Perhaps I am just heartless

But my little brother is in jail again. He was arrested one week ago. I am not sure of the circumstances and to be honest at this point in time...I really can't be bothered worrying about it. My mom called me today as she was driving home (she's been on vacation for 2 weeks...out of the country) I dropped the bombshell on her...don't get me wrong, I totally expected her to be upset, but what I didn't expect was her to start sobbing uncontrollably. I get that he is your son and I hope that I never have to feel what she feels as the boy grows up. BUT this is NOT the first time he's been in trouble with the law...and my family speculates that he was arrested for harrassing his ex-girlfriend. Yes they were together 7 years and yes it probably feels impossible to him right now to even consider moving on...but that gives him no right to continually make her life a living hell...he did a good job of that while they were together.

I do love my baby brother...in fact as children we were very close. He took a turn for the worse in his teenage years and has never really straightened out since then. You beat your girlfriend and you need to know she will never take you back!!! (If she's smart and strong enough that is!!)...that's what I would love to scream at him sometimes. I've tried to be supportive even when times were tough for him...but it's just never enough...he always finds some reason to be mad at the world.

I have a younger brother that got a DUI last year and he still drinks and drives. Boys are stupid and will never learn their lessons. Sounds like our brothers need a good ass kickin'!

I'm sorry you are dealing with this internal-emotional rollercoaster. You're right, he did do something wrong. But you're also right, he is your brother. It's hard.

I'm sorry you and your family are going thru this. Hopefully this is his wake up call and will slowly start to straighten him out.
