The latest episode of "Better Together" featured self-proclaimed emotional alchemist Xavier Dagba to discuss how people respond to labeling from their peers.

"In one way or another we are labeled - and from a very young age. Labels follow us through to adulthood. You are the crazy one, the sensitive one, the caretaker, the rebel, the troublemaker, the boss, the clown, the diva, the moody one, the brat, the selfish one, the screw up etc," Maria Menounos captioned the video clip on social media.

The recent co-host of "LIVE with Kelly and Ryan" continued, "I've had my share put on me by family, friends and even at work. Worse, we falsely label ourselves. I've done that, too. Deepak Chopra says we play many roles in life, yet we are NOT the roles we play."

She added that her guest, "expands on the notion: how labels do not define you and should not define you and when they do or did define you, how to become aware and how to eliminate the notion. If anyone defines you it's YOU!"
