The Paradox of being “Somebody”

  Life is confusing. At least, it can be. I think a major question is how we confront two “truths” which seem to be in conflict. Paradox. For example, on one hand, we have this desire to be “somebody.” Or, perhaps, more accurately, a desire not to be nobody (i.e., nothing). But we also have…
