This week, Christie, Diana, and Sam get together to talk about the tension between codependence and independence, and how to get closer to a middle ground, interdependence. They go into the challenges of balancing cultural values, personal values, and family values, and offer ways to maintain your own peace, as well as the peace of the family. They also discuss ways that they themselves have gotten closer to carving out their own sense of self amongst external obligations.
