» Oh Brother..

ranting about my brother…

I love my brother, but his actions both concern and anger me. His emotional and psychological growth/maturity is stunted. He does not take an active role in changing his detrimental behaviors. His obsessive/possessive behaviors cross the line into abuse and I worry he will continue to think, despite what I and others tell him, that what he is doing is alright.

He has a terrible temper, which he acts out verbally and physically (to inanimate objects/himself). He’s also a compulsive liar and, of course, denies that. 

I just can’t deal with him when I’m also trying to deal with my own issues and he refuses to seek professional help claiming that it will not do anything for him.
