I have a problem with my parents. They always make me feel like a burden. I am 23 years old and have gotten a few proposals for years now but they reject the idea of me getting married while I feel that I am ready for marriage and have recently let them know that which resulted in them being mad at me. They reject the idea of marriage yet everywhere they go and who ever they talk to they say that I am holding them back from travelling and moving to live back home. They tell people they are waiting to see what happens with me. It is quite embaressing, people even ask why I'm not getting married or why no one is proposing to me. But that is NOT the case. What do I do? It hurts me when they talk that way and makes me feel very unwanted. Mostly it makes me angry because they are making me look bad infront of the whole community. After the last proposal someone came up to me and told me that I have to stop rejecting people because no one will ever come to me thinking that I am difficult. The thing is I never get to meet these people that purpose to me because as soon as they open the topic with either of my parents they tell them they dont have time for them to come over.
My question is what do I do to stop this from happening? Just this morning my mother told me that her and my father had a conversation about where they would keep me because they both wanted to go back home. Telling me that because of me they can't do what they want to do.
They reject all proposals but go around telling everyone that I am holding them back and they are waiting to see what happens with me. What does that even mean?
How do i respond to the people that approach me and ask why I'm not getting married?
