Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has finally forgiven her Ex- Husband Olakunle Churchill for the sake of their son king Andre.
She disclosed this during an interview with journalist, Dele Momodu on the importance of forgiveness, adding that forgiveness is not about the next person but oneself.
When she was asked about forgiveness, she said;
“A man I love and respect always, talked to me about forgiveness and I have come to realise that forgiveness is not about the next person.
I know that forgiveness is not about the next person but the explanation I got recently really wowed me.
It says I have forgiven you not because you have to be forgiven, I have forgiven you because I don’t want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to growth, I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to love, I do not want to put myself in warship, progressing in my career.
Forgiveness is a whole lot and I only just realised that the bible says that if we do not forgive, God cannot forgive us too. All these things are in the bible but it didn’t really made an impact to me until someone really explained it.
So today I would tell you that for me it comes really easy. I forgive a lot but I don’t like to get provoked by things that you do after it. I think forgiveness is essential for ones growth”.
