As a thrifter, I recognize the value of value. Some think that if the label reads a certain name that in fact it yields a certain quality. More often than not, this is just untrue. The purpose of labels are to create a divide. The line dividing the have and have nots can be blurred if well, we all have the same things. Many have turned to thrifting, because the label matters, however the price matters more. For those that have learned the art of the thrift, buying without selling your soul, I applaud you.
Still, labels remain. There are the “good” labels, the high end labels fashion labels. Then there are the labels that remind you that your socioeconomic status will more than likely never change(the bad labels i.e. uneducated, undereducated). There are the” medical labels” that make it easier to swallow a pill or to behave in such manners i.e. diabetic, bi-polar, ADHD. Those labels are just as harmful. Once the label has been attached, much like the ones we choose while we thrift, the label no longer is an item. Instead, the item has now merged with the person. The label now dictates how the person acts, consumes, and reacts. Remember, you are unique embrace it and if you choose put all emphasis on labels. However, wear the label(recognize it) don’t let the label wear you(don’t internalize it). I continue to remain steadfast to my ideology that LABELS ARE NO LONGER NEEDED. How do you feel?
