Lopez revealed that everyday is like a “war” for he so she needed to address her critics in a “relaxed” manner. In the beginning of the video, Lopez shared that she ad just finished her meditation.

“Walang dapat magagawa at walang dapat mangyayari na nadadamay ang buhay ng present at future generations,” she spoke.
