Sometimes I feel so much expression inside and cannot let it out. I want to sing, dance, and speak my mind, but feel inhibited. Can anyone give advice on feeling free to express all these things?

Do you write? That's what I do. And this way, it's only you who sees it. Then maybe you can let it out in other ways (like you said, dancing, singing, etc...) Art maybe???

The thing is I WANT people to hear it. I want everyone to hear and see me. I do art, it's helpful for therapy sometimes, but I also want to feel connected to people too.

I feel the same way. I have since chidhood. I've been trying to educate myself, via TV., internet, & books, about what makes us this way & why me?
There are too many different opinions about it but I do believe that artistic people have more difficulties functioning 'normally' in society. We use one side of the brain more than the other (I forget right or left) not by choice mind you, but simply because that's the way we are. People who use the other side are usually better diplomats or better at conversing (but artistically challenged). I like to sing & dance too. I joined a small choral group & I feel a little more comfortable performing now. I don't know if I will ever be able to truly express everything but at least it's a step. No one is going to do it for you. That's for sure, so if you want it, DO IT!

Thanks for the bit of encouragement. I've decided to take some dancing lessons, then practice my steps every other week. It really helps to hear I'm not alone... Do you think there are support groups for people like us?

It just takes time to overcome shyness....it is not easy but the more you try to do things you would like to do the easier it becomes...i once had that problem too. you can do it and you will love it

I'm sorry it took so long to get back but I'm online about once a week.
I'm sure there are support groups in your area. The trouble would be finding them. May I suggest asking your local mental health clinic if they could give you numbers to call & find them. My local newspaper also gives meetings of different groups (dates, times, & places) maybe yours does too.
