help! how do you get along with your siblings???
I hate this! I go back to college in a month and I can't even get along with my 4 brothers and sisters. My eldest sister is married and inCali, so she's never around. but i'm stuck home with my younger teenage sister who's 17 and a younger bro whos 13...and I'm in my early 20s and I can't even get along with them!!! the problem is that i'm an angry person..i can never talk nice to them or lovingly to them..which i know they love and crave. I just yell and scream and curse and I can't stop... how am i supposed to make them listen tome, or be nice to them..i feel like i need to change my internal self and be at peace with myself. uggggggggggggggh i don't know =(

The sibling bond is like no other. It's wonderful. I remember when my second oldest brother went to college; it really made us closer. Space will give you perspective. My brothers are my best friends in the universe, and good, honorable men.
Part of being able to communicate clearly is maturity on everyone's part and knowing sometimes we don't get listened to. What people listen to is calm rationale sans snobbery. (I say that as the baby of the family and knowing how indignant older sibs can get when authority is questioned.)
