Tiffany Haddish is living the words in the Bible and learning to forgive her mother, who when she was a little girl physically and verbally abused her.
The actress and comedian recently sat down with Hollywood Unlocked, where she discussed how she got to a place of true forgiveness.
“It was a long road, and I’m still working on it. Everyday I’m working on it. But, I have to put myself in her shoes. What tools did she have to be the best? Not a lot.”
“Also, you got to look at it like ‘What if the tables are turned?’ What if I have children or adopt children and something happens to me and I end up not being the best that I could possibly be. Do I want them to sh*t on me for the rest of my life that I’m here on this earth or do I want them to try their best to treat me as well as they possibly can? And I just feel like do unto others as you want them to do unto you. That’s the golden rule in every religion, every Bible, every manner book, treat people the way you want to be treated.”
The comedian also talked being Jewish, and says a lot of her giving back ethic and kind-heartedness comes from learning about the Jewish community and how they always take care of their people.
“God is so Good. Thank you for everything Lord Your protection is always needed and Appreciated. Amen”
