Blackness

Identity a crisis in modern day society

Identity a tug of war, tugging with self, tugging with the other

Identity the knowing of self

Allowing circumstance to define who we are can possibly be the worst catastrophe to happen is one’s life. Whatever the circumstance is, be it good or bad circumstance. It must not define us!

Inside each and every one of us, there’s a still small voice, that guides us, if we INTENTIONALLY ignore the everyday noise and INTENTIONALLY take time to listen within. I personally call it the voice of God guiding me. Listening to the voice within, is a gift guide us

We are living in a fast-paced world, with a mix bag of voices competing to be heard and it can be easy to succumb to a false identity

l often find myself tangled up in ready made labels. ‘She must look like this, she ought to dress like so.

As a black woman before l open my mouth, assumptions are already in waiting. I constantly find myself tumbling across, befitting identity.  Pigeon holed to certain topics, mindsets. Pigeon holed to a square.

Anyway, how do you fit a square into a circle
