For many adoring fans, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are a true example of #RelationshipGoals. But now Will Smith is garnering even more respect from fans for his inspirational social media posts. Over the weekend, Will Smith explained why he’s not responsible for his wife’s happiness. Although the two have been married for 20 years, Will has laid down the law where his wife’s happiness is concerned. The famed actor is making it clear, her happiness is not his responsibility. While some people may find this odd, Will actually offered a profound explanation for his statement. Wil

The Pursuit Of Happiness:

According to EURWeb, Will recently posted an interesting video on social media with some serious advice about relationships. The Pursuit of Happiness star revealed one of the biggest revelations he discovered about love was the fact that you can’t make someone happy. “You cannot make a person happy,” he began. “You can make a person smile, you can make a person feel good, you can make a person laugh but whether or not a person is happy deeply, totally and utterly out of your control.”

He believes it’s something you cannot do or control. He also admitted it’s important for a person to be fulfilled on their own outside of a relationship. “Whether or not a person is happy is deeply and totally and utterly out of your control. I remember the day I retired. I literally said to Jada: That’s it. I retire. I retire from trying to make you happy.

Separate Joy:

Will went on to reveal the moment he retired from making his wife happy and how their relationship evolved when they realized “becoming one” didn’t necessarily include being responsible for each other’s happiness. ““I remember the day I retired. I said to Jada, ‘I retire, I retire from trying to make you happy. I need you to go make yourself happy and just prove to me that it’s even possible.’ After we cracked the hell up, we started talking about it and we came into this false romantic concept that somehow when we got married, we would become one. We realized that we were two completely separate people on two completely separate, individual journeys and that we were choosing to walk separate journeys, together.”

He continued, “I remember the day I retired. I said to Jada, ‘I retire, I retire from trying to make you happy. I need you to go make yourself happy and just prove to me that it’s even possible.’ After we cracked the hell up, we started talking about it and we came into this false romantic concept that somehow when we got married, we would become one. We realized that we were two completely separate people on two completely separate, individual journeys and that we were choosing to walk separate journeys, together.”

Will’s latest profound statement follows a similar statement Jada made during a discussion back in 2012. She explained the importance of self-care and balancing your life. “When you stop taking care of yourself you get out of balance and you really forget how to take care of others.”
