Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has taken to her social media handle to reveal the reason why she does not respond to a lot of things said on the internet about her.
According to the mother of one, via her Instagram, there’s power in silence as these things are better ignored than engaged. The actress also urged fans not to give people the power to bait them into an expected reaction.
Read her post below;
”A lot of times, we don’t talk about how powerful and wholesome silence can be, and I think that’s because society has made us believe that having the last word is a kind of winning. See, most times, I do not respond to many things not because I do not see them but because I believe they are better ignored than engaged. Honestly, my darlings, it is not everything that screams at us that deserves our responses. Knowing when to ignore a thing is also as important as knowing when to speak up. Don’t give people the power to bait you into an expected reaction. Do not give them the power to control your reaction. That right is yours; protect it. Be intentional about choosing what it is that you make your business and give your energy to! Learn to ignore, especially when you are most tempted to respond. As Yorùbás would say, “àìní àmójúkúrò, ló ń jẹ́ kí ẹrù u wèrè é pọ̀.”She said
