“Sorry, I’m babbling…”
“…I know, I’m rambling…”
“…Is this making any sense?”
After holding intimate conversations with hunnnndreds of artists, writers, entrepreneurs + big, brave thinkers — teachers + students, clients + friends — I’ve noticed a pattern.
When people attempt to talk about The Big Stuff — who they are, what they believe in,
and what they’re trying to add to the world — they (almost always) apologize for “babbling,” “rambling” or “not making sense.”
Sometimes they’re right. But usually … not.
Here’s why: we’re all terrified that we’re invisible + inconsequential + incoherent + that nobody “gets” us.
Happily, we’re all wrong.
I’m here to tell you … you are understood.
Not perfectly, not every single time, and perhaps not with the depth + complexity of understanding that you yearn for.
But you are understood. By me. By many. More than you know.
Keep talking. Keep writing. We get it.
