    #22 Do You Know That You're Toxic? | Toxicity, Boundary, Communication

    #22 Do You Know That You're Toxic? | Toxicity, Boundary, Communication

    Losing my head, spinnin' 'round and 'round... Do you know that you're toxic?

    Sorry, no, not the Britney Spears' kind of toxic (Free Britney?) but you-are-actually-making-me-unhappy-and-I-am-so-stressed-to-talk-to-you kind of toxic.

    In this episode, four supposed adults talked about our experiences with toxicity in the family and friendship, how we were both the "victim" and the "toxic person", how we learned to set boundaries (even with our beloved parents), and how communications really help.

    But honestly, this is just so hard, we don't really know what we are doing so we would love to listen to your advice!

    #21 What's It Like Growing Up In 4 Continents? ft. Aliaa Gouda | Third Culture Kid, Outsider, Opportunities

    #21 What's It Like Growing Up In 4 Continents? ft. Aliaa Gouda | Third Culture Kid, Outsider, Opportunities

    Third culture kids are people who were raised in a culture other than their parents' or their nationality. This poem by Ijeoma Umebinyuo epitomized life as a third culture kid: “So, here you are, too foreign for home, too foreign for here. Never enough for both.”

    In this episode, we are very happy to have a friend of ours, Aliaa, joining us! Aliaa is a 24 years old PhD student but unlike many others, she has already moved across 4 continents. We chatted about her experience living in 4 different countries, her struggles of being an outsider, how this experience has shaped her worldview, and many more!

    #20 Are Podcasts Eating My Brain? | Constant Stimulations, Emptiness, Mindfulness

    So... we cannot believe this is our 20th episode! We'd like to shout out to you, whether you are a regular follower of the podcast (you, my friend, are in a very exclusive club, so please feel very special!) or a first-time listener (you are also in a very exclusive club so you should feel special too, and let's be friends?), thank you so much for supporting us! We started this podcast simply because we wanted to help people to find a bit of comfort in knowing that you are not the only one struggling and you are not alone in this journey, so again, massive thank you for listening!

    In this episode, four supposed adults discussed why we listen to podcasts, our needs to be constantly stimulated, walking meditations vs eating meditations, why it is very important to keep asking ourselves questions, and many more!

    #19 Am I A Kung Fu Panda? | Illusion of Control, Inner Peace, Planting Seeds

    #19 Am I A Kung Fu Panda? | Illusion of Control, Inner Peace, Planting Seeds

    "Everybody is Kung Fu fighting~ Your mind becomes fast as lightning~"

    Honestly, Kung Fu Panda is such a classic. Every time this song comes on, it'd bring back fond memories... So in this episode, four supposed adults did a movie re-watch and discussed our favourite scenes in the movie, our biggest "woke" moment, the importance of planting good seeds and having good intentions, and many more!

    Also, kids, if you want to be successful and never be disappointed, aim lower. While we are at it... why shoot for the star when you can stay humble and grounded, amirite? #wisdom #storyofmylife #thisiswhyiamafailure #sorrymom

    #18 Bro... Was I Being Ignorant? | Hindrance of Preconceived Knowledge

    #18 Bro... Was I Being Ignorant? | Hindrance of Preconceived Knowledge

    Have you seen people who are such experts in their fields that they become narrow-minded and refuse to take any other perspectives? Are you that person? That’s called the hindrance of preconceived knowledge. We are so bounded by the knowledge and theories that we have and became so narrow-minded and blinded to everything else.

    In this episode, four supposed adults discussed how our pride and knowledge hindered us from accepting other people's view, how such hindrance affected our lives, what we can do to be more aware of it, and how someone was trying to cook a chicken by slapping it 50,000 times!

    #17 Why Can't I Be Happy For You? | Insecurity, Jealousy, Pride

    #17 Why Can't I Be Happy For You? | Insecurity, Jealousy, Pride

    Says no one: I'm always happy for everyone around me for their successes.

    In this episode, four supposed adults discussed why it is so difficult to be genuinely happy for other people's happiness, how we get angry at really nice people, how annoying it is to have Asian uncles and aunties telling us to be a doctor, and really, how horrible we are as human beings.

    But you are not horrible. You are nice, and this is why you would listen to us. The world needs more people like you. =)

AlbsBean ,

Funny

These four “adults” are so funny. I enjoyed listening to them. It’s kinda interesting to hear from different perspectives sometimes.

Chocolativa ,

Come in with no expectation, but left with a smile

My friend suggested this podcast to me... I said it's pretty good. Not necessarily agreeing with everything they said, but hey, its fun to listen to different perspective, and good to know there are young adults like me struggling out there. And they seem pretty fun to hang out with, so ya, not bad lol

Mrbioe ,

They are pretty funny, and... makes me think a lot

I think the podcast is pretty light, the four of them made a lot of jokes, but then also discussed some deeper stuff and made me reflect a bit. Surprisingly good I’d say lol
