Jada Pinkett Smith On Being Heartbroken: “Unrealistic Expectations”

Jada Pinkett Smith is a proponent of progressive views on relationships. She has shared some wisdom about female energy and divorce recently. Today, she offered her insights and experiences with heartbreak.

She filmed a testimony that deals with this common human experience.

“Every person we will ever meet is broken-hearted. And something happens early on when somebody breaks our confidence and love and kindness. And for me, my first heartbreak was from my father at 7 years old. And then many people and circumstances after that disappointed me and broke my heart. And it wasn’t until I developed a really strong relationship with my higher power that my brokenness and my heartbreak could be healed.”

She asks her audience to reflect on their first experience with heartbreak and “how it shaped your life.”

Often times we expect people we love to heal our broken hearts. When we realize our loved ones can’t heal our brokenness (for they are broken too) … we often feel deeply disappointed and/or have feelings of being betrayed even. We can also spend a lot of time punishing people and having deep resentment  towards our loved ones for not behaving in a certain manner that makes our wounded hearts feel good … all day, everyday. When I realized I’m the only one responsible for my pain, even if it’s someone else’s fault, I was really angry with the Higher Power because “I” felt entitled to everyone’s best behavior and love. When I finally found some humility and got over myself and surrendered to that Power that is far higher then “I” and do the work to be for myself what I was demanding everyone else to be FOR me … I was able to find the Kingdom within and every bit of love and healing I had been looking for all along.
