Emotions are beyond any criteria or way to be expressed in, its better to express them in a way you feel better or you can do it easily, don't try to give artificial makeover. The only thing you need to keep in your mind is that your way of expressing feeling should not hurt someone. otherwise its just fine

It depends on the person. Some would rather not mince words, and are very blunt and frank is expressimg themselves. Then, there are some people who prefer the language of poetry to beautifully put their emotions into words. Then again, sometimes a piece of prose is much more heartfelt an expression, and we all know that a picture can speak a thousand words. As I said above, it varies from person to person. It depends on what YOU are comfortable with, and also, if you're expressing your emotions to someone else, what the person you're expressing yourself to is comfortable with.

Writing them down can definitely help. It helps you let out some of those negative emotions. Then, after you're done writing, you can rip it up or scribble all over it, which helps release.

The best ways are different for everyone. Some people write , some immerse themselves in physical activities like sports or running , some dance , some vent. Find out what suits you

I will directly speak out the word I want. But think deeply, I won't use hurtful words to anyone. With the good communication, I think it will brings us to happiness.

Through every method you feel good. It doesn't matter whether is writing, dancing, crying, singing, screaming, etc. Letting your emotions out is a very healthy way to keep a clear mind.

I find that the best way to express your emotions is through what you're passionate about. Understand that not everyone has a passion like in Disney channel shows (where everyone has a 'thing' they're just good at) it doesn't have to be something you're fantastic at, just something that makes you happy. If you're sad, express it through what you're passionate about. If you're angry, do the same. There's a community out there who's ready to support you in whatever your feelings are.

However you want. Paint stuff, write a diary, cook or bake, it comes down to you individually. Is there a particular activity that takes your mind off everything, an activity that can help you unravel your emotions. If you don't know yet, wait and experiment with different activities. It could be walking, or even just talking, or keeping a pet.

From MY point of view, emotions can be expressed best at Opportunities as one's right!.Hence beware of the opportunities!

Write them down? Talk/vent about them? Allow yourself to feel them instead of bottling them up or suppressing them ? Reflect on how you feel ?

People express their feelings and emotions in different ways. As vague as this answer is, I hope you find it to be true. If you are artistic, maybe draw, sing, listen, or play music. If you like the outdoors, maybe start planting

The best way is to say it out which might be hard so you can try to write them or draw them you can even use poetry

It is good to express your emotions rather than keeping it in. But always know that there is a time and place for everything and always find the most suitable time and place to do so.

Expressing Emotions can honestly be a tough process.As many people know, there are both positive and negative ways of doing this.Some of the positive ways include:writing it down, talking to someone, finding quotes you can relate to, drawing a picture to show how you feel or the specific issue you're going through.

tell whatever you are feeling without concluding them, without thinking to put it in order, without worrying about it, just saying it straightforward with honesty!

For me it's definitely through a conversation. Whether it is short or extensive, in a timid or rather excited manner, a dialogue can help transmit or absorb emotions in the most unpredictable ways.

A person should seek to know who they are as a person. This will prevent someone from only reacting with their emotions instead of taking a step back and seeing the situation for what it really is. Then a controlled emotional response can be initiated.

Through creativity! Draw, paint, dance, write. Even frustrated artists, like Van Gogh or even Beyonce, have contributed constructively in the world through creative emotional expression. Leave a good mark for others to admire and follow!

Everybody expresses emotions in a different way. This can be by talking to someone or by writing it down, listening to music, drawing or whatever more. Try different manners and you will find which way works the best for you.

There's so many ways to express your emotions or feeling. Each and every way is good, you only have to find which one is best for you. If you like art, express your emotions with drawing, painting, or crafting. If you like music, try making a music, lyrics, or singing a song that match your emotions. The list goes on and on. Do anything that you think would convey your emotions best.

The best way to express the emotion is to do something related to art. If you feeling frustrated, just sing out loud, dance all hard way, sketch amazingly.... Same with other feelings

The best way to express your emotions is by describing it through paper or verbally communication so others can help you as well as it can relax you from the build up of your emotions deep within you.

The best way to express your emotions is honestly. Ideally it would be with a conversational voice which would indicate that you have given yourself time to reflect on what caused the emotion, rather than simply blasting away, perhaps prematurely without having enough information.
