Life is not always beautiful. It does not always have sunshine and happiness and good memories. I have had my fair share of life’s trials, though I try my hardest to stay positive about my life.
My family has really been through a lot… and we continue to go through issues, like all other families. I don’t want to go deep into the problem, as it’s not mine to discuss…. suffice it to say that it’s not easy watching a family member suffer and struggle through their own issues. It’s something that affects every one of us, which I’m sure makes it that much harder on my brother.
Some days I think that I have a handle on it and that I’m strong enough to be there for him and not take it all so hardly, not make his struggle about me. Occasionally, though, I will not be able to control myself from breaking down and sobbing. This isn’t something I can fix for him, as much as I’d love to take away all of his pain and all of his strife.
In the end all I can do is pray that he’ll figure it out, that we’ll all be here for each other, and that we never let any of our personal issues get in the way of our relationships with each other! <3
