So I have this aunt and sister and at every meal they want me to finish the whole meal. When I'm full I can't eat anymore otherwise I might get sick. I told them don't worry about left overs because I will eat the left overs. But they still get mad at me and give me attitude. I'm 20 years old and I can make my own desicions, I told them but they don't care. What should I do
Hey Grace :) how are u doing. .
Dont worry much..let thm knw u care for ur body very much and cant eat whn ur stomach is full and not as they wish !! Dnt let them rule over urself !! U are grown up and responsible for urself..Make them knw tat too
Cheers. .take caree
Maybe before the meal you could ask them to give you less food.So you won't have any left overs and they won't be mad at you!
Find out why exactly do they want you to behave this way. Explain them why they are wrong. If it doesn't help, just keep doing your thing without considering them too much.
Sounds simple, and there's nothing new for you, probably. The main challenge is not in knowing what to do, the main challenge is in actually taking an action. You have strong bounds with the family to overcome. It's natural and it's necessary. Otherwise you'll just won't be able to live your own life.
