7 Tips On How To Forgive Someone Who Hurt You

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you’ll know that there was a big controversy involving Zendaya and Giuliana Rancic. And by controversy, I mean that Rancic made some horrible, racist, and stereotypical comments on Fashion Police about Zendaya’s dreadlocks at the Oscars. Those dreadlocks, by the way, looked freaking amazing. To be specific, Rancic said, “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed.”

In response, Zendaya crafted an amazing response calling Rancic out for her offensive comments. It was really upsetting that Rancic said something that perpetuated an idea that there is something wrong about black hair. Believing those myths about black hair is beyond terrible and needs to stop, but Zendaya did a great job in schooling Rancic and anyone else who thinks that way.

Rancic tweeted an apology and then apologized on E! News, to which Zendaya responded:

Wowowowow. THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how you be a wonderful human. I don’t think I ever would have been able to respond to a situation like this with so much grace. Zendaya just taught all of us how to handle a terrible situation that makes you angry and how to forgive someone at the same time. Forgiveness isn’t easy, but here are some tips to help you forgive someone who has wronged you:

    Hey! I just want to say that i have been in SO MANY situations like her’s. I have been hurt i dont no how many times now but i just want to say if someone has hurt you and your angry talk to someone about it instead of hurting them back because that will only start a fight. If you can’t talk to anyone about it start a diary or journal. Or you could think about the hurtful comment that has been said to you and take that feeling and turn it into something else! Lots of love unknownlifegirl 🙂 xxx
