About The Episode

Boundaries are important. They’re important not just for individuals but for all social relationships in an individual’s life. When boundaries are enforced correctly, be it in personal, professional or social situations, they help us live our lives as per our comfort and understanding.

There’s also a downside when the boundaries get too stringent. We explore all of that and more in this episode. We talk about our experiences with both enforcing and breaking boundaries, why we find boundary-setting difficult, how we actually define boundaries and so on.

We hope you’ll like this episode!
