Jennifer Lopez Reveals Why She Doesn't Like The Word 'Reinvention': 'I'm Not Reinventing Anything'

Jennifer Lopez is getting candid about her own journey with self love.

In a new video for #CoachConversations, the 51-year-old actress and singer spoke with purpose coach Jay Shetty and revealed she wasn’t as confident as she was perceived to be in her personal relationships.

Jennifer shared, “I remember when I was going through therapy at the beginning, you know, kind of in my late 30s and there was a lot of talk about loving yourself and I was like, ‘I love myself.’”

She went on, “But obviously I was doing all these things in like my personal relationships that didn’t seem like I was loving myself, but I didn’t even understand the concept of it. It took time and it’s a journey and it’s still a journey for me.”

In the same interview, Jennifer chatted about her journey in life, from perspectives of a mother, person and artist.

“People are always like, ‘Oh, she reinvents herself. It’s a reinvention.’ I don’t like that word,” she said. “I’m not reinventing or trying to be something different or trying to trick people into something new. It’s an evolving.”

Jennifer also touched on the importance of self-evolution and that’s listening to yourself.

“Because what you say and what you think, and I tell this to my kids all the time, becomes your reality. If you’re telling yourself ‘I’m gonna be this or I’m gonna be that’ or you’re telling yourself ‘I’m a f***ing loser,’ then you’ll be a f–king loser. Whatever it is, you tell yourself that and it will manifest.”

She added, “I really believe that we create our lives. Again, not just with our actions and the things we do, but the things we think and the self-talk that we give.”

Earlier this week, Jennifer was just one of the performers for the 2021 Presidential Inauguration. Find out which of her songs she referenced in her performance here!
