When you get home late or when something seems off, your close ones feel concerned about you.
Normally, when someone says ‘I’m worried about you’, you don’t pay much attention.
But, you should be grateful that someone is waiting and worrying for you.
In this post, we share the best responses to share with someone who worries about you.
This way you tell them to relax.
And, more than that, you express your respect for them.
How To Respond When Someone Is Worried About You?
When your family member, parents, or partner express their worries about you, make sure that they feel valued (and not neglected).
The first thing you can do is to make them feel at ease.
Because you’re fine and there’s nothing to worry about.
As a respectful gesture, you can thank them for thinking about you.
This shows you respect their feelings and concern for you.
If you want to make your reaction more respectful and special, we have some suggestions.
So, when someone close tells you ‘I’m worried about you’, you can share these better responses which are more than just thanks.
Based on the connection and situation, your response changes.
So choose likewise.
1. “Please don’t worry anymore. See, I’m alright.”
You weren’t able to contact your loved ones while returning home.
There was some situation and no update from you, which obviously made them worried about you.
But somehow you reach home safely and you tell them not to worry.
2. “I’m so sorry that you have to worry because of me.”
It was a prank on someone.
But you didn’t know that this person takes it that seriously.
You apologize for making them worried for you.
Because that wasn’t your intention.
3. “And, I was worried about you that you worried about me.”
Because you couldn’t contact each other, they might be so concerned about you.
You wanted to share an update of your well-being, but couldn’t.
So when you finally get back to them, with this response you worried for them, too.
4. “I know, but you don’t have to.”
There’s nothing to worry about you.
Because you are fine, mature, and not a kid anymore.
You want your parents to feel relaxed and not to worry about you.
5. “Oh Dear, I don’t mean to keep you concerned.”
When your close one says they are worried about you, you can reply nicely.
It shows that you appreciate that they are thinking of you.
And, now you tell them that there was no problem at all.
6. “You can relax now, as I’m feeling a lot better now.”
This person comes to visit you and check how are you feeling now.
Maybe they have been worrying about you, as they have any no update from you.
So you tell them not to worry about you.
7. “Stop worrying about me, because I don’t worry about myself, too.”
You can share this funny response with your friend.
It’s not serious situation nor do you take any seriously.
This way you tell your friend that there’s nothing to feel worried about.
Because you’re good at handling such things.
8. “Are you worried or just curious?”
With the tone, it indeed feels sarcastic reply.
And, this you can share with your rude relatives.
