On the event of Global Forgiveness Day on Wednesday, a number of artistes of the Indian tv fraternity shared their perspective in regards to the worth of forgiveness and the way vital it’s to not solely forgive others however ourselves, too.
For Gracy Singh, who’s seen in “Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayen”, forgiveness is vital as a result of unsolved anger impacts psychological wellness.
“Forgiveness is an important virtue that helps us in all walks of life. Being angry at someone affects us more than it does the other person. Unsolved anger affects mental wellness as it often leads to unmanaged stress and other serious health issues. On this day, take a long breath and exhale all the negativity while stepping towards the joy of forgiving,” stated Gracy.
Actor Samir Soni stated: “I believe in ‘forgive and forget’. The more you hold grudges, the more you harm yourself and not the person who might have wronged you. It reminds me of famous American Novelist Anne Lamott, who once said, ‘Not forgiving is like drinking rat poison and then waiting for the rat to die’.”
For Nikhil Bhambri, forgiveness is critical to keep one’s sanctity of thoughts.
“I believe forgiveness is important to maintain the sanctity of mind as well as peace of mind. I would like to share a memory from my childhood. Once my best friend in school did something that upset me but it was only recently that I realised that my resentment was futile. It was last year when we bonded again. Today we are there for each other through thick and thin. I only wish I had forgiven him sooner. So, if there is someone you can forgive, do it today,” the actor stated.
Actor Rohitashv Gour of “Bhabi ji Ghar Par Hai!” stated: “During these unprecedented times, the only way where one can find peace is by living in the moment and liberating ourselves from anger and practising forgiveness as a way of life. Forgiveness works like magic. The person who receives it feels a burden has been lifted and the person who forgives finds peace.”
“Another important aspect is learning to forgive yourself, as it is an important step towards self-love. We must accept that nobody is perfect and mistakes can only make you better. Make compassion a part of your life and see your life take a positive route,” Gaur added.
