Everyone knows Jada Pinkett Smith is good for a sermon, and today is no different.
On Instagram the actress gave a good word on heartbreak and how it shapes our expectations around love. Pinkett revealed that her first heartbreak was caused by her father at the age of 7-years-old, but as time went on she realized that it was not her father or other people who were breaking her heart, it was her false beliefs around love.
“For me my first heartbreak was from my father at 7-years old, and then many people and circumstances on top of that disappointed me and broke my heart. And it wasn’t until I developed a really strong relationship with a higher power that my brokenness and my heartbreak could be healed. But it also made me realize that people don’t break my heart. It’s my false beliefs around love and my unrealistic expectations of people that break my heart.”
The 46-year-old credits that strong relationship with a higher power with putting her on a beautiful path, one that undoubtedly led her to find love with her husband and actor Will Smith for the last 21 years. Pinkett ended her message by challenging followers to think back to their first heartbreak and how it shaped their lives.
