Are you stuck in a cycle of giving way too much to those around you? Which area of your life can you work on for yourself? Have you been yearning to invest more time and energy into yourself?

In this podcast episode, I talk about how to love yourself and be confident. I share a few of my journal entries with you and take you through my mindset of getting committed to your journey.


  • What have you been conditioned to believe?
  • Commit to your journey
  • Stop giving everything away

What have you been conditioned to believe?

You can change your mind, and you can change your thoughts. What you may think is 100% true is often adaptable, or even someone else’s truth, and not necessarily your own.

It’s not necessarily that I was putting other people ahead of me, it’s not about that. I just had been conditioned to believe that if you’re on a diet that you can’t eat carbs or sweets. (Veronica Cisneros)

Have you scrutinized your beliefs? Have you assessed them to see if they even meet your standards, and can actually help you to create the life that you want to live?

Commit to your journey

Commitment to time. Why am I not committing to the time? Because I didn’t want to see my flaws. (Veronica Cisneros)

You need to commit to yourself.

Love and respect yourself enough to put the time and energy into building the self-love and -self-discipline that it will take for you to create your best self and most fulfilled life.

How can I show up as the best version of myself?… Show the fuck up and practice what you preach. (Veronica Cisneros)

Stop giving everything away

Stop giving all your attention, energy, and focus to everyone around you.

You need to show up for yourself first and foremost if you want to truly be there for those around you in a loving and sustainable way.

I know that you’re under the impression that it’s going to help everybody, but I’m going to tell you right now, that is a lie you tell yourself. (Veronica Cisneros)

Sometimes you tell yourself this lie because you don’t want to experience the feeling of not being needed, which is tough for mothers and parents, especially if that is what you equate to being a good parent.

Which area of your life can you work on for yourself?

Veronica Cisneros | Empowered And Unapologetic Podcast

Hello, my name is Veronica Cisneros, I am a licensed marriage and family therapist for over 7 years, a Group Private Practice owner, a Mother of 3, and married for over 20 years. I help housewives transform their marriage, communicate effectively and build confidence. Like you, I also struggled with cutting through the communication barriers. I felt like there was no reason for my husband and me to feel unhappy because we had it all. We just felt disconnected and our conversations were filled with avoidance, kids’ hobbies, and schedules. 

I’ve helped plenty of couples in my private practice who struggled with similar issues. With my proven strategies and step-by-step skills, I’ve helped hundreds of women reignite their marriages. I am known for helping women step outside of their comfort zones, I don’t do bandaids, I only teach life-changing healing methods.
