I’ve notice over the last couple of years my son seems to have cycles of behavior. He will work for about 3 months, become disillusioned that he doesn’t have all he wants in life, quit the job and otherwise blow up his life. Spend another three months pulling himself back together and then work for about 3 months, on and on. So he’s 2 months and 2 weeks into his current job and seems to be feeling the burn. He wants to go to family counseling with me. I’d be for that but not with someone who lives in an alternate reality and has no insight to his behavior. He wants the counselor to “mediate” and get me to admit to all of my horrible behavior and accept responsibility for it. I’m thinking this means he’d like me to go back to paying his room and board somewhere and for his food so he’s covered for the upcoming life altering bs he’s about to pull. I told him not to call me unless we can talk about normal things and I’ll entertain family therapy sometime in the future if he ever seems to get a grip on reality. He’s not very happy with me, I’m thinking that means I’m on the right path. I still question myself but really, this stuff is so far out there I know any hoop jumping from me would just help to keep him stuck in this mess. Has anyone else experienced these kind of cycles?
