My younger brother died suddenly 1 months at 21 years of age. I am 9 years older than him and we were incredibly close. I have found it hard but slowly managed to come to terms with not having him in my life. I have become accustomed to living with the hole in my heart and everything I do going forward I think if it would make him happy.
My new struggle now is my Mum. She is so bitter and negative all of the time. I find myself not wanting to spend time with her because it drains my energy. I need to stay positive to carry on with my life. I find it really hard with continuous negative comments and actions by my Mum. I love my mother dearly but I don't know how to bring this up with her. No matter what anyone does around her it is wrong. Any advice?
