would you be jealous?

My birthday was thursday, my brother sends me a birthday greeting on facebook that's it, no card, phone call or gift...my aunts birthday is today...and he has her come up to Indianapolis and they go out to eat at a restaurant about 20 minutes from my house...and they don't even call or invite me...and he never does anything for my birthday other than a facebook note.

  • first off, happy birthday! it doesn't sound like your brother and you are close. Maybe you were once and don't realize that you've drifted. I wouldn't be offended. If this is a relationship you're wanting to be closer, I would work on it. Maybe he feels like you don't want or care if he's around. Ask him out to lunch now and then. I know how difficult timing is. My sister and I lived two seconds from each other for years and almost never got around to doing lunch dates. If you want more from the relationship, give more. It will pay off I promise. And make sure to tell your aunt happy birthday, she may not have realized that you could have gone to dinner with them for her bday. Good luck!

  • yes I would be hurt. My brothers always talk to each other and spend weekends doing brotherly stuff. The only time that I talk to them is when I call THEM. They never call or come over or invite me out. They never wish me a happy birthday. I feel your pain. It hurts to be rejected and neglected...especially by your own family.
