Episode 47: Setting boundaries with Mormon family

This week, Cari and Kelsae discuss creating and maintaining boundaries with families, especially abusive families or families who are still involved in a cult which harms you. They talk about their own personal journeys setting boundaries with their families and all of the accompanying pitfalls and feelings. Feelings are gross but also important, or so Cari’s therapist tells her all the effing time. Also, Cari and Kelsae are soliciting your stories of your families and why they need boundaries or how boundary setting went. Please email those to us at nomanknowsmyherstory@gmail.com

This week, Cari and Kelsae discuss two major topics: an article in the Salt Lake Tribune this week about a trans individual who will likely be expelled from BYU for seeking top surgery and self-care in unsafe, traumatic situations. They know a little bit about that due to where they are broadcasting from this week. Listen for the full scoop!
