The actress made this known during an Instagram live chat with veteran journalist Dele Momodu on Sunday, while speaking on the importance of forgiveness.
According to her, she has come to realize that forgiveness is not about the next person but about oneself, hence, she forgave him for her personal growth.
“A man I love and respect always, talked to me about forgiveness and I have come to realize that forgiveness is not about the next person,” she said.
“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 do not 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 a place of warship, progressing, my career.
“Forgiveness is a whole lot and I only just realized that the bible says that if we do not forgive, God cannot forgive us. All these things are in the bible but it never really made an impact on me until someone really explained it.”
