‘Sometimes we take the nicest people for granted’: Hania Aamir reflects on valuing people in life
Actor Hania Aamir has recently returned to Instagram after disappearing for a while and this time she has a message for everyone — appreciate the people around you.
Being vocal about personal battles and cyber bullying, the actor had been on a hiatus for the sake of her mental well-being. Aamir was also harassed online and still is to this day.
“There are so many distractions around us, so much noise. It makes us lose sight of the things and people we should be thankful for,” wrote Aamir in a recent Instagram post. “We run after the people who have hurt us and cry for the people who have betrayed us, forgetting to be there for the ones who were our anchor when we had lost control.”
“Sometimes we take the nicest people for granted just because they are available at any time without any questions. Appreciate the people who bring you joy, the kind souls who just want what’s good for you. Appreciate the ones who give without expecting anything in return, the ones who you can sit in silence with, have a conversation at any time of the night with, the ones you never ask how they are doing and they never bring it up either.”
Aamir concluded her post with the insight that while someone’s efforts might seem insignificant because they probably weren’t the reason for some big event in your life, they are the ones who keep you going and you need to appreciate such people and give back to them.
Isn’t that something we all need to do? Just sit back and self-reflect in order to survive the negativity on social media these days?
Previously, the Ishqiya star opened up about her social media hiatus during a Q&A session on Instagram and said, "I've picked enough battles here. Voicing your opinions comes at a price and the price is your mental health. The gossip, the mean comments and the 'putting each other down' on the internet had started getting to me. And honestly I lost faith in humanity so I need a break. I don't feel like putting my life out there anymore.”
A few days ago the actor announced a new project titled Parde Mein Rehne Do alongside Ali Rehman Khan, Noor ul Hasan, Javed Sheikh, Sadia Faisal and Munazza Arif.
