I hate labels. I really really really hate labels. It's going to happen and sometimes people don't even mean any harm by labeling you, but I hate labels. It doesn't have to be a bad label for me to hate it, I just hate it. 

Like people don't fit into these tiny boxes so don't label the package. 

There is more to them than what you label them and people don't always fall into one category.
I'm being a bit harsh because I don't mean to be mean about people who unconsciously do it.

I guess for me I just hate being labeled because once people label you, they think they know all there is to know about you.

And honestly, inside of me, I feel so pressured. Like it makes me want to do something to get that label off of me. I won't because labeled or not, I am still going to stick to my convictions and my morals.
In highschool I was the goodie two shoes, the one who was so pure and clean and wholesome and there is nothing wrong with that. Nothing. I am happy to be a person God wants me to be. But when they label me with that and make it sound like that's a bad thing... ugh I hate it. And here I am labeled as that too and even amongst my friends.

I'm not trying to act like or snob or anything. I'm just trying to decipher what's right in God's eyes and I wish people would stop throwing around labels and acting as if trying to follow what's right in God's eyes is a bad thing because it's not. I want to honor and glorify Him and I hate it when people act like I am in the wrong for doing that. Especially other Christians. They think I'm crazy for having high standards sometimes. I'm not going to judge you, but I am going to live up to my moral standards and I need people to stop making me feel bad about my moral standards.

Sometimes I really hate society and I really don't like being surrounded by people you can't take a break from.

Don't get me wrong, I love my friends and I am trying to have a love and compassion for everyone.

But I'm having an off day where I just want to be home and away from the labels.

Labels, labels, labels.

  1. SWEET GIRL. I totally get you. But I feel like I have some verses to share with you:

    John 15:19 ESV
    "If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you."

    Matthew 10:22 ESV
    "and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved."

    Perhaps that's why it's stirred so strongly inside of you to hate labels. Something inside of you wants to be so badly accepted and loved by the world (as it is inside of us all). And the world rejects you because you are s e t a p a r t. You are not of it anymore! You belong to God.

    You are a daughter of the Most High, and He will never forsake you.

    And that's a "label" you should be proud of, girlie. Hold tight. ♥♥♥
