My Brother And I

My brother and I have always been extremely close we are only a year and a few months apart. We are both in college now, my grades sucked in High School and his were good, but we weren't compared at that point. He went to a four year school I'm at community college and my family, especially my father keeps comparing how great he is I don't blame my brother hes always been really supportive of me and kind. I'm just really sick of it and wish he could see me for who I am instead of who he is. Sorry for the rant, I will stop now, you all have a lovely night.

that is tough. I experienced the same thing when my sis, who is brilliant, was very focused in school and went to a great college and had a great career right away while I spent years just kind of loafing around in dead end jobs because I wasn't sure about what I wanted to do. My dad was ALWAYS bragging about her, I hear. It took me a while, but I found my way and am now successful and happy. Also, I have a lot of life experiences I wouldn't trade for seriousness in the early years. Could I be much more successful now if I were more focused and dedicated like my sis was? Possibly. But again, my journey is priceless and looking back, I don't have many regrets for the path I chose.
