But on a serious note, you're in a difficult situation. You've got no choice but to tell you're parents. It'll sever your relationship with your brother even though it seems you don't really have one. But ultimately (fingers crossed) it'll stop your brother from abusing you.

In a few years time he'll mature and realise what an absolute penis he was, and as a result he'll be begging for forgiveness.

If things don't improve once you've told your parents, I'd seriously consider calling up the police.

No need to use violence mate.

Start with ignoring him and don't let anything he says bother you because the more you show him you are upset' date=' the more he will want to bully you. ;) (edit:Play along with his bullying and don't be afraid to laugh at urself too)

And if it doesn't work and if your family is not ready there to help you, pls reach out for help. Help isn't just in the home;) Talk to some specialists.

But do it as fast ass you can coz you cannot live like that.[/quote']

You guys are amazing, couldn't thank you enough, he triggered me to alert you guys, earlier today he chucked a empty bag of crisps at me, I then asked him why he did so, he told me to shut up, I then turned to cry it out. I'm a easily forgiving character, so silent treatment for me would be difficult for me to maintain, he minute he says something to me I know it's an apology because he never directly apologizes.

You can't be forgiving to such a horrible person. Do you want this to stop or not?

You guys are legends! :-) I hid it with some makeup, so it was rather hard to spot, Phil. Bye Phil <3

Pedro, I think he attempted killing me on a sly, that same day he strangled me and put me against a wall..I sound silly, don't I?

Mate, if your brother isn't a psychopath, he sure acts like it. Tell your parents EVERYTHING at once!

I think he has a anger problem, that I don't know of personally but if I've done something to irritate him, he'll automatically starts to ignore me, which is painful.

Re: The Random Thread

See' date=' I'm not getting it. Why on earth would you have his back?! Have you ever considered that any psychological problems, you may have, are his fault?

Stop seeing him like a brother! If it were me, I'd see him as an enemy and I'd do everything to take him down. If you don't wanna tell your parents (the best solution imo), you don't have to be as physically strong as your brother, in order to make him pee his pants, trust me!

PS: I've added a few lines to my previous post, in case you wanna read them[/quote']

I don't think you understand Pedro. Some people would never consider the prospect of retaliating against their abusive loved ones. At the end of the day, they still love them despite their violent nature and/or fear the repercussions for retaliating.

I'm gonna sound harsh and I'll probably regret saying it, but MAN UP! Seriously you're crying because he chucked a empty crisp bag at you?! Perhaps he's bullying you because you're mentally weak. The next time he does that, psych yourself up and throw it back at him.

Your brother sounds like a psycopath, why on earth do you want him not to ignore you? It ain't your fault he's a scumbag. Normally I wouldn't use these words to describe a relative of someone I'm talking to, but there's no way around it. He's a monster, coz that's no way of treating anyone, especially your (twin) brother.

From what you've told me, he's nothing but bad news. For your own good, please tell everything to your parents!

I do understand perfectly. Blood is meaningless in these cases. KYQS can't see him as a brother, coz brothers treat each other nicely. For instance, my brother and I have had many arguments during our lives, but we always patched things up and we've always gotten along well.

And as harsh as it sounds, you can have no fear or at least you do sth while you're afraid. From what I understand, KYQS already lives in fear. He only has 2 alternatives to overcome this: tell his parents everything (the best option) or retaliate.

Re: The Random Thread

I've got a suggestion KYQS. Get a full-time job, find a decent place with an affordable rent and move out.

If you're in full-time education, get a part-time job, use a portion of your student loan or get some money from your parents and use it to find a decent place with an affordable rent and move out.

Problem over.

That's good advice, mate. But it doesn't solve KYQS's problems till he manages to do what you suggest. The longer he waits to put an end to this, the worse (for him ofc).

Re: The Random Thread

Guys' date=' I need advice, support and love - I have a very dominant brother, very aggressive and rude, he does nothing but kill me deep inside. I've put up with his bullying for years, and I've had enough, he is my age and a matter a fact we're twins, identical if you're wondering. I've considered self suicide, this is something serious that I desperately need help with. He abuses me physically and if I dare respond rudely to when we do argue he WILL injure me. It's gotten to a stage where I don't think I love him to that extent, and this is family I'm taking about. He calls me dumb, calls me a f*cking idiot because I'm not intelligent in terms of mathematics, I lack motivation and I desperately need help. He tells me to do things for him and if I don't he will not allow me to do what I like, so I love video games, he will disallow me touching a console we both use.

