Labels & Boxes are for Packages-Not Your Identity

 

Labels are useful items. They help our minds organize the chaos that life would be without them. Labels allow us to place a person, place, or thing into the proper category so we can think in terms groups instead of units. There are drawbacks to labels when they are used to categorize a person’s circumstance or potential.

 

I’ve had this experience in my own life. Interestingly enough I was double labeled, first by doctors, then I chose to slap a sticker on my own forehead. Being labeled is like being shot without realizing it. You don’t feel the pain until you notice the bleeding.

 

The label you place on yourself is the most impactful. However, when you place a label on yourself, you are usually adopting someone else’s label of you. The acceptance of this label is similar to the awareness of being shot. You will begin to act accordingly. This label will dictate your beliefs and the subsequent attitudes and behaviors.

 

Negative labels suffocate human potential. They place you in a box created from misimpressions and snap judgments, whereas positive labeling fosters unlimited possibilities.

 

Once you are placed in a box, all likelihoods of being more dissolve, and you begin to only function within the dimensions of the box. All your options will conform to the limitations of this container.

 

When I labeled myself, I traded capacity for a category I slowly became and placed restraints on my abilities. Once I filled the limitations of the mold, it became apparent I surrendered many options. After this realization, I started to wonder about living sticker-free, and out of this mold, I placed myself.

 

Before I was labeled, I functioned with a level of competence, while experiencing a few bearable, albeit frustrating, impediments. To regain my power I chose to relinquish the label and reemerge as Naomi, full of potential and boundless. While this didn’t diminish the disadvantages I faced, the options available to me became unlimited.
