Labels

Labels aren’t helpful. In fact, most often they are used to silence and/or exclude, and so they are enemies of understanding and healing. Even seemingly helpful labels such as “racist” are used that way, to exclude people from a discussion. We need to move beyond them if what we want is true healing. On the other hand, if you just want to seek revenge without healing and without change, keep on slinging labels.
