There is a destructive belief active for some people: To stress for you is to care about you.

Their expression of connection is them telling you how much, and to what degree they are stressing on your behalf.

The kind thing to do for them is to ask them gently to stop.
Their stress adds more stress to your life.
And that is not caring.
