Jada Pinkett Smith admits she is fed up of being afraid of everything.

The 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted' actress, whose marriage to Will Smith, 45, was rumoured to be on the rocks last year, plans to overcome her biggest fear of being hurt by facing things head-on in 2014.

In a mysterious new post on her Facebook page, the 42-year-old star, who has a 15-year-old son, Jaden, and 13-year-old daughter, Willow, with her husband, wrote: ''Since the beginning of the year, I have been examining and paying very close attention to how much fear plays into my decision making and my life as a whole. The idea that I'm scared and that everyone I come into contact with is as well, was a crude awakening.

''Most of us have done such a good job at hiding how scared we are through our anger, judgmental attitudes, arrogance, lack of self respect and lack of respect for others that we don't recognise that when are operating in this manner, in the belief that we are protecting ourselves from pain, it is actually the very thing that keeps drawing the pain towards us.''

She added: ''This year I will be diminishing my fears by recognising my fears and the fears of others while making a conscious, compassionate effort to replace it with light, love and trust within. We all want to love and be loved...period. Let's stop fearing it.''

Jada and Will recently celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary after his 'Focus' co-star, Margot Robbie, was forced to deny rumours they were having an affair when photographs emerged of them looking cosy together in a photo booth in New Orleans, Louisiana, in October, amid reports he and Jada were undergoing a trial separation.

The couple enjoyed an ''exuberant celebration'' in Dubai on New Year's Eve and Jada said it ''meant a hell of a lot.''
