They say as you get older you get wiser, and it looks like Jada Pinkett Smith is doing just that! On Wednesday (September 25), the wife of Will Smith took to her personal page to look back at what she has learned about herself over the years.

"Yesterday I turned one year older, and I reflected on where I have been and where I am now. 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 dealing with problems in life. 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."

Also on her page, was "a letter to a dear friend" where she opened up about her take on the struggles of marriage and contemplating divorce. "For the past five years, I have been meeting with elders who have been married 25+ years to get understanding from many perspectives as to what marriage and love is all about."

Smith continued in her post: "Almost all the couples have said that at some point in their marriage they have stumbled upon inevitably difficult moments that called for a break … My hope for you is this, that you consider taking the route that some of our elders have taken in giving your marriage some space and time before the drastic decision of divorce. Answers to big questions need time to find lasting truth vs the truth of the moment. After this process the answer may be the same … but you may also find that spark that could save and rekindle your marriage."
