Veteran Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham has revealed the main reason why she has stopped responding to a lot of things on and off social media.
Top personalities in the entertainment industry have become a victim of trolling on and off social media in the past few days and this looks like a trend that will continue.
Though some top personalities have been consistent in replying to trolls on their timeline, Toyin Abraham has been turning deaf ears to their post.
The beautiful screen diva in a new post on her official Instagram account has now revealed why she has been doing so.
According to the star actress, some things are better ignored as not everything deserves a response.
She wrote on her timeline:
A lot of times, we don’t talk about how powerful and wholesome silence can be and I think that’s because the society has made us believe that having the last word is a kind of winning.
See, most times, I do not respond to a lot of 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 expected reaction. Do not give them 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.
