Talk to the artists, creators and founders of history’s most inspiring novels and albums; causes and charities, and you’re likely to find vulnerability and, more so, chaos, at the root of their lives’ keystone creations. Instead of denying or suppressing negative emotions, these artists worked with, not against, negativity to bring solace to both themselves and others. For every Frank Sinatra breakup album and existential Emily Dickinson poem, however, there are thousands of everyday people expressing themselves in creative ways they never thought possible had they not been forced to deal with the inexplicable. From traditional outlets like journaling and painting to unconventional endeavors like roller derby and capoeira, our options are as diverse as the struggles that drive us to them.
