A label (distinct from signage) is a piece of paper, plastic film, cloth, metal, or other material affixed to a container or product, on which information is written, painted, or symbols used about the product or item.

Labels are Not for people; once they are attached, right or wrong, they hard to shake off.

Most labels are unflattering and hurtful, and in far too many cases they are offensive, (names like, warmonger, hater, cheater, etc.) but I am putting it out there: if anyone feels the need to put a label on me, please call me human, although I prefer Cherry.

When I was a kid growing up in Detroit, the neighborhood kids would say “Here comes that busted and rotten Cherry”; all because of my last name, or they called that Hugh braid hanging down my back, a turd. With all that, I consider myself one of the lucky ones, but just for the record: I prefer, Blessed, because I outgrew that label, now they call me pretty. 🙂

When we define ourselves or allow others to define us in a particular way, we have reached the age of self-awareness and looking to be recognized among our peers; this is probably the start of our reputation, and labeling; the picture we paint of ourselves to show the world who we want them to think we are.

Because of the New Norm,, the pictures some of us paint is oftentimes as close to Hell than most of us deserve to be; this type of atmosphere is creating an environment that is toxic for all. With all the hate that’s being spewed, now would be a good time to pray for a true and honest representation of who we and others say they are. There are too many of us flailing over the Truth.

Some labels leave others under the impression they have some type of special aura that makes them above the rest, coupled with a gut feeling that never fails because they think they know it all and is labeled as such.

Most who are labeled as know it all’s, don’t know as much as they think they know because no one knows it all, and they never think they could be wrong, so some never learn, just like those who are labeled as big mouths; they just can’t keep their mouths shut.

The Big Mouth label is troublesome, mainly because that nic-name seems to hold water.

For instance, you believed you would be getting a promotion because a little birdie told you so, and because of your reputation you thought you earned it and most believed you; they trusted your words; they say.

In the meantime, the promotion that was expected didn’t happen for whatever reason. What’s next, you ask through the anger and embarrassment, while a few peers may hope for the best, the others are waiting for your fall…

What happened is called Reality. Sometimes expectations can get us caught up in situations that will contribute to our disappointments, like claiming our future off the backs of others using fake information, bad intentions and a false narration of who we really are, coupled with this is a sure way to gain a label you won’t be proud of.

All am saying is if we decided to make judgments on things unknown, then sharing that information (co-workers, haters, family, friends) without any reference to the truth, we could be setting ourselves up for a disaster.

Also, with a know it all attitude, we could be setting ourselves up to be labeled as a liar. Oh, that job thing, maybe the employer labeled you as being overconfident?

FYI: When that gut feeling is in control, make sure it’s not gas.

Without actual occurrence, documentation, or at lease reasonable trusted knowledge of what you say, fake news has a tendency to travel faster than the speed of light and can be heard further and wider than any truth; labeling you a false prophet.

Today there seem to be far more disruptive people labeling others wrongly than we previously thought. The thing is all it takes is one bad actor, coupled with some clueless followers willing to take labeling to the next level.

If I was to put labels on demonization (the portrayal of something as wicked and threatening), it would be transparency and traceability. Anand Mahendra.

In my opinion, using labels like Dog, Gunplay, Slick just to name a few, are names chosen to illustrate exactly what others think of you or you yourself. I suggest we break the chain of offering up bad labels because trying to live up to some of them is exactly what not to do or be. It’s bad for the Community.

Names also label people who come from a particular class, geographical area or genealogy. Did you know having the power to label others is the power to destroy, and did you know most times the wicked pull the walls down on themselves? Strange? Not really, more like stupid.

The majority of people are not into giving themselves ugly names; we’re are not talking about all nicknames, labels, etc, am talking about when someone else sees another as being whatever that name is addressing with a negative tone as such: (cheating Eddie, begging Betty, Bighead Darrel, Jake the Killer).

Did you know, like labels, certain names can be lifetime triggers that are unhealthy and labels like Mr. Bigshot can be the prison that put a damper on your true potentiality? There has got to be drama when you are Mr. Big. In other words, you have to keep that persona up, true or false. Where is the peace in that presser cooker?

What if you’ re not him? Is your reputation of yourself a fraud? I say that’s a lot of baggage,

Most times when we compare ourselves to others, we have a tendency to start labeling ourselves with undeserved tags. This is not you so Avoid this practice at all cost if you want to have an effective label such as having high self-esteem, and or including high expectations.

Now don’t get it twisted, like I said not all name changes are bad, take marriage for instance; it is a recognition of a spiritual identity.

When it comes to people with the most undesirable names I steer clear. When they tell you who they are, I believe them the first time.

It’s Something To Think About?
