I live with my parents, so being told what to do by them is a given. It has helped set boundaries and remind them that I am 31 and have to make decisions for myself even if it seems like the wrong thing. My parents have recently been very nervous about the skyrocketing COVID cases and do not like when I go out at all. The frustrating thing is that they will still go to hair appointments, and I’ve even seen them take candy out of a communal candy bowl. I wonder why the eye doctor would even have communal candy out in the first place, especially during a pandemic without a virus.
How do you deal with people who care about you and tell you to be safe but then go and put themselves at risk? How do you talk to them about it without sounding like you are nagging or being sarcastic?
