I’m in my late 20s & very much single. Every time I bring up something I want to do (travel, adopt a dog, make a big life decision in general), my family always responds “you should wait until you meet the right guy to do that” as if I exist to be a man’s companion and not to be my own full fledged person. It’s to the point where I’m deeply frustrated and want to lose it on them. Advice/has anyone else dealt with this?
