Although there have been several rumors concerning the superstar couple’s marriage – No, Will and Jada are not getting divorced. However, on her Facebook page, Jada Pinkett Smith has recently shared some divorce advice, likely aimed at a recently divorced friend that could be helpful to many women going through divorce here in Georgia. Jada’s complete post can be viewed here, but you can find highlights of it quoted below:
“You are divorced. Your ex-husband is not being kind or considerate, but you can’t harp on it because it steals the energy that should be given to your potential and power. At the end of the day, your survival is at risk, and you complaining about what he is not doing and what he should be doing does not change your circumstances. …
In the ideal world, the circumstances in which you and your children are facing are unacceptable, but the most painful realization I have had about this life is that we are not entitled to anyone’s kindness or consideration. THAT, is a painful truth. Stay focused and keep it moving.”
Although divorce doesn’t have to be a nasty ordeal, it often is. If you are currently experiencing the quagmire that is divorce, you have likely already discovered that the spouse who once professed their love for you, now seems to care very little about your well-being, emotionally or otherwise. You can’t control their actions or feelings, but what you can do is control how you respond. “Stay focused and keep it moving.” You deserve to be happy; don’t let your spouse’s actions rob you of that.
