Too often we’re quick to label & put people in boxes.
Because it’s easier.
And it definitely makes some folks way more comfortable.
“Ah, you’re an XYZer. “
“Ah, you like XYZ.”
“Now I can file you away as an XYZ type.”
This frees up the body and brain to move on… BUT.
Yeah, big BUT.
Most of the time the label is misguided, wrong or shallow.
Often very shallow — skimming the surface of the true depths of another human being.
We can choose to replace assumptions with questions.
We can choose to replace labels with listening.
To being in the practice of curiosity.
