As soon as we ‘label’ something or somebody, we ‘pigeonhole’ and limit our perspective and destroy the magic.
We have a need to ‘categorise’ in order to make sense of our world. But that very process can be very damaging. And we categorise ourselves too, often in very negative terms. How often do we hear the phrase ‘I couldn’t possibly do that. It’s beyond me. I’m hopeless at this or that!’
