Over the years, Willow Smith has been very vocal about her life struggles.

In an Instagram post shared on July 27, Smith continued to showcase a vulnerable side as she opened up about the thought of where her values lie as a human being.
While sharing a clip of herself rocking a red bikini, Smith wrote, “just a little reminder that our value as humans doesn’t lye in our external abilities or productivity. our value is innate, equal and, bestowed upon us by <The Divine>.”
The 21-year-old added, “I’ve been struggling with this recently & It truly breaks my heart when I allow myself to stray from that mental and emotional path. just know you are loved, naturally significant and, valuable no matter what the world or your insecurities have made you believe.”
