Why You’re NOT Your Labels (PERSONAL)

I know this will be hard for some people to hear. โค๏ธ

Throughout my life I used to tell myself who I believed I was. And in turn it dictated all the actions I would take. It’s all I ever thought I was, so why try anything different? ๐Ÿ‘

One of those labels included: “Introvert”. ๐Ÿ˜Š

But eventually I realized what others told me about who I was was in fact limiting me. Not just that, I realized what I was also telling myself about who I was also limiting me! It went both ways! ๐Ÿ˜…

Why? I was using the labels I embraced as part of myself AS AN EXCUSE, RATHER THAN AN EXPLANATION, to not step outside my comfort zones. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

๐Ÿ“Œ “I’m an Introvert…(an excuse for why I won’t speak on a stage).”

๐Ÿ“Œ “I’m an Empath…(an excuse for why I won’t be open to hearing constructive criticism).”

๐Ÿ“Œ “I’m a Capricorn…(an excuse for why I won’t commit to a relationship).”

And I’ll add as a Capricorn, I consider introversion and empathy parts of my own character traits as well! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Do we each have individual tendencies that come more naturally to us? 100%, I’m not denying that! ๐Ÿ’ฏ

But what I’m saying is that regardless of your natural tendencies you don’t have to let these parts always be running the show. You don’t have to let your self-identified labels stop you from trying new things and seeing what other parts of your personality has yet to be developed! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Who knows? You might discover a new part of yourself! โค๏ธ

Maybe you have an inner Extravert that’s just waiting to be awakened! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Not at all! Far from it! ๐Ÿ˜…

Filming this video back in 2018 was extremely out of my comfort zone. You wouldn’t know it from watching, but it really was! ๐Ÿ‘

My heart was pounding. I hesitated before I was about to film. My mind started to think about how I should film it. I debated on the “perfect” angle and the “right” time. ๐Ÿ˜จ

But once I stopped overthinking and just hit the Record button this was the end result! ๐Ÿ™Œ
