Are you ready for a change in your sibling story? Many times we are conflicted about our siblings. We may have an “ I Hate You” story about them- but in midlife or any time – we may want to reconnect. Here are some examples how you can really be at odds about your sibling relationship.
- You and your sibling see each other at family reunions, holidays and ritual occasions, like weddings and funerals. When you are there, you do your best to avoid your brother or sister. You have been thinking you should do something about the negativity but are unsure what.
- You are asked to help plan a family event or have your children participate in a wedding or other family ritual. You are conflicted between your feelings of anger or resentment and the need to gather the clan together to celebrate a family occasion.
- You and your sibling are caught in a crisis or your parents have a health or financial issue and you have to communicate with all your siblings again. As a result, you must work with the brother or sister who caused your “I Hate You” story, and you are in pain once more.
- You have chosen not to see your sibling for years but wonder what would happen if you tried again. Do you have a sibling “ I Hate You Story” that you would like to rewrite?. Seize the moment and the power of now.
