My son has only been out of the house for a month. I still believe there is drama yet to come but I feel that I have come far in setting boundaries to protect the family. Does the "self talk" ever go away or become second nature? Example, every morning I have to say to myself "If he comes to the door when I am getting ready for work, I have to say that he can't stay here when no one is home". Or other questions like "If I see him walking the streets looking sad, I have to ignore it" etc. Just wondering if it gets easier. Thanks all!
