How to Understand Boundaries

Ep. 270

The recent publication of Jonah's Hill text conversations sends Stevie and Tessa into a deep dive into learning what is a boundary? Was Jonah using the term correctly? (Spoiler: no) How can you use them in your own life? Are we doing more harm than good weaponsing therapy-speak? Fascinating stuff if we say so ourselves.
