A teacher who puts us down, a parent who declares negative words over us, a spouse who puts a negative name on us, in the workplace, on the street, in the church, in sports – just about anywhere we go, labels can and do get placed on us.
How often we suffer enormously from the negative labels other people have attached to us. What happens to these words – these labels? They stick all over us, and can become part of our everyday self-talk. When I take the time to investigate these labels that I feel have stuck on me, I have a choice. I can choose to peel off the label. I can even replace those old labels with new ones of my own choosing. Speaking these new labels releases the power within me to become whatever it is that I desire. It’s like taking off old, dirty clothes, and putting on brand new clothes!
Taking time to examine the labels I have allowed to be put on me is a good exercise. I can ask myself, “Is that really true?” Finding out the answer to that question can change everything.
