TO BE OR NEVER BE: There is a difference between Doubting your Something-ness and Knowing Your Nothing-ness.

Elaboration: When you doubt your somethingness, you keep asking questions about your abilities of Self, and you keep asking because you are not sure exactly how to improve, change or grow. However, the fact that you are asking means you expect something, and demonstrates that you believe in a form of Self, even if doubting it. When you KNOW your NOTHING-ness, it means you don’t even consider reflecting, inquiring or expecting anything from Self, because the possibility of a meaningful Self does not exist.

(Keep in mind, here, that “Self” does not necessarily mean “individual” – there is a duality of personhood and communal being that makes up the complexity of Afrikan Self)

So: Hold on to your Something-ness – it is in your continuous journey of collecting the dismantled pieces of a fragmented Self, and carefully shaping it towards Complete Being-ness that Afrika is slowly and gradually being rebuilt.
