Samantha says taking break from work was the ‘hardest’ but best decision of her life

Samantha Ruth Prabhu is battling myositis, a condition that makes your immune system attack your muscles. She took a break from acting for her recovery. The actress has been quite open about her battle with the disease. In a new interview with Femina India, she opened up revealing that taking a break from work to recover from myositis was the “hardest decision” of her life. But in hindsight, she feels it was also the best one. “I’ve had my fair share of self-loathing and really low confidence, but I’ve always strived to grow as a person. With that growth came a deeper understanding of my insecurities. I was able to heal by addressing them – not by trying to fix them from the outside, but by fixing the inner trauma that needed more healing than any external quick fix,” she shared, adding that these lows have made her a better person.
