Labels …why ? ..Why is it that we label everything in our minds and in our lives ? Why do we see something and automatically add a label to it ? Can we not as supposedly mature adults see something or someone and not right away subconsciously add a label to it ? Whether it is right or wrong the label gets attached and that is the end of it , and nothing takes away that label once it is there , for instance we see an ambulance and right away mind says ok someone in trouble , all is ok label attached all is well. There are so many things we add labels too that I do not think I have the room, time , or effort to cover them all , lol, be here all day and that is not on lol .
As well as things we stick labels on people and this is 1 part of our incessant labelling of things that I really hate as more often than not we are so very wrong in our judgement and yes labelling is a judgement look at her she is so skinny she needs to eat more , and the truth is maybe she does eat but is 1 of the ones that can never put on weight ( lucky ducks ) The opposite is when we see someone over weight we automatically think shes fat must eat like a pig and never move off her fat bum. This too can be so wrong as I myself have a thyroid problem that I just cannot beat and nothing I do moves it . This then is true of so many people and not just women men have thyroid problems too and also get labeled as just a fattie . We seem to be so ready to judge without even knowing the person or their history or background .
Now we come to labeling of the food and other goods we buy , now this sort of labeling is very necessary as we need to know what we are buying , if it is food we must know what is in the food , anything to prevent allergies as again I myself have suffered terribly because something was in something I ate but not on the label which would have prevented me from even buying it much less eating it had I known it was in there . We also need the right labelling to be on so many things to prevent disaster , like medicines of all kind and even car parts , get the wrong part and just watch the damage , it will be noisy and expensive to then re-fix. labelling of almost everything …except people ..is very , very necessary . Just wish some people would either stop labelling people altogether or keep their judgements to themselves as they can be very hurtful .
Other types of labeling are for when we fill up the freezer , other wise how will we know just what is in each bag, box or container , right hubby dear ? lol We were going to have a meat pie for a meal and he had said it’s ok we do not need to label these we know which ones they are , so ok pie taken out and left to thaw . Sometime later come to re-heat pie and ..lol… what was it ? An apple pie …now what was it you said dear ? We will know the one we want ? No need to label these ones ? hehehehehe Wrong dear …but I still love ya …just …next time let’s just put a label on before I label you ….:P ..lol
Another thing we label all the time is music , there is country , rock , rhythm & blues , etc etc etc , but the worst of the labels is the ones we call ” ear worms ” man I hate it when I get 1 of those because it takes hours to get rid of the thing even if it is a song I love , after all it does get to the stage where it is a case of yes , ok, know it now, please stop it ..When we get to this stage though the ear worm has been there way too long and it is time to get rid of it . There is a category too we do not think of too much but is nevertheless a true 1 it is the ” Haves & Have nots ” while we try not to admit this to ourselves it is also very true and we all at 1 point or another we look at someone and right away know they either have everything or have nothing or somewhere in the middle .
So how do we stop this incessant need to label everything ? How do we stop and try to be more thoughtful and more caring ? This labelling has been going on for so many years I sincerely think now there is no way to stop doing it , even though you can see by a persons face sometimes just what they have labelled you . The look they get on their faces , the way the look goes up and down you and you know right away they have labelled you , right or wrong the label is there . People do not seem to know how to hide their feelings or do not care that they may be wrongfully labelling and therefore hurting someone. Society these days has changed so much that almost no one has the manners to keep these things to themselves and it is a real shame ..
Keep the dream alive, hit the snooze button.!!
