My brother is one of the most difficult people I know. We've fought since we were born. As adults, we have extremely different lifestyles. We could still get along, but when we're together, my brother loves to make me the butt of all his jokes. He knows where I'm sensitive and just how to push my buttons. I can only be around him so long before I want to go cry and not see him for a long time.
On the other hand, I know my brother's super insecure deep down inside, and in the past I have exploited his sensitivities with my sharp tongue (only realizing this now looking back). I've apologized, but I think he'll be bitter at me forever. When he was 7 I was 8 we lost our dad and two brothers in a tragic accident, so even though we don't get along, we do value each other and the need to be a family. Right now that means a texted "I love you" every few months, but I still don't want to have contact with him. I blocked him on FB after the last nasty letter he wrote me. Still I feel bad. I've tried so hard to have a relationship with him, and always end up feeling bulldozed.
