I have already lost touch with a couple of people I used to be ~ Joan Dideon . . . . . I have! With the pushover, the timid one, side, the diplomat, the people pleaser, the blamer, the procrastinator… am honest, free, light right now… happiness is something that should make you liver smile … read that somewhere. Let go of versions of you , that no longer serve you… some toxic ones will also drop to the wayside, like flies. But evolution. That’s the only thing… for now… no? . . 💄 @tanujadabirmakeup .

As per reports, Richa’s lawyer Nitin Satpure said that the actress will also withdraw her previous statement about Richa Chadha to settle the matter.
