My brother and I share a house together. He is the most demeaning, negative, self absorbed person in my life. The letter I recieved from him today about my recent pursuit of a new career has left me completly drained and self pitied. I have used positive thinking in my life for the last year, it has been hard to aquire but I've done it. But this letter has completly left me hopeless in my dreams. I can't run away from him, I live with him. I have tried to ignore his writings but wow this really got to me today.
