Human nature is one that helps people see the different characters of others and how they choose to react to it. Many times, people cannot take what they dish out but no man is an island and human relations are necessary for growth.
Just recently, top Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham, took to her social media page to speak on the importance of forgiveness.
The film star who has also joined the growing list of celebrities with YouTube channels shared a snippet from one of her new videos.
The mother of one decided to speak on forgiveness. According to her, people would hurt others on numerous occasions but they should learn to forgive because they are not witches or wizards.
Abraham also said that one can forgive and not be close to the person. She also encouraged her fans to pick their phones and call people they have grudges with to tell them that they have been forgiven.
The actress then said that she forgives a lot of times and that she does not hold grudges.
In the caption of the post, Abraham explained that going through life and expecting people not to hurt you is an illusion and that when one refuses to forgive, there would be no peace but more pain.
She also quoted a Yoruba proverb which means: “If one does not forget a matter that happened yesterday, there would be nobody to play with tomorrow”.
The actress used the adage to further emphasise the importance of forgiveness.
She wrote: "Going through life & expecting people not to hurt you, is nothing but an illusion. When you refuse to forgive, you do not have more peace, you have more pain. That is why tí a ò bá gbàgbé ọ̀rọ̀ àná, a ò lè r'ẹ́ni bá ṣeré."
