Who are you? It seems like a simple question, but it goes much deeper than we realize. When meeting a new person, we immediately start looking for common ground. We use labels to categorize our lives. We introduce ourselves as “Mrs….” or “daughter of…”, etc. In reality, none of these labels are who we are. We are God’s highest form of creation. Humans are complex organisms that can’t be easily categorized, but we always try to fit into a label.
Unfortunately, when a long attached label gets ripped off, we feel like we have lost our identity. We feel empty and lost. That’s when we need to remember that we are much more than the label in the first place.
You are not:
- Your name
- Your job title
- Your family
- Your location
- What others think of you
- Your Accomplishments
Who are you pretending to be?
Sometimes we take on labels that aren’t beneficial for us. We want to feel accepted and loved, so we take on labels. The problem is we live our lives governed by these labels, and we don’t even realize it. Some of these labels aren’t even ours. They were passed down generations and belonged to a grandparent.
How To Change The Label:
The good news is you can change the label at any time. It might take a little work, but it can be done. The key is to replace the unwanted label with another, more empowering one. You can’t take one away without replacing it, or you will fall back on the old one.
First, you must ask yourself, “who am I?” Write down all the labels that come to mind. Then systematically go through each one and decide if it benefits you. If it doesn’t, then take active steps to determine what you want to be. Then go about changing to the new one.
Affirmations are one of the best tools to reprogram your subconscious mind. Write down the labels you want to acquire. Post them on your bathroom mirror, so you see them daily. Speak them out loud. Actively work at seeing yourself as the new label. Soon you’ll find that you have become the label, and you’ll look back and wonder when everything changed.
