So, here’s why everyone should choose to do something highly personal and creative, something that comes from you and that represents you and your values. I have chosen writing books. For me, writing and creating characters, worlds, ideas, experiences, is all about self-expression. It is about freeing myself from my personal burdens and difficulties appearing in life. But it’s also, and most importantly, about finding myself through my writing, through my creative expression.
What is finding myself mean?? It means that I get to stop my anxiety, my worry, my desires, my daily thoughts, and focus on my mental health, on my mind expansion as self-awareness. Because life is about learning about yourself in depth. So, expressing yourself through something personal and creative, like writing books, or a blog, or painting, or other crafts, helps you get in touch with your deepest emotions; and subconsciously your mind learns to relax and be more introspective (thinking clearly before acting impulsively).
Hi. My name is Asael (Asa) Rodriguez. I write fiction and nonfiction. But mainly I am focusing on fantasy right now. My series BENJAMIN JONES. It is about a 12-year-old orphan boy who seeks to find out about the mysterious death of his indigenous parents, but also about himself. The stories are about self-discovery and magic. Ben grows into the wisdom that we all carry magic and great love within us. We just have to discover it for ourselves.
In the stories, he also has to fight shadow creatures, necromancers, witches, etc. His journey of magic and self-discovery take him to many worlds, beginning from our world in the 1880s-1890s. He travels to other times as well. He meets friends and gods. The series just started. I am currently writing #3. If you check my website, you can find out more about it. Thanks.

‘…and most importantly, about finding myself through my writing, through my creative expression.’ I can’t resonate more with this. Since I started expressing myself through my blog, my mental health, self-esteem, clarity and just joy for life increased tremendously! In a way, I feel like I saved myself with writing. Such an amazing post. I was so happy to see other creatives talk about this as well.

Absolutely. All problems we humans have stem mostly from lack of self-expression, or from not knowing how to. I truly feel that saves lives to become free and able to say how you think and feel. Thanks for your great comment!
