How many among you have issues with your brothers or sisters? How long has it been since you had a good conversation? What has happened that made you feel distant with one another?
It is normal for young children to be fighting over a lot of things- from toys, clothes and even with the attention that each one gets from parents and friends. But how do siblings overcome these? Or do they ever?
In my own experience, since I am the eldest, I was a bit bossy. Well, probably it was brought about by my parents being strict and that they expect too much from me Even when my younger siblings have done something wrong, it was always me who gets scolded and told to always understand because I was the eldest. For a time, I felt distant with my brother. I married quite young and so I did not really had the time to be close to any of them. I was mostly quarreling with my brother back then. My sister is 10 years younger than me. We never fought, I see her as a baby that I would often buy things for her.
But now that we are older, all have families of their own, although we don’t get to be together most of the time. The years have taught us a lot. Probably, my parents did an excellent job in raising us up. But what bothers me is how some families have been broken apart because of the siblings who doesn’t know how to respect each other. It is as if all they need to do is stab each other so that the fight would just end. I fear how they are letting their children see their behavior. I fear that their chidlren might be just like them.
How is your relationship with your siblings?
