Walking on eggshells

'Walking on eggshells' means that you're being very careful with what you say or do because you feel awkward and don't want to offend or anger the other person. The idea is that eggs are very fragile, so you have to be very careful or you'll break one.

-I always feel like I'm walking on eggshells when I'm at your parents' house.
-I'm sorry. Once you get to know them better and they get to know you better, it'll be much easier.
