In this episode, Shah and I answer a listener's letter who wrote to us about the guilt they feel for wanting to move out of their childhood home. This letter helped us to reflect on our own experiences of expectations that our parents have of us and how we've dealt with the tough conversations and decisions that disappoint them. We offer strategies and advice for how to stay firm in what you want; for how to take ownership over your role in the relationship; and for how to embrace a fresh perspective on where your parents are coming from.