So please guys help me, if you can :( if you do read this post, much love to you.[/quote']

If the guy is upsetting you then you shouldn't feel you have to forgive him. I'd ignore him when he's acting up and try to avoid, make it as clear as you can that you don't want to be around an abusive person and you don't have to resort to violence or confrontation to do this, do it passively if you want.

Don't feel that you have to get along with your brother just because he's blood, when you reach adulthood then if you don't want him in your life he doesn't have to be in it at all. If you feel suicidal over this issue, know that there is without a doubt light at the end of the tunnel where if you wish he won't be in your life.

Hey there mate I am sorry to hear you are feeling low, please look for help for this do not let it deteriorate as when you are feeling low a few bad moments can make you feel like everything is spiralling out of control, look for a place to vent where you can get your problems out in the open, somewhere where you will not be mocked or made to feel inferior for sharing, you have to know that no matter what you are not alone, there is help out there.

I lost a parent to suicide and to this day I am crippled with guilt, many years on it is something that is never far from my thoughts.

Here is a page that has lots of helpline numbers and supports groups whether that be by telephone or email, your a young man please at least try and reach out, don't ignore you problems as they can tend to build up then every small thing can feel like a mountain to climb.

But the main thing is, he'll be away from his abusive twin brother and he'll have some comfort in his life. As he's living away from home, he can have the power to decide whether he wants to see his brother or not. His brother can't force himself into KYQS's hypothetical flat as it's against the law. If he does then he'll most likely get prosecuted.

Re: The Random Thread

I urge and encourage you all to stand up for yourselves before you turn yourself mad, I'm used to this harsh type of treatment but I've just about had enough, don't let anybody take advantage of you and learn we're all built to lose, don't always say yes because I've now learnt my lesson and regret it.

Re: The Random Thread

RIP to everyone killed in the Paris shootings today.

Can't say they didn't have it coming though; who in their right mind would make a satire of the prophet Mohamed and expect no reaction? - Provocation at its very best. Sad for the victims and their families of course, but sheer idiocy as well.

Chief communist Hollande has already expressed his views by calling it "an act of extreme barbarism", which I think few can disagree with. On the other hand, he's definitely giving the impression he's holding back quite a few feelings (logically, being the chief communist of France), but the common man will speak up sooner or later, which will be the interesting part.

I think it's fair to say that Islam cannot integrate seamlessly in the western world, as the western cultures are far too open to accommodate something that strict. This is not being helped by the "eye-for-an-eye"-attitude maintained by both parties.

I echo the same sentiments. I'm absolutely horrified by the attack.

As the terrorist groups don't show any intentions of calling it a day, something or someone needs to employ some common sense and realise that yet another reaction will cause another provocation, creating a vicious circle in which both parties are stuck.[/quote']

I agree with most of this, but definitely not the first sentence. Everyone has a right to express their own views towards a specific God/religion if they so wish. Sure, some do it with more 'taste' than others, but it's still freedom of speech nonetheless. I'm Catholic and would never bring any harm to anybody if they were merely verbally 'abusing' me over my beliefs (within reason - it might be a little different if they were either in my face or were getting personal). I believe in God, whilst Billy next door is an atheist. He thinks I'm crazy for believing in what he calls a 'fictional character', whilst I think he's ignorant for not allowing others to believe in something different. Do I want to physically hurt Billy? Maybe deep down (:P), but no. It wouldn't be worth throwing my life away whilst also giving more people fuel to add to religious stereotypes.

Sadly, some nut jobs have decided to take things too far this time by reacting brutally (understatement).

I read that too, although like you say it's relevant following today's events.

"Le Koran, c'est de la merde. Ca n'arrĂȘte pas les balles."

"The Quran, it's useless/sheight - it doesn't even stop the bullets."

"Le film qui embrasse le monde Musulman:" (this contains Mohamed posing as a nude model and saying: ) "Et mes fesses? Tu aimes mes fesses?"

"The movie that embraced the Muslim world:" (Mohamed posing as a nude model and saying: ) "My rear, do you like it?"

"L'amour plus fort que la haine." (Mohamed snogging a white homosexual).

"The love stronger than the hate" (Mohamed snogging a homosexual)

That, is a death wish. They had it coming; they really did. It's one thing being sceptical about religions and their meaning; it's another thing expressing this as a magazine to approximately 200 million readers and thinking there would be no reaction. I almost don't feel sorry for them anymore, as this is just plain stupidity.

This isn't funny, informative or anything for that matter; it is designed to hurt and has backfired miserably.

I know what you mean, in that a reaction was bound to happen but the phrase 'they had it coming' does imply that they deserved it, which they didn't. Whilst it may have been expected due it being a norm, the reaction shouldn't be considered acceptable.
