Go back to the house where you grew up and remember why you were so angsty as a teenager. With a bit of extrapolation, maybe figure out why you’re so angsty right now.

Politely ask your parents to treat you like you’re twelve. Invite them to scrutinize your eating habits. Make yourself a pawn in the ongoing household squabbles that were hinted at (but never directly discussed) in previous telephone conversations.

Acknowledge that although your family is weird and crazy, this house is the warmest and most welcoming place you know, full of people who accept and love you unconditionally.
