“It has been very challenging to find words for boundaries, and to even feel like it’s okay to have boundaries, in a family where you’re supposed to be doing everything communally. Culture is such an important aspect of boundaries, and it often gets missed.” – Silvy Khoucasian

We chat about holding firm boundaries to create nourishing, supportive relationships as you go through life– That includes understanding attachment theory, making your own choices about what aging successfully means to you, and setting compassionate boundaries with family even when it conflicts with their cultural expectations.
