Dear Brother Jaden Smith,
I can understand and relate to your self-disappointment. Embarrassingly, I failed my driving exam the first time around. To begin the test, we first
had to maneuver through a configuration of cones, then reverse through the same maneuvering. For some reason, when the instructor told me to not make
any "stops" during the maneuvering, I foolishly thought he meant that I was not allowed to use the breaks at all. I went through fine, but on
reversing, I flew through too quickly and knocked over a cone. I went home, embarrassed with my failure, and faced the mocking and ridicule of my
family and friends. I learned what I did wrong, and passed the second time when I knew I could slow down with the break pedal hahaha! Don't let one
failure knock you down! You will pass on another attempt, and your self-disappointment will be a forgotten figment of your past.
Brother, you are letting your sorrow cloud your mind. Do you realize that you just publicly decried your father with a forgetfulness of appreciation?
You were expressing your frustrations that "literally nobody" is supporting your creative endeavors or the creative endeavors of the youth.
When I was growing up, I honestly scheduled many of my days just right, so that I could watch your father on television. To talk about the new episode
of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" at school was a significant part of our childhood culture. Those shows really meant something to me and all of
my school friends. Will Smith became my favorite actor because he was able to showcase relevant issues with a youthful urban humor in a setting that
contrasted privileged society. It was truly groundbreaking at the time. Will is also able to successfully and believably act in a full-spectrum of
emotion. He can literally take on any theme, any mood, and any emotion. I am very happy for his success, and I am grateful that he gave me so many
laughs and smiles growing up.
Brother Jaden, take some deep healing breaths and clear your mind of your sorrows. You will clearly see that you are a truly fortunate person to have
grown up under the wealth, luxury, fame, and connections of your father. He has been the reason that you get to enjoy the experiences and
opportunities of your life. Even if he does not put his full-backing behind 100% of your endeavors, you are still a heck of a lot more supported than
any of us common poor people.
For the sake of your father's heart and the fruits of his labors that pad the foundation of your upbringing, I feel that you owe him a sincere and
I am not here to judge you, I am just trying to empathize with what I would do.
May Peace be with you. It will get better.
