Dad refuses to travel

I’ve lived in the same arena for over more than one years now.

In this amount of time, my family has never come down to visit.

I understand that they’re harshly busy people, despite the fact that I guess it’s a bit ridiculous that they cannot find time to come see my arena of work, my home, or my modern city, then most of all, it stings that my mother will not find time to make the trip. I wish that she had an interest in my life as an adult’s, rather than trying to treat me enjoy a kid for the rest of my life. Unluckyly, she is unlikely to ever change her ways or hit the road to visit. In fact, when it comes to traveling, she has more anxieties than you could believe, however not only is she distraught about the actual travel component, however she goes so far as to preemptively complain about the imagined indoor air pollen levels component on said vehicle. I cannot tell you how several times I’ve heard her talk about the bad air quality on airplanes as well as the prevalence of nasty, airborne germs! The thing is, she has not been on an airplane to experience the stagnant recycled air in over more than one decades, and when I recommended that she rents a vehicle instead of relying on the communal airplane, she starts right away hypothesizing that the on-board heating as well as cooling system will genuinely not work well, then she starts talking about the streaming sunshine heating up her vehicle, as well as how the on-board cooling system will only irritate her lungs rather than cooling down the hub of the car. She particularly likes to catastrophize the entire traveling experience, then don’t worry, she leaves no stone unturned. She also enjoys to tell me about how uncomfortable she assumes my home’s central heating as well as cooling system will be.
