You are more than a label

You are not just a diagnosis. You are not just a label. You are also your experiences. You are the way you were raised, what your culture taught you about yourself, what your personality tendencies are. You are a complex mix of all these things, added in with unique qualities we all innately possess that cannot be easily described or quantified. It is certainly helpful sometimes to have a word to describe the symptoms we experience. That can help us make sense of what is happening to us. But it is not us. It is never our destiny. No label, no diagnosis will never describe our whole selves. It is also important to understand how our culture and upbringing influence the way we act in the world. There is always more to us that we can cultivate. We are not defined by our labels. We are not defined by our pasts. We are infinite mosaics of possibilities. #notalabel #mentalhealth #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealththerapist #somatictherapy #diagnosis #wholeness #wholeself
