Jada Pinkett Smith has turned her Facebook page into a philosophical open diary and as she celebrated her 42nd birthday last Wednesday she reflected on who she is and where she is now.
Yesterday she posted a lengthy Facebook status that revealed she fought several addictions when she was younger, but she failed to go into detail about what those addictions were.
She also claims that her problem with addiction stemmed from her inability to deal with the problems that life threw her way.
“What I learned about myself is this, when I was younger I was not a good problem solver, meaning I had a very difficult time with dealing with my problems in life,” she wrote. “I had many addictions, of several kinds, to deal with my life issues, but today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life’s inevitable obstacles.”
She said she is proud of herself for finally reaching a point where she can tackle life’s obstacles without struggling with addiction.
