to less than 5 minutes. Find someone that you can vent to and if not just write it down and throw it away. It helps you get it out of your head.

Expressing yourself is about finding that happy medium! It is about becoming a better communicator and building a connection with yourself and others to be able to express yourself better. To know there is a better approach that can be relaxing and healthy as well as a productive and a positive experience.
