Her 'biggest wound' in her relationships is not being protected by her partner 

Jada Pinkett Smith discusses a common thread in her relationships. 

Pinkett Smith and her co-hosts Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris discuss mother-daughter dynamics on Wednesday's Red Table Talk .  

In this clip, Pinkett Smith reveals that the "biggest wound" in her personal relationships is a lack of protection 

which she says is the "biggest wound" that comes out most in her personal relationships.

In all of her relationships, Pinkett Smith says, "My biggest wound was not having protection." 

She continues, "I have looked for the craziest kind of protection, and I don't even know what's safe."

Adding, "I'm either extremely protective or extremely defensive."

When Banfield-Norris was in middle school, her mother died, who was a figure of safety and security for Pinkett Smith.
