“Good Friday & my friends…
I learned that two of my friends are in dispute. I learned that a few days back in confidentiality from one of them while asked for my opinion and not to interfere.
I gave my opinion, and that was about how I would react when a colleague that became a friend gives his opinion as a colleague in a non-pleasant way. Of course, my comment was not well received, but I believe that honesty was due and important.
Yesterday was Good Friday to the Catholics, both my friends are Muslims, both of us are going through the fasting period religiously, and I know that they both are. So, I decided to target their conflict, indirectly, by writing the below on our common group on WhatsApp:
Nothing beats a peaceful mind like a peaceful soul.
Today the Catholic relive Good Friday.
I am Greek Orthodox (our Good Friday is next week) but since no one knows, what if,
Good Friday is today, I celebrate both; & since I believe that I am only human, I cannot be God,
I simply tell you, that love and forgiveness are the only weapons we need to change the world.
There are many similarities in all religions, faith is the core for us all!
After I sent the message, I received a word related to the day, then the other friend explained the situation to me in a private discussion. Again, I gave my advice, and I believe I was able to get them to speak things over.
The problem with conflicts among adults is that ego plays a role that stands in between; not to forget if the conflict is between two genders!
As I said earlier, I am not God, I cannot forgive those who hurt me, I have a duty to resolve the conflict, to talk it over, to establish a peaceful connection…
Notice, I used the word connection and not a relationship, I do believe that scars will seal but not disappear, I believe they bleed again when similar situations and events arise, I believe they become dormant!
But in the end, peace must prevail in my heart before others, simply for me to move forward and not to remain stuck in a muddy spot!”
