Jada Pinkett Smith On The Journey To Self-Love

"The journey to self-love can be a brutal process. Especially in those moments when we must deny ourselves that which is familiar…but harmful. Like releasing victimhood and embracing personal power. Without personal power/self-love, there is no foundation to build love for someone else because it’s the power needed to dissolve the ego which is our greatest obstacle to truly loving through its brutal and unkind nature." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"I think the moment that I felt super clear about my self-worth and felt, like, golden worthiness was when I woke up on the morning of my 50th birthday, and looked at myself in the mirror, with my bald head and all, and I was just so proud of myself. I was like, 'You did it. Look how far you’ve come.'" - Jada Pinkett Smith

"I’ve always believed a woman’s superpower is how deep she can love, you know? And one of the things growing up in Baltimore, I grew up around a lot of Black women that didn’t have, necessarily, resources to give, right? But they had their strength and they had their love to offer." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"We have to be willing to constantly evaluate and evolve ourselves if we want to grow." - Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith On Taking Care Of Yourself First

"You always have to remember to take care of yourself first and foremost, because when you stop taking care of yourself you get out of balance and you really forget how to take care of others." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Do whatever rejuvenates you. It might be a cooking class, cocktails with the girls, or just private time with the hubby. We all have our moments where we run out of steam because we’ve given everything we’ve got to everyone else. Whoever decided that was a good thing? It’s not. Everyone needs to refuel." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Sometimes our biggest treasures and our biggest lessons are in the zones of discomfort." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"I have a thing for doors. I always think of them as a threshold to something new." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"I think I’m still learning how to get out of survival mode. It still pops up here and there, and I think I just have more awareness around it. I might not live in it as much, but it’s still very much a part of me. It’s part of my foundation. It’s something I’ve learned to manage and be aware of." - Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith On The Shame We Carry

"There’s a lot of shame we carry in our skin but a lot of healing can come from us confronting our bodies and scraping off the shame." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Vulnerability is the key to connecting with others on a deeper level." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"When you've walked through the darkness of your own heart and mind ... there is no shadow you fear." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"When I’m tired, I rest. I say, ‘I can’t be a superwoman today.’" - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Love is what sometimes holds us and binds us when we’re not so happy." - Jada Pinkett Smith quotes

Jada Pinkett Smith On Happiness

"That to me is happiness when I feel like I am loved and I have a place to love deeply. That to me is happiness." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Lack of confidence is what makes you want to change somebody else’s mind. When you’re okay, you don’t need to convince anyone else in order to empower yourself." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"I want to tell every mother that you can have a loving family and you can have your dreams, you can. We might not have everything that we thought we’d have but we can have that love and we can have ourselves." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"I really thought happiness had a lot to do with pleasure, and I realized that happiness is about peace." - Jada Pinkett Smith Quotes

"Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? Because I bet that if you love it authentically, everybody else around you will. They won’t even have a chance to see anything else, because you will have a shield of confidence around you. That is a powerful gift that God gives us that most of us rarely use." - Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith On Not Being Liked

"I don’t get afraid in talking about subject matter that may spark controversy and I’m not afraid to not be liked. I think that sometimes people pay too much attention to being liked and it’s paralyzing." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Don’t trap yourself with the desire of wanting to be liked." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"Forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves; it releases us from the burden of anger and resentment." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"True success is not just about achieving external goals; it's about finding inner peace and fulfillment." - Jada Pinkett Smith

"What I find helpful is exploring my memories and feelings with pen and paper. If you find some quiet time today, take an opportunity to write three beautiful memories from your childhood, or simply from your past, that helped you to nourish the beautiful YOU that you are." - Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith On Romance & True Unconditional Love

"Romance cannot be sustained alone. Romance is going to have to have some other verticals, what I call verticals of love, to come into that, in order to elevate romance to other levels. Everybody thinks that romance is the highest form of love — romance is a beautiful form of love, but romance has to elevate. When you take romance as the highest form of love, it’s a cycle of disappointment.

"...Two people who are chasing this high form, this romantic, idealistic picture that doesn’t exist, and so it was really about a journey coming to terms with what unconditional love, love full of friendship and acceptance, looks like, and you could add romance to that, but romance to exist alone? I think that’s why relationships are in a difficult place right now, and the expectations people have in regard to relationships. You have to have friendship. I think that’s one of the biggest reasons why Will and I have been able to survive everything we’ve had, because at the core of it, we’re friends." - Jada Pinkett Smith
