KUALA LUMPUR: Actress and TV host Datin Diana Danielle may despise toxic people but at the end of the day, she always chooses to forgive.
In an Instagram post which accompanied a recent photo of the Hanyut star dressed in a Perak Malay outfit, Diana said that no matter how mean a person was, she did not believe in harbouring hatred towards him or her.
"God knows no matter how mean, horrible and heartless a person may be to me, in the end I will always be soft-hearted and forgive him or her.
"Anger and hate are too heavy for my happy heart. I always seek to find inner peace and live without regrets.
"I don’t want to say I didn't try my best, because living with hatred is horrible.
"It hurts to do something and it hurts to do nothing, but to regret is even worse.
"So I choose what my heart tells me even if people think it is wrong.
"My heart always says you can, so why don't you? And I will!" said Diana.
Netizens praised Diana for her wise decision, and hailed her as a compassionate and spiritual person.
"Well said Datin Diana. Thank you for pouring out these words of motivation. I'm one of those who went through hell but I've chosen to take the higher road," said Mawar.
"You've got a good heart Diana. Best wishes to you and family. Take care," said BB.
"Lovely outfit, and wise words. Love you always, Datin," said Riana.
Diana, 29, is married to actor-director Datuk Farid Kamil and they have two children, Muhammad, 7, and Aurora, 5.
She has appeared in more than a dozen films and drama series since 2001, and won Best Supporting Actress in the 29th Malaysian Film Festival and Anugerah Skrin 2017 for Hanyut.
