Angelica Lee comes clean on why she forgave cheating hubby

10 November 2014 / 1 year 11 months ago

Angelica Lee’s (李心潔) four-year marriage with Oxide Pang (彭順) was in danger of falling apart after the director was caught cheating with model Liddy Li (李悅彤). However, Angelica has forgiven Oxide and chose to pardon those who have hurt her.

According to an article in Jayne Stars, Angelica compared her life to acting and said: “In acting, you have to learn how to get out of character once you’re done [with the movie]. Life is just the same. You must learn how to let go. I started to meditate and study Buddhism six years ago. Buddhism teaches loves and wisdom, and it has allowed me to become a much calmer person. There are ups and downs in life. As long as you consider these setbacks as opportunities of learning, you will then know how to cherish every encounter."

Angelica said she is happy, fortunate, and satisfied with her life. She is not stubborn when it comes to relationships and she refuses to express love in rigid ways. “I want to use my heart to love everyone, to pardon everyone.” Did it hurt to have someone whom she loved to hurt her in such a manner? “You get hurt because you have demands. When you love someone, you shouldn’t have demands. If you don’t have demands, you won’t feel hurt. Be more broad-minded."

The award-winning actress said she is someone who can easily find exits in situations, and use her wisdom to try to understand the deeper issues. “I believe that everyone around me are my bodhisattva who are helping me with my moral teachings. They’re helping me become a better person. He [Oxide] has tested me and given me a chance to do my homework.”

Obstacles and setbacks will always come in life, but it takes fate to bring two people together.  “We should use love to grow, support each other, and share our joys and happiness.”
