- nag0ul is an #Egyptian friend with a wicked sense of humour and a passion for life. But today his country colluded in finalising a military coup that began in February 2011 and overturned their Arab Spring.
What happens to our hearts when those we love speak like this?
- What often happens - and I made that mistake to begin with - is to disagree, to argue and to not listen. Then I got it and remembered how lonely I felt when others couldn't bear my expressing my own version of this Dark Night of the Soul.
And I was struggling with my own grief, it being Father's Day and my own father no longer alive. My own grief and the despair of my friend was too much.
- When we are asked to carry more pain than we can cope with, we will crumble eventually. But when the pain is as a result of cruelty, abuse and corruption, anger and rage follows close behind.
