In this clip, Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow, and mother, in all their beautiful realness, focus on the question – ‘How hard is it being a wife and mother?’
The ensuring answer applies not just to mothers, but also to women in the twenty-something stages and more. As women, we are often programmed to throw ourselves into something so hard, that we forget our own balance and mental states, be it relationships, careers, family life.
Jada’s truth challenges the voice of society and highlights balance as a path to happiness.

‘You always have to remember to take care of you first and foremost. When you stop taking care of yourself, you get out of balance and you really forget how to take care of others.
I have to be responsible for my own happiness because otherwise, I start making others responsible. You have a right to be happy, and your happiness fuels you from the inside.’
