I've stopped trying to make anyone happy - Will Smith

Smith who recently had a chat with Complex alongside his fellow ‘Bad Boys: Ride Or Die’ star, Martin Lawrence, said the best practice is for each person to discover their own happiness.

He said; “The GOAT relationship advice for me is that it’s impossible to make a person happy. Don’t even play the game. And don’t try to have a person make you happy.

“You’ve to discover your happiness and cultivate your happiness on your own, and they have to cultivate theirs on their own. And you come together sharing the happiness you have versus trying to get happiness from them.

“That was a big one for me. The retirement from trying to make people happy, and all my relationships got better.”
