    Good message headlines, however:

    1) Who told you that there’s a difference ingrained in you just by being an “Ibo girl”. That’s part of Nigeria’s problems, seeing things from tribal lenses.

    2) I am a forty year old person with broken dreams and unrealised aspirations as you specifically mentioned.
    I’m not a living dead. I am very angry with the many cruel and self-centered people I’ve met in this country who took my honesty for naivety and proceeded to cheat me; but I’m not angry with the world. I love life. The concepts you expound here are carry over concepts from a place of opportunities where the system is fair to all. If you think that’s the case with your country, you’re sorely missing the point and you better thank God for your good luck. People are hurting in this country and it is so sad that if you do not become a “success”, you will never be excused: it is immediately your fault. This is why good or bad is of little value in this country because everyone realises they must “make it” or be damned. I have been damned. But my friend, I’m at peace with myself. I know I did my part in what was supposed to be my contract with society. But I also value morality: the concept of universal right and wrong matters a great deal to me and Nigeria is not a place to have such values.

    Procrastination is the thief of ambition, but hey don’t go too far or you could shoot yourself in the foot.
