Never used a form before today but since I am doing new things I figured why not jump right in. I have been running into a hurdle lately with my expression and was wondering if anyone else runs into the same issues. I am bipolar and I often find myself battling between progress I make mentally versus keeping my expression alive too.
I know some of it comes from having to run so many system diagnostics on myself constantly that I forget to let go and let be but I want to develop healthy ways to keep both going. I came across something last night that really struck a cord with me and it stated “your art or expression shouldn’t be something that’s forced every time and should flow like water”. Not the exact phrase but it is close enough. I get to this point often but usually after I have an episode and go through my manic. Its like fumbling in the dark to reconnect everything and I just cant get anything out or relax enough to.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! :]
