Is it ever okay to "spell it out?"

I ask this because of how in fandoms, certain things in a show or book or any sort of story can go over people's head with certain subtleties, making them think the author was being lazy. While some may be able to get it, others wouldn't. On the flip side, spelling things out could come off as you thinking your readers are idiots that need every damn thing explained. Which isn't good.
This is an issue with me since I'm damn awful at elaborating on something like a character's inner conflict or psychological stuff. Hell, I'm praying that you're getting at least the gist of what I'm getting at with this thread.
