Brothers and Sisters

Posted on October 23 2016

I come from a fairly big family. I have a sister and 2 brothers. We are all pretty close in age, youngest 32, and me, the eldest at 38.

These people make up a massive part of my world. I adore them. I crave them. I love them so much it hurts. I would die for them. Seriously.

They were my first friends, and also my first enemies. They were my first introduction to unconditional love, and also pure -albeit short lived - hatred.

With such closeness comes hurt. When one is hurting, we feel it. When one experiences success, we rejoice in it. We celebrate each other's wins and we wallow in each other's pain. It's an inexplicable bond.

I can talk to each of them for hours. About anything. We have shared memories, experiences and heartache. We reminisce like oldies on a porch. We talk about each other. About our parents. Our family. We discuss, dissect and philosophise. We share a certain intellect and language which can sometimes be compared to a gang. It's not intentional, but has been called intimidating and exclusive to those in our circle.

We laugh like there is no tomorrow. I have never experienced more mirth than when in the company of my siblings. They are exceptionally funny people. Sometimes inappropriate, but always hilarious.

As much as there is love, we speak to each other like SH*T. Not always, but often. We've done it forever. We barely blink an eye when on the receiving end, but to the average onlooker, our tirades would blow back your hair and burn your eyeballs.

We have always done it. It has always been this way. Obviously yes, at times we can hurt each other, but we brush it off. Cos it's us. But the problem is, it's not always us. Sometimes I forget who I'm speaking to and my acid tongue flicks out like a viper. They flinch at my words and I am instantly regretful. These people have not been desensitised.

Constance Hall wrote a post on Facebook this morning. She spoke about being told that other people were bagging her. The people that screenshotted another persons vitriol obviously thought that she should know that she was being spoken about. They thought that they were doing the right thing.

I'm sure their intentions were pure, however, not everyone can handle it.

We need to use our filters. I've heard people say 'oh I don't have a filter, I just say whatever comes into my head'. I'm sorry, no. I'm not ok with that.

Think about who you are talking to. Think about the way they may react to your 'honesty' or 'opinion'. Think about whether your tone can be brushed off or whether it will be felt like a knife, slicing and cutting into someone's heart.

I've been guilty of this. I can be outspoken and insensitive. But I need to increase my own awareness.

I'll quite happily call my brother a f*cking idiot. But I'm not going to say that to the guy that stuffs up my coffee. Why? Because manners. Because OUCH. My brother won't think twice about my flippant insult because he knows me. He'll probably fire back with an equally insulting jibe. And I'll handle it. Because I know him. He doesn't really think that, and neither do I - it's our personal language. Maybe it's wrong, but we've had years of knowing our limits, our boundaries and expectations.

Next time you decide to give someone a bit of 'home truth' or tell them something 'for their own good' - stop. Really consider the effect of your words. Is that person in a frame of mind to hear it? Will you do more harm than good? If the answer is 'I'm not sure' then just don't say it.

If they are hurting or upset, and you know that they deserved it/played a part in it etc, still don't say it. Chances are they actually know that. No one is perfect. Give them a hug, or if you are anti-hugs like me - a sympathetic pat. Being cruel to be kind is not always and doesn't have to be an option.

Speaking your mind can be a liberating, wonderful thing. If it's used for good and not evil. If it's for empowering, encouraging and motivating.

Closing your mouth can be just as liberating. If it's for protection, concern and respect.

If you absolutely must say something then do it. But try and think a little first. Please.

    HOW WIZARD JAMES RECOVERY helped me when I was unable to withdraw my funds from the trading platform, how did I manage to access my cryptocurrency? I was exposed to the cryptocurrency trading platform smatdec.me, where I invested all of my savings. Despite paying a plethora of absurd fees, they refused to let me withdraw any of my winnings or investment funds. Being a disabled veteran, I have experienced various sorts of financial misery and sadness as a result of losing my funds to these platforms. I was extremely fortunate to find Wizard James Recovery, who was able to assist me in getting my cryptocurrency back after conducting an investigation and discovering that the platform was a scam site that was just seeking my investment money. All of my money was recovered by Wizard James Recovery. I sincerely appreciate it, and I urge anyone impacted by this scam to take use of their services.

  • Emily Naomi: April 12, 2024

    Hi everyone I am Emily Naomi wanna give a big thanks to this wonderful psychic for bringing my husband back to me.. I never really believed in magic spells or anything spiritual but a trusted friend opened my eyes to the truth about life. My marriage was heading to divorce a few months ago. I was so confused and devastated with no clue or help on how to prevent it, till I was introduced to this psychic Priest Ray that did a love spell and broke every spiritual distraction from my marriage. A day later my husband started showing me love and care even better than it used to be, he’s ready to talk things through and find ways for us to stay happy. It’s such a miracle that my marriage can be saved so quickly without stress.

