1: Taking Personal Responsibility for your Life
The most important lesson I learned from my father is that we are all responsible for our own lives. Self-reliance and freedom from emotional dependency are goals we must all reach for. We all have a personal responsibility to learn to be whole people, to be emotionally and spiritually nourished, to question rules and beliefs that make no sense, and to embrace life and all it has to offer. This is the most important principle we must learn.
2: Knowing and Loving the Essence of Your True Self
What is self-worth? How do you define self-love? My many focus groups demonstrated to me that Latinas can't love themselves until they truly know who they are. Self-love is not something you acquire from the outside world, it is the very essence of your being. Without traditional role models, Latinas have suffered a lack of guidance when it comes to self-love. This chapter helps and guides you to reach the core of your soul by walking you through the most breakthrough experience of your life.
3: Seeing is Believing — Believe in Yourself
We are all plagued by the idea of what we "ought to be." Latinas, especially, are influenced by cultural and familial expectations which many times result in negative messages. Self-imposed shame and guilt are just two of the many negative messages Latinas have traditionally received while growing up. Tragically, all of these negative messages have played a role in creating who we are and how we act. This chapter focuses on replacing the harmful, self-defeating beliefs with positive, soul-enhancing beliefs.
4: Live in Truth — No More Secrets, No More Shame
Finding help in healing shame is the focus of this chapter, and I identify non-judgmental listeners as key in finding help. Exercises focus on identifying the root causes of shame, learning to forgive, and finding hope and acceptance through sharing.
5: Guilt is a Game You Can Choose Not to Play
Refusing to surrender to guilt is something all Latinas must learn to do. Family members, friends, co-workers, and bosses can all affect us by playing the guilt game. Our choices are our own. This chapter provides you with step by step instructions on how to deal with the guilt others plae on us for a variety of reasons.
6: Respeto — You Deserve it, Too
Expecting, indeed demanding, respect is something most Latinas are not accustomed to. Particularly as regards our elders, Latinas have been raised to believe that they must accept anything said about them, with no recourse whatsoever. Expressing how we feel to someone, regardless of whether they are our elders, our bosses, or anyone else, is not disrespectful—it is when we don't speak up that we are showing disrespect—to ourselves. Exercises focus on learning to establish boundaries, and to stick by them, no matter what.
