Something I’ve come to realize lately is that I’m not a fan of labels. “I’m a pansexual.” “I’m a Democrat.” “I’m a Buddhist.” Why do we label ourselves anyway? Who is benefiting from this? Once we label ourselves, aren’t we just naming our limitations?
I heard recently that labels aren’t for our benefit but for others. I don’t know about you but I’m not too keen on anyone trying to “figure me out” or put me in a box. I’m a human being whose ideas are fluid. They’re constantly evolving & molding me into becoming a better person.
How about instead of trying to define others we work on getting to know them as a person? Drop the need for labels & you drop any preconceived notions. I don’t need anyone judging me right off the bat.
Hello, I’m SC. Nice to meetcha!
