London: Singer Jennifer Lopez says that "you`ve got to love yourself first" before you can have a successful relationship.

The 42-year-old split from husband Marc Anthony in July after seven years of marriage.

"I think, I`ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You`ve got to love yourself first. You`ve got to be ok on your own before you can be ok with somebody else. You`ve got to value yourself and know that you`re worth everything," contactmusic.com quoted Lopez as saying.

"And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can`t really have a healthy relationship."
