    Ammar could seek discomfort once again and take sometime to go back and fulfill his compulsory military service, so that he makes it up for his country which nurtured and educated him and also with his family who shall see him differently after that.

    I totally get what u mean @9:17 I have always said the same thing to family and friends, it was so surreal the first time I had a friend come visit me in my home country and saw her sitting in the same place as my sister and cousin so so surreal to have the two universes smashed together lol

    I am not sure why it got to disowning him, especially when I never saw Ammar drink or do anything “totally” inappropriate. Sure some things were not in line with Arab traditions and religions and he sometimes pointed things like those out, but they were more on the minor side, nothing to be disowned about.

    I’ve only discovered Yes Theory and subscribed yesterday. The videos are absolutely excellent, and some have completely changed my view on my own life and the direction it’s headed in. I just watched Ammars video where he openly discusses his father and the choice he has been forced to make between his life and his family. I noticed the comments were switched off so found this video to comment under.I too have been in the same position with a father that has little understanding of anything outside of his own experiences. Call it it a fear of something they haven’t experienced it it whatever you wish, but it was such a painful time I didn’t want to live through. Sometimes you have to take your ability of understanding and acceptance and stretch it as far as you possibly can to accommodate the expectations of someone you love, because you love them or because they’re blood. Love is unconditional and blood isn’t a choice. Like Ammar, I had to push through and keep doing what I was doing. I had no other choice. It was either that or absolutely depression because you’re expected to relive someone else’s life through their control. Now my dad has come to appreciate the good in me. He still can’t connect the way I know he would like to, and parts of me are still and will always be alien to him, but he accepts that I have to do what I have to do and he tolerates parts of me because of our blood connection. Things are so much better now and I don’t suffer from the constant worry, stress, depression or any other negative feeling that I felt when I was being forced to take a path that was someone else’s life/dream. Well done Yes family.

    I don't remember I ever hug my ma, just kiss her hand and all that but I can never remember I hug her... Maybe when I was young. We're not so touchy in the family and I kinda feel I missed something and I don't know if I'll be brave to hug her... Strange, isn't it... And shameful for I have no courage to do so.
