My brother Will and I grew up being the best of friends so this is kinda of a sad time for me.
I just received this text message from him:
You're making a big deal out of something you wanted "I hope he hits me..." You said that multiple times. Well guess what you got what you wanted. "Losing your family". Really? Everyone is on your bloody side. That's not to say I'm on dad's side but lets talk about losing your family. You told me you tried to convince mom to divorce dad. Great, tear our family apart that way we really do lose our family. If that would happen I would never talk to you again. What would your mother do then? Move in with you. Ha. Lets picture this...CHURCH. You would want her out as soon as possible. You know your mother might be ignorant but your father sure as hell is not. He tried to raise us as "sons and daughters of God" but we all did other wise. Your father isn't stupid he knew what you and Nick did, he even knows about you and Jon before you got married and he saw Silvia going that way. That's why he got so mad. That doesn't excuse hitting us but its a way to understand his side. I'm not going to pick a side cause you're both f****d up and both to blame. Go ahead and get mad, don't talk to me for a while. The truth hurts. Regardless, much love.
Well he spoke his mind. There are some truths many times I did say that I hoped he would hit me cause I would hit him back but to hit me when I was down and not able to defend myself that's not right. I did most definitely tell my mother to divorce that monster and everyone knows it. I would even be willing to work full time to provide for her financially. No one should ever live in fear. It makes me sad she has never known true happiness. I guess there goes that relationship. I will never again be speaking to my brother. Sad day.
I still however have my amazing husband and son and think that I will somehow survive without him in it. What is the point of having family if they are not supportive right?
