/əˈfɪʃ.əs/ (adj)


meddlesome and too helpful, intrusive, bossy, overbearing, interfering, eager, overzealous, pushy, unwanted, self-important, bumptious, unofficial, domineering, opinionated, bureaucratic


In all cases, meddling is different from advice in that it is unwelcomed, counter-productive, and the officious person giving it often takes your response to the unsolicited advice personally. Because even some of the most important people in our lives can be meddlers, it’s important to navigate these relationships in a way that leaves the meddler with a clear message and you feeling you have set appropriate boundaries.
