Had a pretty exhausting day…
Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t like confrontation, much less interaction with my older brother at all.
He had borrowed my earphones last night and I needed them this morning. It was pretty early in the morning. I went into his room, gently woke him up and nicely asked for my earphones back.
At first, he said “no”. I didn’t want to deal with whatever crap he was trying to pull, so you can imagine I got a little irritated.
I said, “I need to use 'em.”
He asked me, “What d’you need 'em for?”
I persisted and said, “I just do.”
He said, “I’m not givin’ 'em to you till you cooperate with me.”
I got a little angry and said, “Wow, you want me to cooperate over some damn earphones?” I was about to just leave his room, 'cause I didn’t want to deal with his b.s., but he asked me again,
“What d’you need them for?”
I told him, “I have a class today.”
He got a bit irritated, I guess and said, “Alright, then just tell me that from the beginning. You don’t have to get mad at me.”
He gave them back to me, but then called me a “fucking asshole”, for literally no reason.
I didn’t like that, so as I left his room, I said, “Excuse you!” and left to go to my room. We left it at that, but I couldn’t help crying after a confrontation like that…
I left the house to get to my class early, because I couldn’t stand to be in the same house as my brother.
I talked to my job coach about it and she gave me some good advice.
Sorry if this is a bit random, but I felt like I needed to get that off my chest.
