How to Stop Labeling People
- If you’re labeling people based on their clothes, imagine that you were dressing like them, and think whether or not that would change who you were. Chances are it wouldn’t, so no matter how they dress, it’s what’s inside that makes a difference.
- If you’re labeling people based on their attitude (pushy, rude, overly friendly, stingy, etc.) consider what type of day that person was having, and how that could possibly have put them in a bad, or unfriendly (etc.) mood.
- If you are labeling people based on the color of their skin, remember what a small genetic variation skin pigments represent. And that under that paper thin layer of skin, we’re all the same nasty bloody guts and bones.
How to Stop labeling People
If one wants to stop projecting onto others, one most
accept themselves fully and truthfully evaluate
themselves in a clear-minded manner.
One must accept and bring up the things about them
they are uncomfortable with. One has to work
through these issues and let go of limiting beliefs in
order to find total self acceptance
It is said the problem with labels is that they are merely shells that contain assumptions.
When we are taken in by a label, we are taken in by opinions and beliefs. This makes you
wonder why people see only a narrow view of an expansive and complicated human being.
Labels are assumptions. It obscures the contents of the individual.
“Labeling is a process of creating descriptors to identify persons who differ from the norm.
Normal is a broad relative term. Everyone is different in some way from someone else” (Darrow and White).
“Labeling is definitive; once we say it then it holds meaning” (Namka).
A stereotype is used to catergorize a group of people. People don’t understand that type of person,
so they put them into classifications, thinking that everyone who is that needs to be like that,
or anyone who acts like their classifications is one.
