Life On The Other Side Of Mental Illness

Do You Get Labeled By Others?

I often find people who don’t know me put me in boxes. ‘Dumb Blonde’, ‘Posh Girl’, being just two stereotypes I often have to fight against! But when I left my job and started to make my own way down The Unmarked Road, those same people couldn’t cope with the mirror I held up to their own boxes that they trapped themselves in, and instead new names were assigned to me. ‘Reckless’, ‘Dreamer’, ‘Irresponsible’. I am PROUD to be an outside the box type of person! To see where a life without labels can lead.

Are there any boxes people put you in? Which ones do you fight against more? What is it you would rather have people notice about you?

  1. Living with the stereotypical single dad’s are dumbasses and don’t know what they are doing tends to get a little old for me!

      I can imagine! I will never understand why people can’t just practice tolerance and kindness instead of constant judgement. Or if they can’t manage that, at the very least learn to mind their own business!

  2. I’m trying not to care what people think about me but i’m finding it hard to stop wondering what negative things they might think at the time. I know it’s mainly what i would think about myself and not just what they might be thinking so it’s an internal struggle i need to let go. I don’t think you should care what others think about you either but i know it’s easier said than done. We should just do our best at what we want to do and stay away from the people who judge and call people names. I think we need to concentrate on the ones who share our values and not rise to anyone who’s trying to get a reaction out of us. I hope you’re well and you’ve had a nice honeymoon!

      Thank you Daniel, I am very well and hope you are too! 🙂 Yes it’s so important (but sometimes hard) to concentrate on the positives and not to project our own insecurities. Work in progress, always hehe.
