All human beings are born creators, sadly we are taught and conditioned from an early age ‘don’t make a mess’ or ‘colour within the lines’, essentially take out the risk and do as you are told. Follow the programme.
It’s a repeating process because the children become the adults and the same de-risking process is continued generation after generation.
A question we can ask ourselves is ‘what did I create today?’. We don’t have to be creating huge amazing things, but a step by step daily process of small creations leads to an amazing creation.
Our sense of fulfilment can be satisfied by creating and rarely by simply doing the same tasks every day.
Often, once someone is labelled they become the label. There is little room for a person to change and they become treated for their ‘label’. There is always judgement and stigmas associated with the label. A chance for others to feel good that they aren’t in that category.
We are all unique human beings, and it is easy to tag us, far harder to accept our differences and be understanding and empathetic towards each other. It’s like sorting things into boxes, great for order and easy, but with people the complete opposite to what is needed, we aren’t just things to be separated by an arbitrary judgement of another human.
Labels on humans are far harder to remove once placed. Labels should be for clothes, not people.
