Is it harmful? Yes! Do we all do it? Yes! Do we have to let it affect us? No! Stereotyping, or labeling, is when you make assumptions about people that you don’t really know. Many people label each other without realizing it. Labels are hard to shake, and they can be really damaging to all of us. Don’t give in to labeling others. Empower yourself by creating your own labels. Show the world that you are more than the assumptions they make.
