Ciara has been in the spotlight for the last few years for music she’s dropped and a storied relationship with her husband, NFL star Russell Wilson. Recently, the singer spoke to 'Women’s Health' and was open about what led her to her relationship with Wilson. 

While speaking to ‘Women’s Health’ for the cover story, Ciara openly talked about her breakup with Future in 2014. “All the things I was aspiring to have at that time, even thinking about love… I was like, It’s going to happen when it’s supposed to,” said Ciara. The singer spoke about self-love and what led to the split. “But I can’t love anybody to the best of my ability if I’m not loving on myself. I can’t be the best mom if I’m not loving on myself. So I put more focus on me, taking care of me; it was the best thing I could have done,” she lamented. 

The singer talked about the importance of self-care, mentally bringing her to a better place, saying, “It’s knowing what gives you a release, knowing what gives you joy. Go to that.”
