And they don’t do it because they’re mean or jerks or want to limit your life.
It’s just much more convenient for our brains to label someone, put them in a box and keep the wiring in our heads neatly organized.
Imagine having to limit your life because it’s convenient for someone else’s brain wiring.
Nonsense! As soon as you allow someone to do this to you———you’re doomed!
Remember how rich a human life is, and how silly it is to merely call someone a “writer” or “entrepreneur” or “teacher” or “artist” or “mom”——we all contain multitudes!
And the biggest gift you can give to others is to remind them of this, once you remind yourself.
Take the labels away; even if it is a little less convenient! It’s richer!
