Building Confidence and Authenticity in Relationships with Krista Williams

Welcome friends! Today, I’m thrilled to host Krista Williams, a voice of inspiration in the realms of self-love, relationships, and personal empowerment. In today’s episode, Krista shares the complexities of codependency, the power of finding and using one’s voice, and the transformative journey of “glow up” that encompasses both inner and outer growth. 


She shares her personal experiences with overcoming heartbreak, betrayal, and the challenges of forging deep, supportive female friendships. This conversation is all about embracing discomfort, practicing self-reflection, and ultimately, stepping into one’s truth with courage and authenticity.

“Codependency, to me, is me adjusting to in response to any outside circumstances. So whether that’s to social media, whether that’s to my friends, whether that’s to family, it’s me moving, juking, jiving in response to something.”

— Krista Williams 

“Authenticity is, what do I want to create? What do I want to say? Not like, what’s going to do the best, what’s going to go viral, what everyone else is doing.”

— Krista Williams

“Having periods where you don’t have a lot of opinions, you don’t have a lot of feedback, you can figure out who you are, you can test out new things, you can explore, you can recreate yourself is really beautiful.”

— Krista Williams
