Then it sounds as if your parents need to know that you are a responsible adult now and they can trust you and you do know how to be safe on your own.

Humiliate me- they let everyone in my family (cousins, uncles, aunties), acquaintances from far back as primary school cos they recognise them to the worker at tesco. They let everyone know how bad of a son I am. It is pretty hard to believe but it is true. They really tell people "oh... is so bad, gone without my permission, worried out of my mind, blah blah blah this or that oerson did something similiar and is now in prison. Am I a bad parent for protecting my son. blah blah blah". It is like why does everyone else need to knw? What have I done that is so bad?
I help with shopping etc..
Start small, like calling just before you leave work/school and say you'll be back at a certain time and then make sure that you are back at the time you said consistently. With your parents permission, you might be able to join a martial arts club to help with the safety issue. I had to persuade my parents to let me join an MMA club, but now they know that if I go out by myself that I can be safe and I know what to do if I get into trouble, so they tend to be a bit more lenient when it comes to me being on my own.
