'The happiest women are the ones who made a choice to love themselves wholly and truly.'
Malaika Arora may be best known for her inspiring fitness videos and bold red carpet styles.
But the 46 year old actor model and mum recently shared an important message with her 10.9 million followers on Instagram.
According to Malaika, 'the happiest women today are not the married ones.'
'They're not the single ones,' said the actor who recently divorced from Arbaaz Khan after being married for 19 years.
'They're not the ones with stable careers and good incomes,' she added.
Sharing lessons from her own life and career, Malaika wrote about her idea of what makes women happy.
Here's what she shared in the post which has since been liked by over 4,28,000 people on social media:
'The happiest women are the ones who made a choice to love themselves wholly and truly.
'Women who chose to leave the past behind, worked on their self-esteem and put a high price tag on their self-esteem.
'They stopped playing victims.
'They stopped whining in self-pity and dining in pity parties.
'They moved past their anger, tears and bitterness.
'They realised that happiness is a personal choice and responsibility.
'They chose to be defined by their present, but not their pasts.
'They are happy because they don't need validation from anyone.
'They are happy because they know that they don't need to throw shade on anyone for them to shine.
'They are happy because they chose to be Queens.'
