Expressing Honestly in NVC might be described as speaking from the heart (as visually depicted in the current interim NVCwiki logo), with focus on Observations, Feelings, Needs and Requests framed with NVC language and intentions. Such NVC expression may be most effective if it follows self-empathy and empathy for another person if possible. In this way, the intention is more likely to be centered in letting others know what's alive in you rather than attachment to an outcome or strategy. As such, NVC expression may not require words at all and tends to evoke strategies that address everyone's needs equally.
