She also explained that it’s nice to have goals, It isn’t necessary to put too much pressure on ourselves to be productive during the current situation.
Mansha Pasha also talked about how she was keeping her mental health in check and how she deals with existential dread.
Mansha stated that during these times the hardest part for her is to get to the bottom of her emotions and understand what she is feeling and why. Once understood, she stated that she’d talk to somebody because sharing helps and explained how always trying to be strong can be detrimental to one’s mental health.
While answering a question on dealing with existential dread, Mansha stated that it is important to remind ourselves that we are not in control and we should take things and decisions as they come.
Moving forward, Mansha also expressed what goes in her head when she calls somebody out on their irresponsible behavior and her love for dialogue.
She further stated that it is important to distinguish between constructive criticism and trolling whilst being a celebrity.
Whilst on the topic of trolling that celebrities face, Mansha said that it is imperative to understand the difference between constructive criticism and trolling, but at the same time, it is a hard thing to do, and comes over time. She said that it is up to the individual to put into consideration the validity of such comments.
The topic of conversation stirred towards a celebrity’s private life and the stigma around divorce.
Mansha stated that although she has become more open about her private life, there’s always a cautious movement regarding one’s privacy if life is complicated or certain issues involve the presence of other individuals.
Regarding her divorce, Mansha stated that it took her a long time to come to terms with what had happened and understand it. She had been quiet about her divorce on her social media but had her friends and colleagues informed. She also stated that it is a personal choice regarding where to draw the line between ‘public and private’ and it is an ongoing conversation with one’s self.
She also answered some interesting questions from her fans and stated how her life has changed.
While answering a question from her fan, she stated that her life has changed and this change has brought about a sense of responsibility with it. Seeing that an artist is known by the projects they are in, it is always about when to say yes to a project and knowing when to decline.
Talking about her struggles she said that the journey begins after the university and one needs to learn things all over again and also unlearn a lot of stuff. With her Bachelors in Media Science, she stated that life after university is a start from ground zero.
