Re: I can't love my brother

sounds as if your mom has issues too


((hugs))


I'm not in contact with either of my sibs. (long story*)

If you burned your hand on a hot skillet, would you touch it again? Of course not. Would any logical, kind, loving person tell you to touch it again? H E double hockey sticks NO.

The same goes for poison, and your brother is poison (your mom sounds like she may be an enabler).

There is no reason for you to drink the poisoned kool-aid anymore ... nor expose your family to it (even if your kids don't see it, they know when you get uptight, besides... don't accidently teach them that they have to put up with being bullied... even if someone is "family")
