Sonali Bendre, who has been diagnosed with a rare cancer, has opened up about the ordeals that she has undergone while being treated for the disease. The actor has undergone many painful chemotherapy sessions.  She has expressed her fears and agony in her recent Instagram post.

In her post, Bendre quoted Cheryl Strayed from Wild and speaks about the 'bad days'. Bendre muses that how it is important to remember the bad days post chemo sessions and it is not important to be cheerful all the time. 

Despite such a painful and overwhelming journey, Sonali leaves an inspirational message for all of us. 

She tells us how important it is to feel all the emotions of life, and never let us betray ourselves by turning hypocrites and smile through hardships even if we don't want to.

Her post on Instagram renders a message to her followers to cry and feel the pain for a while but only loving and caring ourselves can heal us towards the end.

"I allowed myself to cry, to feel the pain, to indulge in self-pity… for a short while. Only you know what you’re going through and it is fine to accept it. Emotions aren’t wrong. Feeling negative emotions isn’t wrong. But after a point, identify it, recognize it and refuse to let it control your life," posted Sonali on Instagram."

She further said, "It takes an immense amount of self-care to get out of that zone. Sleep always helps, or having my favourite smoothie after chemo, or just talking to my son."

Bendre got diagnosed in the month of July 2018 and announced that she would be going to the US for treatment. 

The actress recently met up with Rishi Kapoor and his wife Neetu in the US. Rishi Kapoor is in the US for medical treatment.
