      Your parents are trying to protect you, but we often inadvertently hold our kids back when doing so. Sit down with your parents and ask what it will take for you to be able to go out and explore and meet people, after the pandemic, of course. Try to have a collaborative conversation by voicing why this is important to you and listening to the reasons for their perspective. Proposing a checkin every hour or the like might help.

      Maybe they don’t want you out in the city alone but will be ok with it once you make a new friend. If that’s the case, pose some ideas on how you can meet people that they will feel comfortable with, like joining a club or team or taking some sort of lessons with a group element (like martial arts, for instance).
