My brother has a major chip on his shoulder and it's really pathetic to watch him lash out at others instead of dealing with anything. It's sad because he just lacks the emotional maturity to handle things, so he regresses and acts out like a 10-year-old. He's going to be 20 in December and I really don't forsee any major changes in attitudes or behavior. And, you know, it's not like I wouldn't like to have a sibling I could interact with, someone who could handle an adult conversation, a person who could deal with frustration or negativity without resorting to juvenile trash-talking or destruction. So, I try to just ignore him because I know that we're not on the same wavelength, but it's really tough to not want to knock him on his ass sometimes.
