This snippet explores how labels and personality traits are not as permanent as we think they are and how labelling ourselves and others can be limiting.

Following watching this clip, Sandrine shared her insights…

You know Bron, when at the end you say that let’s work on strategies to overcome your shyness, or your depression, or your anxiety….and that this does not always work and you feel bad for it… 

While listening to this it occurred to me that these are likely not to work since they make you look even more in the direction of shyness or depression. It makes you question, oh do I still feel shy now? Do I still feel depressed? Oh here you go, depressed thoughts coming back straight away… 

Where if you look more at the moments when you are not shy, when you are not depressed, (despite the fact that you believe you are always shy and depressed when you are caught in the middle of it) then your mind starts focusing on these other moments. Thank you, that was very cool to realise that.
