BBNaija S6 Naija Shine Ya Eye, the housemate Angel, burst into tears in the garden as she recounted past experiences that made her feel guilty and sad.
Arin was there to comfort her and encourage her through it all, as she (Arin) was almost in tears too.
In her mood swing, Angel recounts how badly she treated her great-grandmother when she was young and blamed herself for the old woman’s death.
Arin comforted her, “You can cry and it’s okay to feel that way, but you can’t give up on yourself. It’s got to be tough this way.”
“I feel so bad for myself because of something I’ve done. I feel like it’s because of the way I treated my great-grandmother, that’s why God took her away from me,” Angel exclaimed.
Arin said to her, “Angel, you were ten. How could you have treated her? What could you have done? I do not understand. You yelled at her when she shit on herself, okay?’
Still wallowing in guilt, Angel said, “I feel so guilty. Maybe because I’m older and more aware now, so I just ask myself, ‘Why did you do that?’ “Why did you lash out like that?”
“I know you want to make amends, but because she’s dead now, you feel guilty. You really have to forgive yourself and I don’t think you can do it alone because this isn’t something that happened in a silo and it’s okay to feel that way,” Arin said.
Arin then recounted everything Angel had told her, stating that Angel had experienced problems that people twice her age have not experienced.
Arin said, “Your mother tried to abort you, but then she had you. Then you took care of your great-grandmother when she was demented, you were depressed, you were suicidal, your first and only boyfriend died.”
Angel said she’s been fighting all her life, but Arin assured her that one day her life’s troubles can be used as a movie, and encouraged Angel that she’s one of the strongest individuals she (Arin) has met.
