    The way Sonali Bendre is fighting cancer is highly applaudable: Anupam Kher

Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre on Tuesday once again opened up about battling metastatic cancer and surviving the painful chemotherapy sessions.

Starting her post with a quote from Cheryl Strayed, the 43-year-old wrote, “I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me. – Cheryl Strayed, Wild.”

She continued, “Over the past couple of months, I have had good days and bad ones. There have been days when Ive been so exhausted and in so much pain that even lifting a finger hurt. I feel like sometimes its a cycle… one that starts off with physical pain and leads to mental and emotional pain. The bad days have been many… Post chemo, post-surgery and the like… where even just laughing hurts.”

With an attitude of a warrior, she added, “Sometimes it felt like it took everything Ive had to push past it… a minute to minute battle with myself. I got through it knowing that even though I was fighting a long drawn out, draining battle… it was one that was worth the fight.”

Emphasising on the importance of accepting ones emotions, the actor said that she allowed herself to cry and feel the pain. “Its important to remember that were allowed to have those bad days. Forcing yourself to be happy and cheerful all the time serves no purpose. Who are we being fake and putting on an act for? I allowed myself to cry, to feel the pain, to indulge in self-pity… for a short while. Only you know what youre going through and it is fine to accept it. Emotions arent wrong. Feeling negative emotions isnt wrong. But after a point, identify it, recognize it and refuse to let it control your life,” wrote Sonali.

Summing it up, she added, “It takes an immense amount of self-care to get out of that zone. Sleep always helps, or having my favourite smoothie after chemo, or just talking to my son. For now, as my treatment continues… my visual focus remains to just get better and get back home. Its yet another test…Student all my life…Learning all my life…#OneDayAtATime.”
