Jada Pinkett Smith joined the ranks of annoying wives and mothers by posting a vague, everyone must live their own truth/in the light/paying it forward etc statement as her Facebook status.
But because she is a celebrity, people are brushing off their translating skills and acting like they’ve found The Rosetta Stone.
For those interested, it read:
I am on a tremendous journey of great change in every area of my life and I see how change can be scary. For instance, how Will and I raise our family is a tremendous change from the norm. It can be scary for some folks but it should never THREATEN how anyone else chooses to raise their own children or how they choose to live their lives.
We all have the freedom to CHOOSE to live how we want. The freedom of choice is the crux of happiness. We are not here to live up to another’s approval. Take responsibility for YOUR life, YOUR values, YOUR beliefs and expect NO ONE to hold that banner for you or to prove it RIGHT. When we do THAT…what someone else is doing won’t matter so much. Remember…one day you will die. Don’t waste a moment simply fearing to live because of what someone may think about it.
Is this about Divorce? Violation of Child Labor Laws? Or my favorite shot in the dark, Scientology?
The late Isaac Hayes was one of the few openly black celebrity Scientologists. But rumors about Will, Jada and Oprah Winfrey have long circulated.
If you have found your way here from Clearwater, Florida, welcome and please weigh in. Some suppressive persons are quite nice!
