People are so comfortable with labels that they tend to put one on everyone and if they think that we don’t fit in the labels they have put on us, they proceed to change us slowly and according to what they think we should be. It is like we are clay and if we don’t fit into their mold we can’t belong.

The worst thing is it never stops. It starts in our childhood with constant comparisons and it continues for the rest of our lives and at one point we get so used to it that we start doing it to ourselves without realizing. How many times have we looked at a dress and thought no, what will people say? How many times have our life decisions been based on the dictates of the faceless society?

Introvert, extrovert, you talk too much, you talk too less. You dress like you are going to walk on the ramp, you dress like a prude, overconfident, shy… So many things, so many labels. It is not only the shops that categorize things, people are categorized too.

Sometimes all it takes is a pen, a paper, and a wandering mind.

This is a problem with out world. Labeling everyone! These labels tend to become ropes that tie a person from doing something different,

    I agree and then that person has no option but to be tied to it for the rest of his/her life

In this era people are defined on the basis of their labels which is not good and at some point labels complete us which again is not healthy but think that how can we define labels like if someone labelled us positively we may feel overwhelmed but if the same person labelled us negatively then that may be disturbing for us.

    The problem is that no one does it positively. It is always negative.
