      Hi Am I trying to protect myself and everyone else in my family from my son’s negative intrusive thoughts, I know I can’t have control over his ocd life experiences. I know I have to let go a bit, and let his life happen. I care about our family, but I mustn’t get in the way of his life, that would lead to him resenting me, right?


        Neither you nor your son need to be thinking in terms of control. More like letting go.

        I don’t know what the specifics are. If you want to say more I’ll try to help you more.
