And it seems like Will Smith’s younger daughter, Willow Smith, understands this well.

This coming from a person who would form a band called The Anxiety with Tyler Cole back in 2019 shall not be a surprise. Well, turning difficult emotions into art and then laughing at them or embracing them perhaps runs in the blood. So comes our first meme through which she would suggest her fans stop (over)thinking in order to be truly happy.

In yet another story, she would then show a way to cut down the ever-emerging thoughts. By sharing a post from monk/teacher, Cory Muscara, she invites her fans to delve deeper into the practices of meditation and surrender themselves to the path of wisdom.

Willow Smith would then go on to share another meme suggesting that she is just done with it; Done with the “being born” perhaps and “the existential trauma of being alive in general,” on which she has also created an entire album, ‘Coping Mechanism.’

Lastly, the 22-year-old would urge her fans to embrace the harsh truths rather than the toxic positivity.

Notably, Willow Smith has been open about such vulnerabilities all her life. For instance, in her January 2023 interview with Vanity Fair, she talked about it at length.

Furthermore, speaking of vulnerability, she said it is “one of the first steps to opening your heart to people and letting them know that they can be vulnerable too. Because being vulnerable is power, I think.” And now, through memes and art, Smith is perhaps contributing to letting people know they are not alone.
