Actress and lifestyle influencer Smriti Khanna, an active vlogger, recently opened up about her personal journey in her latest vlog, sharing both the highs and lows. From revealing unsettling details about her first marriage to discussing toxic past relationships, Smriti emphasized the importance of achieving financial independence.
In her vlog, she stated, “The only thing in the world you can change is yourself. You cannot change anybody. So, don’t rely on anyone for your happiness. Through my experiences, I’ve learned a few things, especially for girls because I am a woman who has been through it all. Whether it’s a breakup or divorce, it’s usually the woman who moves out. Regardless of fault, she is the one making significant adjustments, leaving her home and changing her entire life, even her surname. I made some decisions. I chose not to be financially dependent on anyone. I don’t ask for money from anybody – not my parents, not my husband, nobody. That’s why I’ve never solely focused on acting but rather on opportunities. I’m not rigid in my thoughts, and my dream is to be financially independent.”
She also emphasized maintaining a balance in her marriage, stating, “I won’t change myself for anybody, nor will I expect the same from anyone else. Gautam and I have had our share of arguments. I’ve told him he doesn’t talk much, and we’ve had typical couple issues. But then, I remind myself that I don’t want to change anyone. It’s not feasible. I am only making myself unhappy with unrealistic expectations. I can find happiness within myself; I am self-sufficient.”
