Jennifer Lopez Opens Up About Divorce With Marc Anthony
Jennifer Lopez is an actress and pop star, known for her talents all over the world. But just like every star that is in the limelight, her personal life has also been in the tabloids as many times as her professional life was. She was and still is discussed for her love life decisions.
One of these decisions involved a certain singer called Marc Anthony. The two got married in June 2004 and divorced in 2011. However, ever since their divorce, they have managed to stay friends. Jennifer and ex, Marc are often seen together at their children’s events at school.
However, even though it is pretty easy to blame the ex for your failed relationship, Jennifer does no such thing.
In J.Lo’s new book “True Love,” she talks about working on her mental health to heal her emotions. Going to therapy made her realize that the issues in their marriage did not have much to do with Marc.
“The problems I had weren’t about anyone else, they were about me,” Jennifer wrote in the book. “And there were a lot of problems. One, I discovered I had low self-esteem, which I had never pictured myself as having. Two, I worked on learning what integrity meant, which would cause a massive change.”
Moreover, Jennifer said that although people want her to feel sad about her failed marriage, that is not how she views it. Rather, she wears that badge with pride. J.Lo now feels proud of herself for getting through that tough time in life.
Jennifer Lopez On Her Relationship With Herself
Because Jennifer had low esteem and fear of a failed relationship, she ended up staying where she did not need to. And once she healed and learned how to love herself, it changed how she interacted with other people.
Finally, Jennifer said that she feels proud that she can now make better decisions for herself and her children. She feels no embarrassment in admitting that it took her quite a long time to figure it out. However, she is proud of herself for getting there.
“Finally, after 40 years, I was able to understand what I was doing wrong,” she continued. “I’m proud that once I got OK with the fact that just being me was enough, I actually became a better version of myself—as a person and even as a performer.”