    I lost my marriage after 2 years and it was a horrible experience for me. My wife left me and my son and everything happened beyond my control and I never knew few people around me engineered my wife and turned her against me just because I choose to build my family and focus more on it. I had to seek help because I know I did not do anything to have my marriage crashed. Dr Isikolo helped me and a lot was revealed to me on what transpired. He cast a love reunion spell that bonded my wife and I back together and the whole evil my family did against me was revealed.

    HOW CAN I GET A GOOD HACKER TO RECOVER MY LOST BTC/ETH/USDT/ OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS: IS THE BEST AND RELIABLE
    Hello. My name is Sarah Giggs, and I’m going to tell you all how I fell for a cryptocurrency investment scam. I was first made aware of this scam by a guy I met on Instagram, and after parting with all of my life savings, they defrauded me of $87,000. My credit was ruined and I was bankrupt, which made it the darkest time of my life. I couldn’t believe what had occurred. I denounced the scammers to the authorities, but they were unable to apprehend the perpetrators or retrieve my money. Before seeing an article online about a hacker who could help me get my money back, I had given up hope and was heading into depression. Until I came across an article online about a hacker who could help me recover my funds, at first I thought it was impossible but I realized I had no other choice but to give it a try, to my surprise OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS was able to recover all my funds and upgrade my credit score. I wanted to make this information public so that anyone who may be experiencing a similar scenario and has been duped by these con artists can get in touch with OPTIMISTIC HACKER GAIUS for assistance in getting their money back.

    It is crucial to have a trustworthy hacker. I merely had the idea to share this in order to assist others who might require this kind of assistance! I owe them recognition and advertising, if nothing else, because they truly saved my life. I suggest WIZARD JAMES RECOVERY, a hacking firm I trust for both personal and private hacking, because every job I provided them was completed successfully. Because I was unable to continue with the debt payoff plan that the scammers had gotten me into, WIZARD JAMES RECOVERY AGENCY assisted me in recovering my lost funds/BTC from them. I was also able to verify that my credit card debts and personal credit loans had been erased once my case was handled by WIZARD JAMES RECOVERY. They are quite reasonably priced and provide additional hacking services as well. They don’t take ownership of any information that clients have previously provided to others about the work. They will not sell contact information to outside parties, nor will they share contact information gathered on any hacking job with anybody outside of the hacker’s own lists.

  • Brian K Palmer: March 31, 2024

    My name is Brian K Palmer, and just a few months ago, I was living a crypto nightmare. I’d been lured into a seemingly fool proof investment scheme, convinced I was putting my money into a reputable platform. However, when I tried to withdraw my funds, all communication ceased, and I realized I’d been scammed. Bitcoin, Ethereum, USDT – everything, totalling $120,000, was gone.
    Feeling defeated and hopeless, I started scouring the web for solutions. Stories of successful crypto recovery seemed scarce, and the fear of encountering another scam loomed large. Then, I came across Linux Cyber Security.
    What initially drew me in was their detailed explanation of the recovery process. They outlined their approach to tracing transactions on the blockchain, emphasizing that success wasn’t guaranteed but that they would leverage their expertise to maximize the chances. Positive online reviews, though limited, also instilled some confidence.
    Reaching out was the first step. Linux Cyber Security’s team was professional and empathetic throughout. They meticulously documented the details of the fraudulent platform and the transactions involved. There were upfront costs associated with their service, but they were clearly explained and only payable upon successful recovery. Visit Office website: www.linuxcybersecurity.com .
    The entire process took about two nerve-wracking weeks. Linux Cyber Security kept me updated on their progress, and finally, the news arrived – they had managed to recover a significant portion of my lost funds! Over $85,000 in Bitcoin and Ethereum were back in my wallet.
    Words can’t express the relief and gratitude I felt. Linux Cyber Security’s service was a lifesaver. While some of my investment was lost, getting back such a substantial amount made a world of difference. Their dedication and meticulous approach were truly commendable. Office contact: info@linuxcybersecurity.com

    My experience may not be the same for everyone. The world of cryptocurrency recovery is complex, and there are undoubtedly unscrupulous actors out there.
    If you find yourself in a similar situation, don’t give up hope. Linux Cyber Security may be a potential solution, but remember to do your due diligence before entrusting them with your case.
