Amanda took to Instagram to share her thoughts after she received a DM from a critic asking her not to dance after her mother-in-law Lesley Cordero died.
She detailed how attending the dance class helped her deal with her grief even though she had almost chickened out of going.
She also told her followers not to let others determine how they handled events in their lives, encouraging them to know themselves.
One person wrote in the comments that people needed to stop acting like everybody dealt with grief the same way.
Another said there was no right or wrong way to grieve and Olivia Munn cheered Amanda on for her openness.
Meanwhile, one person called Amanda out on her knowledge of knowing the dance when she is a first timer.
Amanda announced Lesley’s death in a social media post with multiple pictures of the deceased.
She appreciated the matriarch for being a significant part of her life.
The actress previously told followers that she was not scared to take one step forward and two steps back in her grieving process.
