Willow Smith took years to forgiver her father Will

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Willow Smith, daughter of actors and Smith, says it took her years to forgive her father for how he handled her fame in music career.

In an episode of Watch's "Red Table Talk", the 18-year-old Willow, who released her debut single "my hair" in 2010, said: "I definitely had to forgive you and daddy for that whole 'my hair thing'. It was mostly Daddy because he was so, like, harsh at certain times.

"It was like a couple years, trying to regain trust for trying for not feeling like I wasn't listened to or no one cared what I felt during that time."

While she learned to forgive her parents, Willow added she also had to learn to forgive herself, reported people.com.

"And I had to forgive myself because I felt guilty because everyone is trying to make me better, trying to make my dream. But I didn't really understand what my dream entailed."

Earlier this year, Willow also admitted that she had cut herself during her song's success as a way to cope with the pressures of fame.

"It was after that whole 'my hair' thing and I had just stopped doing lessons and I was kind of just in this gray area of, I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything I can do besides this?" Willow wrote.
