1st Blog entry: Diving Into the Past
My brother was always violent as a child and we argued about everything. I think things got worse as we grew up. I can remember one argument where he ended up strangling me. I still to this day don’t know why. I only managed to get away be resorting to violence myself otherwise there is a possibility he may have killed me.
Another time we were home alone having just got in from school and for some reason that I can’t remember, he chased me up the stairs and tried to stab me with a knife. A horrible thing to have to deal with. Things only got worse when mum and dad split up and eventually got a divorce. One of the very few times we were ever close I suppose.
He would lash out at anyone and have no real reason for doing so. It was so unfair and I didn’t know what to do because I was also dealing with being bullied at school during this time. I felt so unhappy and to be honest I just wanted to die. I feel like that now sometimes. If you let someone important or someone you are close to know they will help and you won’t have to suffer alone and that is the best feeling in the world.
