YOU ARE NOT YOUR TRAUMA
Labeling refers to a theory of social behaviour which states that the behaviour of human beings is influenced significantly by the way other members in society label them.
This is extremely powerful, in life we have society, family, a system that labels us. We are so young when these labels are put on us, are start to believe in them and then in turn are a self fulfilling prophecy.
By the same logic, positive labelling by society can influence individuals to exhibit positive behaviour.
Start the unlearning process of your labels. What have you been labeled before? Or what do you label yourself?
You don’t have to be labeled your trauma. It is not you. It does not define you. One way you can move past your traumas is by letting go of labels that you or others have put on yourself.
Vulnerability moment here…some labels I put on myself hearing from others…I’m not skinny enough, I’m not smart enough, I’m not pretty enough…in other ways trauma I went through as a young adult transformed how I made relationships with my partners and they were all in unhealthy ways. If you see a pattern in your relationships that are unhealthy/toxic, it’s usually a pattern within you that you are manifesting. From being sexually abused so young, I manifested abusive relationship after each one, until just recently after 5 years of healing through several traumas, I thought I had been “healed” but the healing work never stops. You can find yourself in another pattern later in life…I found myself in one, in my marriage, it had spiraled into a toxic relationship where I ignored red flags in the name of LOVE. And that’s ok. The healing work begins. After healing and still healing from divorce and still being a family…in new relationships I have already repeated a cycle and broken one. Keeping yourself aware ALL THE TIME, is so important.
