Words: Your Key or Your Cage?

Feeling claustrophobic in the labels you or other people ascribe to you?

I get it!

Words have the power to be cage or key—oppress or liberate—physically, psychologically, and socially. Trying to put the complexity of who we are into words can be challenging and limiting. Certain labels and the stories we associate with them are painful and can be difficult to shift. How do we begin to liberate ourselves and show up authentically as our full selves?

I have spent over 10 years on my own personal journey to heal and liberate myself from painful word woundings and have learned many tools that I would love to share with you!

Do you have experiences of limiting words? Do you wish you could peel those labels off like I’m peel these name tags off in this photo? Tell me about it! Drop a comment below 👇
