My Brother and his Girlfriend of a year and a half broke up this week. She decided that she wasn't in love with him anymore and moved out of their apartment to live with her best friend. My Brother is devastated. I'm worried about him because he has a past history with drugs and drugs lead to him getting into trouble (ie: jail time). Never in a million years did I think my brother would turn out the way that he has. We came from a good family with mostly good (ha!) values. He's got a lot of anger and pent up frustrations in him that I don't understand. I just hope that he can pull through this situation and not lean on drugs or alcohol to mask the pain.
He has been calling for the past three days crying on the phone. Today he seems to finally get that fact that she is gone and not coming home. He's really, really sad. I wish I could take his hurt away and make him understand that God is teaching him something and there is a reason for this. He's going through the motions right now and we'll be here for him to help him through this.
Sigh, Life is hard sometimes.
