Actor Sanjay Dutt's daughter Trishala, who often uses social media platforms to raise awareness about various issues, recently talked about how she deals with people judging her.
Trishala invited questions from her followers and during the Q & A session, someone asked her on Instagram, "How do you deal with so many people judging you constantly?"
Responding to the question, Trishala wrote, "I’ve had people judging me since the day I took my first breath. It comes with the family name unfortunately."
"When dealing with highly judgmental people, don’t take it personally," Trishala added.
She further wrote that when people feel upset or disconnected from the world, they project their unhappiness on the people they interact with. "They start judging the world around them. Haven’t you noticed? It’s only when we are unhappy with ourselves, and our lives, we begin to judge, blame and criticize those around us. Nobody does this when they’re happy," she wrote.
"Treat everyone with respect, love and compassion including those who judge and criticize you harshly, not necessarily because they deserve it, but because you do. Appreciate the contrast. Silenly thank them for the many lessons they are now teaching you and allow them to make you better, not bitter," she added.
Earlier, during an Ask Me Anything session on Instagram, Trishala had talked about being in a toxic relationship several years ago and being treated like trash.
Trishala is Sanjay Dutt's oldest child from his first wife Richa Sharma. Richa and actor Sanjay married in 1987 after meeting at the sets of a film.
A few years later, Richa was diagnosed with a terminal illness and she took her last breath on December 10, 1996.
