My younger brother just told me that I’m not invited to his wedding and it almost broke me
For context, there are no sibling dramas. We use to be extremely close but due to the age gap (10+years) and my mum passing away we grew apart due to the fact that he’s my half brother and he when back to take care of his dad.
I understood that due to space constraints etc he might not be able to accommodate me and when he told me all that I just said ok on the phone hurrying myself to end the call and I also understood that at the end of the day it’s just a wedding and our bond is stronger then that but I saw a part of me die at that moment.
Am I overreacting?
- I’m sorry to be the person to tell you this but
If he’s not inviting you to something as important as his wedding then obviously you’re not as important to him as he is to you
The feeling isn’t mutual buddy
- Space constraints sounds like a crap excuse. You’re literally his sibling and he has no space for you in his wedding???
Sounds like there’s a lot more to this story or there’s some hidden animosity that you yourself are oblivious to.
- I’m sorry to hear that. But just remember his wedding day is his day and if it means him not inviting his half brother for the sake of pleasing his dad then so be it. Nothing you can do to change that.
- From your description, I guess is same mom different dad? If that is so it could be that his dad does not like you to be around, is the only thing that make sense. Even knowing that will not help you feel better. That’s life.
