Why We LABEL!

🤬 “If you don’t agree with me, you are a [label]!” 🤬
.
Why do we label? 🤔
.
It’s important to first acknowledge we need labeling. It helps us put a face to the things we don’t understand. It helps us make sense of our physical reality. It saves our brains a ton of time and energy to generalize people and things. 👍
.
If we didn’t label anything, we’d be downright exhausted trying to always make sense of every single thing we perceive! 😓
.
🌟 But everything contains its opposites. Labeling also has its limits. 🌟
.
How? To the person we are quick to demonize. To the person we are quick to put down to lift ourselves up. To the person we’ve never met yet place their entire existence on a single label. 👤
.
🌟 Labels don’t always serve us. 🌟
.
Constantly generalizing doesn’t help us in seeking to better understand our world. Constantly labeling doesn’t help us in looking outside the box of a label’s definition. 👍
.
🌟 Labeling also gives acceptance to what we believe to be true, even if it objectively isn’t. 🌟
.
It’s easier to generalize than to understand. But let’s not forget how rewarding seeking to understand is 🔎 :
.
📍 To discover there’s an entire world outside our understanding we have yet to explore!
📍 The fulfillment in taking the chance to connect with someone you never thought you’d appreciate and actually connect.
📍 The pleasure in knowing you didn’t let your Generalization Instinct control how you lived your life.
