Nothing But…

Are you a “nothing but” something?

Nothing but an employee? Nothing but a student? Nothing but a…?

Do you realize that there are so many facets in your life that you can never be a “nothing but…” ever?

One person’s viewpoint cannot turn you into a “nothing but.” It’s impossible. Even if you agree with an individual’s view of you, that you are a “nothing but,” it’s an improper and impossible view to take and/or support.

It’s called reductionism.

It is what turns a human being into a thing in the minds of so many people, and in individuals’ minds, themselves. They have believed a lie that they are a “nothing but” something.

Think about it the next time you have the thought of “I’m nothing but a loser… I guess I’ll just go eat a can of worms.”
