Welcome to the second episode of “Characters We Hate Portrayed by Epic Actors We Love”, today’s special is a couple also from Kamel El Aadad: Farida and Ramzy.
The relationship dynamic between Farida and Ramzy is one that needs to be addressed. Talk about ahem…issues. Farida’s dad leaves her in the US and lives in Egypt, where does that leave Farida? In the arms of Ramzy: the much-older-than-her guy.
This is a dynamic seen in a lot of shows recently and it’s important to shed light on how serious of an issue it is. Younger girls “falling” for the older guy, thinking the guy is mature when the truth is, he is simply older and has had more experience than you. Now how does a Farid break that toxic bond between her and her Ramzy?
Find The Roots of Your Issues
Why are you attracted to him? What made him special? Why do you think you need him? Look deeper into your motives behind this relationship; find what made you believe he’s good for you.
Trust Your Gut
You know that gnawing feeling you felt when you first met him? Honey, those weren’t butterflies those were anxiety attacks in your gut. The thrill of dating someone generally is a high that people go after, and the thrill of dating someone who is usually off limits for any reason whatsoever is multiplied. But it’s not worth it, Farida! You’ll end up crying, and you probably already feel it coming.
In Kamel El Aadad, Farida goes to her grandmas and finds comfort within the girls of her family. That’s one thing we absolutely loved about the show, it showed real and genuine emotion then gave us the instant solution. Solidarity sisters. Go to your female friends/family, and find comfort within this bond.
Cut Ramzy Off
You heard me, he’s bad news and do you know how tell bad news and get it off our chests? We break the news off, ripping a bandaid. Cut him off once and for all, avoid all contact and limit your exposure to anything related to him. Realize that you deserve better than a guy who told you to run away from your home Farida…
