How do I dial back my protective tendencies? I'm going away to uni next year, and the thought of being unable to defend my family messes with my sleep. I know it's not normal to always have a contingency plan for everything (i.e. If a burglar broke into the house while I was showering, I'd grab the chlorine from under the sink and a pair of scissors to attack him with), and during HS, I kept a very strong eye on my brother. Hell, I watch every car while I'm walking with my mom (not that it hasn't helped, there was a scenario a few months ago where a car went barreling down the parking lot. I extended my arm and stopped my mom from moving forward, and it's definitely possible that the car may have run over her foot had I not done that). I don't know why I'm this protective. I had a 100% normal childhood, I was barely bullied (my best friend was very big for his age back then and one of the top athletes in the city, I suspect no one fucked with me because he was there, although I did win the one fight I got into). The biggest experience I've had with crime is some scumbag taking some change from my unlocked car at night as well as the one time a foreign dude cut me in line.
This isn't my first time being away from home. I've been with relatives for a month with just my bro, and I've been on several overnight field trips. Are these thoughts normal for me at this stage at my life?
The best part is that I live in one of the safest areas in fucking Canada. Like, this isn't South Africa or anything like that. It's Canada.
