“Labels are for items on the grocery store shelves, not for people. Let your light shine bright and follow your own voice.” BetterLYF Blog
I so love the above words. So, what are you labelling yourself as today? Single, jobless, broke, unwell, unhappy, doomed or is there some other label your mind is coming up with. I know the mind just wont stop. Yes, I understand that things arent going your way. I know its frustrating and you feel miserable about it. What did I hear? You feel hopeless? Is that true? Yes, your labels make you feel that way. Its a hard time, I agree.
But what if I say that you arent feeling as hopeless as you think. Why? Because you are here reading this post with the hope that it will make you feel better. And I promise that if you read this with an open mind, you will be feeling much better when you finish reading it.
Remove the labels. Yes, you heard it right. Thats all you need to do. You arent some grocery or stationery material which needs to have labels attached to it. Just give up on all those conclusions about yourself. Its pure nonsense. The moment you label yourself as single, your overthinking mind tricks you into believing that this makes you incomplete and there is something lacking in your life. The moment you say you are broke, your mind starts believing that there will never be enough money for you. The moment you say that you are waiting for some good to happen, you are causing unwanted misery to yourself. In this moment, you are whole and complete. You have everything that you need. The love and care in your heart will manifest as a beautiful and worthwhile relationship. The sleepless nights and the courage with which you are weaving your dreams will present as a life beyond your wildest expectations. You are whole, you are complete, you have the power within you to create anything you want. Dont let labels hold you back.
I just received a message from my higher self which says,”I will never say no to you if you say yes to yourself.” Beautiful, isnt it? This reminds me of the inspiring disney quote which says,”No matter how much your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing the dream you have wished for will come true.”
Labels are nothing but illusions. Do you remember that in school days, students were labelled as toppers, average students and failures. Ridiculous, isnt it? That makes no sense at all. Even now, people put labels on to us as anti-social, social, blunt, bold and the list goes on. I was labelled as anti-social during my college days. Even my family thought so. But then my very beautiful friend said to me,” Simply because you do not enjoy meddling with the crowd and love a lot of solo time, doesnt give anyone the right to label you.” And since then, I have believed her words completely.
Labels make you feel either less than or better than others. And both are incorrect. We are all different and we are all special. If you are going through a crisis in your life, trust that its just a process and has got nothing to do with who you truly are. Your power lies in embracing your truth. And there is only one truth. You are who you believe you are. May God bless you.
