He’s my brother.
You know that song? ‘He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother’. Well, it’s a great reminder for me. I know ‘brother’ can substitute for a metaphor also, but I have a brother that challenges that exact phrase.
He can’t help himself, he’s my brother … is more apt.
He falls back into the same pattern and each time it has been the same problem that led to it, himself.
He’s a high functioning independent, dependent.
I use to think, he just needs more maturing, confidence, life skills and he’ll be able to manage himself and relationships, but now I think it’s more a personality type, his.
However, he keeps me honest, a reliable sister, me.
Just thought I’d put it out there…
