Zaira Wasim lashes out at trolls: Not everyone can withstand harsh criticism

Zaira Wasim wrote a heartwarming letter to trolls asking them for empathy. She also stressed that people can be traumatised for life by a mere giggle.

zaira Wasim bid goodbye to acting with the release of her film, The Sky is Pink, which hit the theatres in 2019. On Saturday (May 2), she took to Instagram to write a long post on how trolls can affect people and traumatise them for the rest of their lives. She also stressed on the importance of empathy.

The actress wrote that a joke, meme or a random comment can leave a lasting impact on one’s self-esteem. She added, “Imagine somebody out there genuinely believes he’s a loser just because of you, because of a joke, a meme, a comment you made just to look cool or funny in-front of your followers, but not everyone’s born with thick skin, not everyone can withstand the harsh criticism. (sic).”

Stating that people are not born with thick skin, she posted, “Some are more vulnerable that others and become easily overwhelmed and disappointed in themselves, your words could be a reason for someone’s heart to shatter, for someone to cry all night long.(sic).”

Zaira Wasim asked everyone to show empathy to people. “We all err, we’re all trying to figure out life, but instead of pouncing on someone’s flawed understanding for a mere giggle, try to make them aware about their flawed understanding not by mocking them, but with empathy, favour privacy and advise them. A little introspection into someone’s behaviour can reveal how they’re just staggering along to decide things on a basis of no knowledge.(sic).”

The Dangal actor concluded saying that a change in one’s behaviour could improve one’s quality of life. “While we’re all in this trial of life let’s rectify the errors of one another with love and empathy, the empathy we speak endlessly of but refuse to act upon when it’s required (sic),” she remarked.

Zaira made her debut in Dangal in 2016 and went on to act in Secret Superstar and The Sky is Pink, before quitting films in 2019.
