As Natasha Bedingfield said in her popular early 2000’s song Unwritten, “release your inhibitions, feel the rain on your skin.” What she meant by that was to let nothing stop you. Release everything that is holding you back, which she refers to as inhibitions. How would one define inhibitions? The definition of inhibition is a feeling that makes one self-conscious and unable to act in a relaxed and natural way.
Now the word inhibition at times has a negative connotation, but some inhibitions are good. Our inhibitions can prevent us from smashing that glass because we are furious. On the other hand, our inhibitions can keep us from trying out for that role in the school play or asking that guy out you saw in the grocery store. Other inhibitions are feeling inadequate, being overly shy, fearing loss of control, having low self-esteem, etc. Holistically, most inhibitions are fear-based. Releasing your inhibitions means letting go of the things that hold you back from saying and doing what you would naturally do if you weren't thinking about the repercussions of it.
Your inhibitions are your creations, sort of like bad habits that can be broken. At some point, you turned your inhibitions into beliefs and you have given them power. You have the power and free will to change or lose your inhibitions. So take Natasha’s advice, because the rest is still unwritten.
