Based on her caption, Ren is totally prepared to take on anything that 2021 has in store for her. At the beginning of 2020, the social media influencer, who boasts over 14 million followers on Instagram, was navigating her breakup from actor Noah Centineo. After almost a year of dating, the two called it quits in early 2020. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, published in October, Ren reflected on her relationship with the To All the Boys I've Loved Before star and shared what she truly wants for her own future.
"I wanted a better relationship with myself after that," the Dancing With the Stars alum explained. "That was definitely the conversation I had. I was like, 'How can I now treat myself better? I think a lot of people when a breakup happens, we think it's our fault. We think we could have done things better. We could have done this. And for me it was like, 'OK, the universe wants me to focus on myself,' and I can totally do that." She went on to admit that self-love is "not the funnest thing ever," but that she knew that she needed to "evolve." As a result, she channeled many of her emotions into writing music and poetry. Ren added, "Heartbreak just breaks you open, and here's your soul and, like, create with it. So, that's exactly what happened."
