I talked to my brother. I straightforwardly told him my concerns about his situation’s
affect effect (fuck you, world, I used to know the difference between those) on our dad’s health. We then had a long, fruitful conversation.
People, let me repeat–I straightforwardly told him my concerns.
I kind of wonder if I’ve been kidnapped by aliens and replaced with a pod person. I have feelings. Confusing feelings.
People who have feelings are ’emotional’. ‘Emotional’ people may say something truthful which would force others to face an ugly truth or two. So emotional people are not listened to and should just go away and be emotional by themselves.
At least that’s how it goes in my family.
