Labeled Naturally

It’s so much easier to label than to listen. 

Today has been a day of low grade friction.  Sparing you the details is easy because the details don’t make me look so good.

When criticized I naturally check one of the following correct answers beneath the question below in my mind:

This person is ________________.

A) conservative

B) liberal

C) prude

D) licentious

E) cynical

F) critical

G) hypocritical

H) stupid

I) mean

J) shallow

K) arrogant

L) judgmental

M) weird

Once you’re labeled your words are much easier to dismiss or dismantle.  And so are you.
