After several relationships and multiple romances, Lopez has come to a reflective point in her life that she needed to have a break from all these. "I learned a lot from that time in my life where I did overstretch myself," she said.

"I can handle it better because I go, 'No, I'm not going to work on that day,' or 'No, I am going to take those three days off,' or, 'No, you cannot schedule the there'," Lopez added. "And you realize the sky is not going to fall, even though everybody makes you feel like it's going to."
