Play • 1 hr 15 min

Expressing yourself can be tough in an unforgiving world, however, carrying the burden of never speaking up can be an even heavier load. This week we talk about the importance of having the courage to express yourself. From being at war with yourself to understanding that every idea doesn't need to be expressed, we talk about the up's and down's of expressing yourself.
