In the original interview with women’s health, Ciara opened up about what helped her become the wife and mother she is today. “I figured I had to figure out how to navigate the next chapter of my life,” she told the magazine. The 37-year-old star says she was ready for a dramatic change in her life. “All the things I yearned to have at that time, even thinking about love…I was like, it’s gonna happen when it’s supposed to happen. But I can’t love anyone to the best of my ability if I don’t love myself. I can’t be the best mom if I don’t love myself. So I focus more on myself, I take care of myself; it was the best thing I could have done.
Since her split from Future in 2014, Ciara has moved on to “Level Up” in a number of different ways. She went on to share how self-care played a role in her now-improved life. “It’s knowing what gives you liberation, knowing what gives you joy. Go for it.
As for Future, the “Wait For You” rapper still has his fair share of relationship issues. He is currently being sued by his ex, Brittni Mealy over a child support dispute. But that didn’t stop the Atlanta rapper from owning his self-proclaimed “Toxic King” title.
