Have you ever been asked invasive questions from an auntie or uncle such as, “How much do you make?” or “When are you getting married?” Or have your parents urged you to touch the feet of an elder even if it made you uncomfortable? A lack of boundaries can be damaging to one’s sense of self worth, especially for children, who are taught that their space is not their space. In this episode, we talk about the power imbalance this creates, and how to assert your boundaries. We also delineate the concept of ownership versus caretaking as it pertains to parents and elders, as well as friends, coworkers, and more.
