I used to think that assigning myself a label would enable me to face whatever the so-called problem was and then powerhouse through it and be an overcoming-that-shit warrior. I have a new take on this.
“What labels me, negates me.” ― Søren Kierkegaard
I have come to greatly dislike labels, because in reality all they do is mostly keep you stuck. They become your identity if you aren’t careful, and they can create a victim in you where once there was just someone experiencing some trouble.
Life is change. Every single thing changes. We’re in a constant state of motion, and by labeling ourselves we are forcing ourselves to stay stagnant.
If the label is empowering – go for it. If the label will allow you to keep growing and discovering and learning – by all means, slap it on yourself. Lover – spiritual warrior – lightworker. Those, and many others, are empowering to identify with, and we all have preferences. No one is right and no one is wrong.
Listen to your inner guidance. Intuition is golden, and it will always steer you in the right direction for YOU. That’s the key, my friends. It’s about what’s best and right for YOU – and no one – not me, not your friends, not your significant other, not society – knows better than you do what is best for your path and journey.
“It ain’t what they call you, it’s what you answer to.” ― W.C. Fields
