Are you building healthy boundaries, or putting up restricting walls? With the former taking center stage amongst the collective, it’s an important question to ask. 

Krista Asks: Are You Putting Up Boundaries, or Walls?

This episode was inspired by the journey Krista’s been on to have deep and real intimacy in her relationships – a growing desire to untangle defensive mechanisms that create negative static between people and move toward a more heart-centered exchange with the people in and around her life. 

“Boundaries allow us to deeply know – and deeply be known.” – Krista Williams, Almost 30 Podcast

The truth is that some forms of boundary building have evolved into a method for gaslighting ourselves, a means to create a cozy victimhood to hide away in, an excuse for closing ourselves off from things, situations, or people that may expand us.

We also talk about:

  • A different angle of boundary building 
  • What boundaries are meant to be
  • Honesty and open heartedness
  • Building walls makes a victim 
  • How to receive a boundary
  • The need for control
  • Wall building instance from Krista’s life
  • Good friction between two people
  • Bad examples from The Hills
  • Leaning into love and connectedness
