“Vanity is my favourite sin.” – Al Pacino Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony ????), but who doesn’t like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us… A little vanity here and there does no one any harm. It’s important to do what makes you happy, even if it’s something as simple as wearing a wig, bright red lipstick, high heels…. All that white noise doesn’t make a difference in the larger picture. No one can tell you what’s right or wrong for you. When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt… “Am I vain for wanting to look good?” As part of the entertainment industry, you’re always expected to look good… Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I’m in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will. Only you know what would make you feel good, and what works best for you. So take every opportunity you can to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #OneDayAtATime ???????? Thank you @priyankachopra for connecting me with the amazing @bokheehair, who created my new look.

She has told the people in social media to ‘switch on the sunshine’ and face the problem by being brave.

Bollywood actors like Priyanka Chopra, Neetu Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Sussanne Khan have been visiting Sonali. They have helped her loosen up and relax.

Namrata Shirodkar remarked “She looks amazingly fit and ready to get back to normal life. I had such a lovely time with her. We discussed so many things.”

In an interaction with Deccan Chronicle, Namrata said that Sonali told her the entire story of her illness. She talked about things that gave her strength and Namrata told her that she would always be in her prayers.

Namrata gave an insight about the conversations that both of them had. She said “Just like me, she’s so typically Maharashtrian in so many ways. We chatted about everything under the sun. We even laughed about some shared recollections of the past.”

Since her treatment is happening in New York, Sonali in the past weekend also attended Priyanka Chopra’s bridal shower. It was held at New York’s Tiffany & Co Blue Box Cafe. Neetu Singh, wife of Rishi Kapoor was also in the pictures.

During July this year, Sonali had revealed that she has indeed been diagnosed with cancer and she would be undergoing her treatment in New York.

In October she shared a bald picture of hers with caption “there have been days when I’ve been so exhausted and in so much pain that even lifting a finger hurt”. She keeps updating her fans about the struggles that she had endured.

“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. Over the past couple of months, I have had good days and bad ones. There have been days when I’ve been so exhausted and in so much pain that even lifting a finger hurt. I feel like sometimes it’s 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. Sometimes it felt like it took everything I’ve 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. It’s important to remember that we’re 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 you’re going through and it is fine to accept it. Emotions aren’t wrong. Feeling negative emotions isn’t wrong. But after a point, identify it, recognize it and refuse to let it control your life. 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. It’s yet another test… Student all my life… Learning all my life… #OneDayAtATime ????: @srishtibehlarya
