Earlier this week, I had a session with a gifted client who is yearning to more boldly liberate her voice in both her business and personal life. She admitted that she doesn't feel free to fully express herself to others when her message isn't quite clear or figured-out-enough.
Boy, do I get it. AND I've recently discovered two things:
Expression IS the path to clarity. It's not about withholding expression until you find the answers... in fact, it's just the opposite.
When we feel stuck - in need of motivation, clarity, or direction - that is precisely when showing up is most essential. In the same way that ritualized movement naturally realigns the body and restores wellness... ritualized expression naturally realigns us with our voice, revealing clarity.
So what do you say when you don't know what to say?
The clearest expression is the realest one. Expressing what's most-real in the moment (even if it's a muddled admission of sheer confusion) will many times serve your path to clarity far more than hiding out and/or presenting the false pretense of having it all figured out.
If you want to offer an idea or sentiment (be it to a loved one, coworker, or prospective buyer), you'll be far more heard... and far more credible in the long term... if you tell the whole truth vs. a version of the story that gives them only what you think they want in the now.
Enduring relationships of any kind require the strength to speak to the truth of the moment, especially when vulnerability and insecurity is up. Not sure what to say, Reader? Speak to exactly where you are, and clarity will find its way to you faster.
