Being so open with his audience means that those listening to flowerkid are likely to be more comfortable expressing their own thoughts and feelings, rather than keeping them locked away.

Please listen and watch as my internal and external struggles flourish into bloom. I can’t wait for you to hear this excerpt of my heart and soul.” Check out everyone has a breaking point below - it's a special listen.
