Refuse Their Labels

So many times, people want to put us in a box by describing us with something limiting that they are comfortable with.

It’s what bullies do …and other people with self-esteem issues too.

Now these people may even be your loved ones – a husband, your parents or siblings.

They pick on you and call you one name or the other because you aren’t like them, because you don’t fit their mould of what they want you to be.

Hear me, refuse their labels and have faith in the fact that you are unique. You were born an answer to someone’s cry. You don’t have to draw your self-worth from people who do not understand your real value.

Just be you!
