I am about 9 years older than my little brother. We have been best friends for more than 50 years. Love and respect have always been the driving force with us. I figured that Id always be his ally, but it turns out that he is my enemy. He has more book smarts than me but has done nothing positive for our relationship since his first marriage ended. During the divorce many years ago I tried to offer help. I listened to his every complaint and sympathized where I thought I could help, and kept quiet when I thought it was necessary. Recently little brother told me that I was a dog and a bully. Now I am forced to just wait until he comes to his senses, but in the mean time he expects me to live with all of the disappointment, heart ach, loneliness, sadness and despair of the situation. What would you do?

Seriously and Grandma...hats off to both of you. Grandma,I wish you were my grandma because maybe you could whip my family into shape. Seriously, you and I would make good friends because I think I may come from a family as bad as yours sounds. I just know my own heart,and no matter how bad the things they say to me are, I know what all I have done and tried to do for them. Keep your heads up everyone,and just know that I have almost taken my own life because of the way my family has treated me over the years,and its just not worth it. Some people are just really really messed up,and the only way they can feel emotion is by hurting the people closest to them. If anyone ever needs to talk or needs help or advice regarding this,I promise I have a lot of experience and am available to talk. Hope everyone has a great day!!!

I think if parents pick certain kids over other kids, those kids will grow up to hate each other. Lousy parenting is d cause.

I tried multiple times to help my sister... yet she throws a tantrum when I don't cave or do what she wants... I'm not perfect and have done a FEW stupid things... but she does something stupid EVERY weekend. Like can't buy food but buys a plane ticket to visit guy in prison she met online... As of today, i'm done with her, there is no going back. I'm so glad to be done with YEARS of abusive one sided relationship. Last time someone treated my dirt, i divorced him... unfortuantely i wasn't smart enought to learn my lesson with the ex. STAY AWAY from friends OR FAMILY that YOU KNOW are nothing but trouble.

Everything I've read on this topix is true. Family will backbite u anyway possible. Hell I got snobbed at a family funeral. Then talked about worse than a dog. So this last funeral I didn't go. They can talk about me for not being there. I can't stand any of my great trashy relatives. Do the world a favor and od. One less on the draw.

My opinion is, they try to get one up on the other. In my case, it's one of my husbands family members. She recently lost a lot of weight and since then thinks she is Gods gift to not only men but just God gift. Everything she does is so much better than what anyone else does. Her daughter is so much better and wears better clothes than any other kid in the family! So she thinks!? Anyway, people change when they get older, it all boils down to pure right out JEALOUSY. They thrive so hard to try to be better than anyone else.

It's because they only want to be around you when they are bumbing money. My husband and I work hard for our money and his family thinks we're supposed to give it to them everytime they come up with a sad story. Then they buy their pills and lay on their butt till they come back for more. We are so tired of being nothing to them but a money tree. They never have even called except when they needed something,then get mad if you don't give it to them. So good riddance! Family means more than just born into the same blood line.

They can lie to man, but never to God. Keep them in your prayers, still be kind to them.

I have a situation with family, you try & help them & bend over backwards doing everything that you can but they always seem to want more out of you & want you to break yourself in two helping you. But they will never do for you what you do for them. But the moment you treat them the way they treated you back, your the bad guy. Family will use you up as long as you allow them to but the moment you stand up for yourself & stop allowing them to use you there is a problem because you won't let them use you anymore. Why do they feel like they can treat you like shit but be ready to fight a outsider that treat you the same why they just do? Like its ok for them to do it but not the next. Smh

Think smart once people take an davantage on you they will do it more often they think that they are doing right of being rude always stay with God and do what is right to their eyes hide when you do things wrong not infront of your family the more they see wrong to you the more they get you down.

family will drive you apart faster than anything if you let them.
i know this one family, the older siblings, all worked for their homes, worked and live good decent lives.
but there are a few who think one sibling owes it to them to keep them up.
they are constantly asking for a handout.
bumming and just expecting it.
and they drag this person down to their level and he is better than any of them.
works his ass off and doesnt ask anyone for anything.
but because of this, because he is willing to work hard for what he has, he is dragged down because they try to make him feel guilty.
they tell him he acts above them, so, he will go hang out and get drunk because its what he thinks they want from him.
in order to be accepted by his own family, he has to stoop to their low life level.
it makes me sick.
and this has contributed to his marital problems.
his wife gets the anger that he wont show to his family.
she gets to hear how SHE makes him feel bad and she acts better than him.
and in the meantime, if she spends 4 dollars, she gets jumped on, yet, he will give his drunk and dopehead relatives money cause he dont want others saying he acts better than them.
the best thing to do, is tell your family to stay out of your marriage and stand by your spouse if they are doing the right thing,
because these vultures will be happy to swoop in and pick whats left of the bones when you have nothing left.

I'm a senior citizen living and caring for my mother. what does my younger sister do? She has me evicted from my mothers home.
gives me 30 day notice. Other sisters have a private meeting,
telling everyone I'm a danger, they all vote me o u t.
so I move into my car, hit the road, no where to go. My income
is less then 900.00 a month. I can't rent anyting but a camp site.

what makes family hate so much. I will take this to my grave.
myself alone. 7 siblings, hating me. a mother that refuses
to help, a cowward. No love in Cayucos

Somebody help me out here. Why do families fight amoungst themselves so much? I just don't get it. I mean some of the things that families do to each other just blow my mind?
