loved one: I grew up in a house full of boys. I have four brothers who were rowdy and loud. Also, my father had a very big presence at home.
I have a boyfriend who is unlike them. He is sensitive and considerate. As much as I love my family, I will never call them sensitive. My boyfriend cries when we watch some movies or when sad things happen. I love this about him.
But when he is around my family, it leaves him insecure. They constantly nap at her and tease her because she is “soft”. When I tell them how much I like them and I appreciate that soft side, they laugh at me.
How can I get my family to welcome him when he is so different from them? Clearly, they can be bulls.
Stop bullying my man
Dear stop completely my man: Your lover needs to work out a level of comfort for himself with his family. You can’t do that for him.
He does not have to become a bully himself or attempt to separate from him, but he needs to establish his place among the boys. My guess is that they will need to be able to ignore them, falsify their taunts, and stand their ground.
What you can do is make sure that you tell your family clearly how much you care for it. You too, should ignore their body. If you do not add fuel to that fire, it may decrease.
loved one: I get tired of wearing a mask every time I go out. I thought COVID-19 would be handled now. It’s been almost a year, and I have. I want my old life back.
Also, I found out that I know that a woman caught COVID even after wearing a mask, so what is the matter?
I think I just want to live my life and see what happens. I am young and healthy. I want to see my friends and take off this mask. Since I’m not sick yet, I think I should be good. Do you think i’m stupid? I do not plan to be careless. I just want my regular life back.
No more mask
Dear no more mass: It makes complete sense that you are tired of epidemics and recommendations on staying safe.
We are all tired. And so far, more than 400,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, including many young, healthy people. It’s real, and it’s just not going away. Your friend who got the virus wearing a mask is proof of how dangerous the disease is. This is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend several measures: covering a face, staying 6 feet apart and washing your hands continuously. They also suggest that you do not gather in enclosed places whenever possible.
You should continue to follow these guidelines, even if it is frustrating. We don’t know how long it will last, but it won’t be forever.
The vaccine should help us dramatically once enough people have been able to get it. Be patient Travel far and wide with loved ones.
Follow President Biden’s request for his first 100 days. it is worth it.
