What does it mean?

What does it mean when someone tells you, "Don't paint me with the same brush?"

It's referring to something I said to my cousin about my brother and his partner, and how they wanted to take my baby when she was born. She must have repeated what I said, because I got an e-mail from my brother's partner. All it said was, "Don't paint me with the same brush as your brother."

I have no idea what he's saying.

  • Paint with the same brush means assuming another has the same bad qualities as the first.
    It seems your brother's partner did not feel the same way as your brother about taking your baby. That's interesting he wanted you to know that.

  • dont compare me to them
    i am different

    to me it seems that your brother wanted the baby because of your disability and the partner was against the idea

  • Don't compare him to your brother. Don't lay your brother's behavior at his partner's doorstep

  • the partner may be instrumental in resolving the rift between you and your brother
    if youre interested

    he kind of opened the door to a dialogue

  • It means don't let anything between you and your brother taint what's between you and his partner. He wants to be treated apart from your brother.

  • It sound like what he means is. Your brother wanted to take your baby not him.
