Question Posted Saturday December 23 2006, 1:28 pm
I have two brothers, one is in high school and one is in collage, i am in middle school. Because of the large age gap, my brothers are great friends but i am left in the dust. Even when im talking directly at one, if the other one comes in, he completely looses focus of me totalk to him. Most of the time, i'll be talking and then someone will inturupt me without saying im sorry or anything and just continue with what they are saying. When i do that i get in alot of trouble for being"rude". I just dont think its fair that they can be so rude and inconsiterate to me. Can someone please tell me if i am overeacting? I mean they are my brothers and i love them to death, so why cant they love me back?

They just don't see you being older is all. You will have to let them know. Next time one of them interrupts a conversation with the other simply tell them. "Hey, I was talking here. I don't interrupt your conversations so please don't interrupt mine." :) [ karenR's advice column | Ask karenR A Question ]

Your probably not over reacting, your just upset that you can't be closer to them like they are to each other, right? I bet they love you back, they are your brothers. Its just alot easier for them to be closer to each other cause they are both guys and probalby have alot in common. But they're your brothers, they love you even if it might not seem like it.
