What, YOU again?
Inner demons rarely get banished forever. You get better at muzzling them, that's all. That's enough. They're a part of you. Maybe your hands aren't obeying your will as you think they ought; you don't solve the problem by cutting them off. Figure out what's making them misbehave and face it. Reshape it. Transform it. The relationship between the you is a two-way street, I don't care what he says.
Every once in a while, when your circumstances call up old sheet music, those demons reappear, reduced in volume but still pungent as cat breath and ready to enact the same old stage play.
You get to say "no." Truly.
