How Expressive Art Can Help You To Be Yourself Around Others - with Shelley Klammer of Expressive Art Workshops
Do you feel as though you are keeping your true self hidden? Like there is more within you, that you feel unable to express in front of others? When we feel anxious in social situations we often keep ourselves small in an attempt to avoid attention or possible judgment. We may start to perceive ourselves as boring or uninteresting, feel self-hating, and loose sight of all the richness we have to offer.
