The first thing to do in this case is to try and establish the problem. Because that person may be nagging you for some reason. Try to use lead questions to help them explain or open up to what is causing them to behave the way they do. Before you judge the situation wrongly, it is important to be empathetic. Get into the other person's shoes and try to understand what they are going through. If you are in a position to help, or have the expertise to help, then go ahead. But if you think it is not within your ability, consider referring them to an expert. This is usually a sign of stress or depression and should not be ignored.

That's some good advice. I'll keep that in mind. Thank you for sharing this tip!

I personally start with establishing a boundary. I let them know that them talking to me in a nagging way doesn't sit right with me and I'd appreciate if they stopped. That rarely works in one go but after you've said it a few times people tend to get the message, or they learn to hold their tongue to avoid conflict. However this doesn't always work and when that happens I just start ignoring the person because I honestly can't be bothered with people like that.

I'll give it a shot. Hopefully, it will work with lesser number of trials.

I can't stand people who nag nonstop; it`s ungodly annoying and it increases my stress level. My way of handling them is to cut ties with them or keep my distance. I can't have someone project their frustrations or insecurities on me for no reason.

It does start getting on the nerves! I would follow up on what @bomb said and if somehow, that doesn't sit well, I could try with keeping my distance as you mentioned. Thank you for answering!
