Been there, done that, for sure!
But, I love my Options (wouldn't trade them for anything!) so I adjusted. Sometimes, when I revert to pushing the point, I use my index fingernail. It's just long enough to work, but not so long that it hurts!
You could also try a couple of coats of Liquid Bandage. That'll give you some protection without being bulky.
But, best yet, somewhere along the line you'll probably make the adjustment to not pushing the point and naturally find a more comfortable way to maneuver your stitches.
Whichever you choose, just enjoy! Knitting is so super!
Good luck and happy knitting!
