Labeling is a cognitive distortion in which people reduce themselves or other people to a single — usually negative — characteristic or descriptor, like “drunk” or “failure.”


When people label, they define themselves and others based on a single event or behavior. (Copied from https://www.healthline.com/health/cognitive-distortions#emotional-reasoning ; ) 

GROUP DISCUSSION: After reviewing the above definition, how you can break free from negative labels?
