Not all twins are extremely close
I was always there for my brother since I was a small one, especially when our mother left our dad. He wasn’t the nicest to me, in fact he use to bully me quite a lot, psychologically and physically. He would even get his friends on taunting one me through out my childhood, meanwhile my other brother was doing the same. But he was my twin and I loved him, I saw the pain he lived with. We think he might have some mentally thing going on, he always struggled with academics and socializing.
We weren’t close all the time, but he is bit of sociopath. I was one of the only one people he cared about and felt compassion for, others he didn’t care. I felt the need to be there for him, and at times it was only me who could be there for him.
I love him like no other person, I have three tattoos dedicated to him actually.
The day he ran away from home, and the day he got arrested were the worst days of my life. I’ve never cried so hard to what felt like loss.
I haven’t visited him in jail since he’s been there since Dec 2012, I couldn’t bear the thought. It would tear me apart to have leave him there each time. Perhaps I should have found strength to do it, but there has been so many times I lent him strength, I just couldn’t find it this one time.
My phone was turned off in September, and he wrote me an angry letter telling me off. I wrote a letter, I should send it this week, he does get out in three months. (collarsncats)
We’re very different people with nothing in common who live on opposite sides of the country. We see each other about once a year for the holidays and otherwise don’t really interact. She’s generally hard to converse with about anything serious because she’s very opinionated, quite judgmental of people who don’t share her same opinions (and we don’t share many opinions) and generally not empathetic.
The response from her about nearly any problem has typically been, “Well I know someone who has it worse so stop complaining” which is decidedly unhelpful. So, we don’t really talk. (able_possible)
I have a twin sister, but being in a single parent household, we had very different upbringings. Turn out my mom was always more lenient toward my sister since she was the easiest of us to manage. She got private education while I got public, her first car was new (paid in half by mom) while mine was almost a beater, she always had the fancy birthdays while I had only 1-2 friends over for mine. She always belittled me as her failure brother, but I wasn’t aware the gravity of that sentiment until that faithful night last May.
She had moved out of my mom’s place since January but for some reason still threw parties there. Before I left for work, I made a simple deal with her; you need something, you text me please. Couples hours into my shift, my SO blows up my phone about how they are going through my groceries and going downstairs to annoy her.
So when I get home, I’m already fuming and we got into an argument. To spare the details, she yelled some pretty ugly stuff at me and I returned the favor. At that moment, she decided that hitting me on the side of the head was the course of action. I didn’t want to hit her back because I’m aware of that double standard. GF decided to call the cops. All I can remember after it was over was crying like a baby for half an hour in my SO arms.
Then one month later, I moved out with my now fiancée, I fixed my relationship with my mom, but I completely resent my sister and will never talk to her, help her or (If I can help it) see her again. (kingrobiteck)
