Don’t bring shame to the family, and you’re sweet 🥲 Being the obedient daughter, son or child, or being the good girl or boy – is damn hard! And whilst being ‘obedient’ can look different to each person, how it feels to carry this load can be universal.
Striving to be ‘perfect’ and having that voice and pressure to be ‘good’ can manifest in other ways. We’re talking about being rebellious, being dishonest… finding ‘freedom’ in unhealthy ways, and much more. In this episode, Rox and Jules discuss whether they’re ‘obedient’ and the pressures they had – and still have – to make their parents feel proud, and how they coped – and still cope – with it.
Come get cosy with us for another chatty one and as always, we hope you enjoy another episode of the Asian Soup Podcast.
