It's Layered Podcast

“Healthy boundaries are important, but you may be building a brick wall when a picket fence would do.” – Amy Dickinson

Boundaries are all the rage in wellness speak. What exactly are they? What does it mean to ‘set boundaries’? Ummm, we’re African - how on earth do we set boundaries as black folks within a society that completely disregards personal space and autonomy?

Personal boundaries can be defined as“the limits and rules we set for ourselves within relationships. A person with healthy boundaries can say “no” to others when they want to, but they are also comfortable opening themselves up to intimacy and close relationships.” | Therapist Aid, UHS Berkley

We delve into all of this and more. How we are personally trying to set boundariesand the struggle that comes with it. We also talk about healthy boundaries and how we can allow those we trust and who honour us within our personal space.

Help us out and let us know some of the ways you practise healthy boundaries. What has been the hardest part?
