Unhappy He came home today - May 15th 2009, 05:33 AM

My older brother Brandon came back home today from Fort Bennington in Georgia (he's in the Army Reserves) but for some reason I'm shy and Ive been hiding in my room. This will be the first time I've seen him since Christmas break, during which I tried to kill myself and well...Christmas was obviously fucked up after that. So my first reaction is to just hide in my room but I feel bad cuz its my friggin brother. :S


Yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers
But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.

I can understand, Sam, that it would be awkward for you ):
I'd say at least try to get yourself out of your room for awhile, and that's a definite step. See how it goes from there, simply saying hello? I'm sure it will all go okay, he's your brother after all

Yeah, I know he won't be all "omg are you still depressed? blahblah..." he's not that ignorant and douchey. In fact, he was really nice about the whole thing, he brought me flowers and stuff when I was in the hospital. I dont know why Im acting this way, I feel bad.

Hey Sam,
As you said, he's not ignorant and douchey. He obviously cares about you very much, and would probably love it if you just said hi to him. You don't have to talk about what happened over Christmas Break. Just do whatever you used to do when you two were hanging out before, and you'll be able to relax in no time.
