Some miscommunication occurs when we are struggling to refine our voice. Our voice is our words, both spoken and written. It is our tone, attitude, affect, dress, art, work and overall vibe and energy that introduces both our strengths and weaknesses in subtle ways. Our voice is the creative and logical expression of our minds and souls. It is no wonder it is difficult to communicate the vast terrain of our thoughts into mere words. We try to teach children to develop that voice, but it is a lifelong process.
Even the most verbal person can be stuck in blockages that misinterpret what we are trying to say. Many things can censor our voice, including fear, trauma, depression, and anxiety. One of the things life gives us is the avenue to develop our voice. Yet whatever has the power to give to us, also holds the power to take, as life's struggles can mute our voices as well.
Without a voice, indignities of all levels occur in silence and held internally with as much dignity as we can muster. Still, that voice needs to be released and heard, but first, it needs to be understood and refined so that when it is released, it makes sense to its owner. Making sense to others is not as vital, but it is a byproduct.
If you have a piece of your voice that you have been robbed of, how do you get it back? What have you said that has taken courage for your voice to express? What are the most courageous words your voice released? What words did you say to shatter your fear? The world is forced to hear so much senseless chatter. Don't you think the world deserves to hear the symphony of your voice?
