Actress Kristen Stewart is reportedly struggling to forgive herself after cheating beau Robert Pattinson and has turned to the writings of Mahatma Gandhi to cope with it.
Stewart had a brief fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders while she was in relationship with Pattinson.
And the actress has now turned to self-help and enlightenment books to cope with the cheating scandal.
"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," radaronline.com quoted a source as saying.
Kristen Stewart had a brief fling with director Rupert Sanders.
"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 source said.
"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," the source added
