I guarantee there is someone out there who can’t wait to police what you say and who you support.
I guarantee this is one of the big reasons you haven’t started or finished that post, book, movie, song or whatever way you want to speak your truth.
Because it is scary to be shamed publicly. It is scary to be told you are wrong. It is scary to be “cancelled.”
And the reality is sometimes you (we) are gonna mess up and say something truly problematic and need to face the music & clean it up.
But sometimes you will express what’s most true in your heart and it’s going to feel like a punch in the gut when someone disagrees or responds violently.
It’s going to make you (us) want to crawl into a hole and hide forever.
Most of the time though we don’t even get to the point of attracting this hate.
Nope. Instead we anticipate it and hide in advance. We censor ourselves ahead of time.
And then we wind up with bland creations that don’t feel joyful to create or share.
And this blocks the rest of our creative flow.
When we don’t let our big truth come through, nothing wants to come through anymore.
Our muse gets confused and shuts down.
This is why it is so important to get right with the potential backlash or criticism.
This is why it is so important to figure out what your nervous system needs to feel safe.
This is one piece of what I cover in my free course, Create & Flow.
