How much do labels matter? | Juwon Ogungbe

If labels were removed from regular parlance, how would we describe anything?

Reflection about such a scenario probably presents a good case for the human inclination towards using categories.

But what if we could agree to simply regard these descriptive words as means to an end?

Is it possible that our lives would change dramatically, because fewer of us would get hung up about preconceived notions?

Quality of life has a lot to do with each person’s self image.
