Labels should be for clothes

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.

Boxes

Everyone now has to be in a box.

Vegan, in a box.

Christian, in a box.

Atheist, in a box.

Smoker, in a box.

Gay, in a box.

Muslim, in a box.

Right wing, in a box.

Socialist, in a box.

Label us and put us in a box.

It helps us to hate, ridicule, vilify, and feel superior to other boxes.It distracts us from the bigger picture. We’re blind to the real world that is outside our box. We can easily be manipulated once labelled.

Tear down the boxes.

We are all the same human race, equal, worthy, and we will succeed in finding a better world if we are all in the same box as one.

We do not need labelling.

We need to connect with each other instead, label-free, and share empathy, kindness, compassion and love for each other.

If it sounds all a bit fluffy and utopian, have you ever wondered why? The myth-makers that control us, need us in our boxes and tell us their way is the only way. Well, it has been for them but for the rest of humanity, it is not. There are alternatives we’ve never tried.

Together, we would not accept the injustices of the world perpetrated against one box by another led by the myth-makers who make the boxes and the labels.

Jump out of your box, ditch your label and become a free human.

We can all make our difference outside the boxes as one human race.
