"Be who you are and say what you feel; people who mind don't matter and people who matter don't mind." Dr. Seuss
Learning to express our thoughts, feelings, and experiences is a form of self-care. Language, art, action, reflection involve skills that enhance our lives and those around us. It is important to be able to express ourselves in ways that respect our values, resources, and goals. Otherwise we are at risk for doing and saying things that violate our values, don't meet our needs, and cause problems for ourselves and people we care about. Skills for communication and self-expression can be learned at every stage of life. We all deserve the opportunity to learn these skills.
