She also said it’s been hard for her to take a breath to process her new life, because she doesn’t want to feel “stuck.”

“I’m everybody’s go-to, and I think that makes people think I’m pretending to be perfect,” she said. “In actuality, I just don’t believe in pausing. Because if you pause, you get stuck.”
