An aside on labels, identity, and being a proof of concept

Earlier this week I posted about how some people need you to be a proof of concept that their own identity is valid. Here’s another aspect that I didn’t talk about. Sometimes people need you to be a proof of concept that the ways in which they are labeled are not their identity. We have the opportunity to show, through the way we treat others and through our own stories that we don’t need to be defined by our baggage, nor do we need to define someone else by their baggage. This is why I like this campaign from People of The Second Chance. Click on the link below the picture to see what it’s all about.

 NEW POTSC CAMPAIGN LAUNCH: LABELS LIE | People of the Second Chance.

People Of The Second Chance recently launched a campaign called “Labels Lie”. You should check the campaign out. Here’s who POTSC say they are.

We are a global community of activists, imperfectionists and second chancers committed to unleashing radical grace everyday, in every moment, for everyone.

We challenge the common misconceptions about failure and success and stand with those who have hit rock bottom in their personal and professional lives. We are a community that is committed to stretch ourselves in the areas of relational forgiveness, personal transparency and advocate for mercy over judgment.
