Such a shame that it took something like this to make her want to get in touch with herself, but hey!
Better late than never!
As we've reported, Kristen Stewart is having an extremely difficult time coming to terms with her relationship-ending choice to cheat on Robert Pattinson with her director in Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders, but is slowly making progress toward forgiving herself and moving on…thanks to the writings of Mahatma Ghandi…whom she discovered through the Julia Roberts flick Eat, Pray, Love!
A source explains:
"Kristen is trying to find some inner peace within herself. And she is reading a lot. She has always been interested in philosophy and spirituality and she has been reading a lot of different books. Strangely enough, the one author that has really been resonating with her is Gandhi, who she decided to find out more about after watching 'Eat, Pray Love'. She began reading a biography of his life, then turned to Gandhi's own writing because she was seeking solace. The quote that particularly stands out for her is, 'The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.' While she doesn't know if Rob could forgive her, that statement has tempered her own regret. The remorse she has isn't completely gone, but Gandhi's words have certainly helped her find peace with the whole situation. Kristen isn't beating herself up over it, she's accepted that everyone makes mistakes and she has to learn from it."
And at this point, with the damage that's already been done, that's the best can she do!
She can't control anyone else or their feelings, so we're happy to hear that she's using her clear error in judgment as a platform to learn from it, and grow personally and spiritually!
Hang in there, gurl!
Whether it's together or separately, you and Rob will both find peace eventually!
Respect the process!
