Sushmita Sen On Unhealthy Relationships

Sen recently posted a note on Instagram where she talked about toxic relationship patterns on social media. On March 30, she shared a quote attributed to Vienna Pharaon.

“When there is something we haven’t healed in our lives, we can often find ourselves either being drawn into relationships that recreate the pain and wounding or relationships that never touch the pain and wounding,” the note read, “We take a path of repetition (opportunity for re-enactment) or a path of opposition (opportunity to never be hurt that way again).”

She stated that we unconsciously get trapped in the patterns, which can be broken since we all possess the “power to heal ourselves”, drawing from her own experience of unhealthy relationships.
