While promoting her new book, “True Love,” Jennifer Lopez shared her struggles with self esteem in a candid interview with Today Show‘s Maria Shriver.
Understanding how to love herself has proved to be a major turning point, with Lopez noting that the key to happiness is embracing the good and the bad.
And then she said this, which I had to write down immediately:
“It makes me crazy that people try to put women in a box, or try to say, if you’re a mom, you can’t do this, or if you’re sexy, then you’re not smart. Yes, I can be an awesome mom, and I can be a sexy woman, and I can be a smart businessperson. I can do all of it. Just let me.”
Hi-fives, J.Lo. Hi-fives.
Pick up a copy of “True Love” from your local bookstore or DGOE affiliate, Amazon.
