Learning to set Boundaries

Boundaries aren’t something that necessarily comes intuitively to all of us. Especially when you’re a child of immigrants, latinx, or grow up in communal settings. Sometimes personal space and time to yourself can feel like a luxury. Often we associate boundaries with “American” values when we’re from communities of color.

Learning boundaries are necessary to respect your self, those around you and have healthy relationships. It’s not about being mean it’s the opposite being clear about your needs to be able to grow.

This episode Joy Valerie is talking with Grecia Dominguez Huesca about why this is necessary and how we’ve set boundaries with our own families in a loving way even when we’re being guilt-tripped.

We’re learning to understand where people are coming from but also understanding it’s not our duty to take on everyone’s issues.
