n cliché [ˈkliːʃei, (American ) kli:ˈʃei]
a phrase which has been used too often, and has become meaningless.
As many of you know, I am a person who probably uses WAY TOO MANY OF THESE... And, if by definition, these cliche's are "used too often, and have become meaningless", then how do you still be you and yet communicate it in such a way that what you say doesn't "become meaningless?" well, I've heard it said that Nothing is more dangerous than an idea, when it's the only one you have. Are "cliche's" the only thing you have to say?
I think that one way you can still be you (use A Lot of cliche's) and still be heard is to make sure the other things you say have merit... Don't just talk to talk... A phrase I use with my kids and wife goes like this, "Say what you mean, and mean what you say..." The words we use are very important, they have the power to lift someone up, or tear someone down...
NOW, go and use the right words... (even if they ARE cliche's)
