When I got a job, I had to move in with my big brother, who is 11 years older. As a kid, I had the chance to be with him, but I never had the opportunity to understand his personality – by the time I grew up he had
moved out for studies and, then, a job.
Now that I have moved in with him, I have more time with him, and as an adult, I’m trying to understand him. Corona has contributed to us come closer more than ever. We were planning to go to our home town, and one day we had this discussion regarding travelling. The talk turned into an argument. Our voices increased in volume. Suddenly, I stopped talking. I was filled with anger and had so many things on my mind. I wanted to shout everything at him.
Then I thought, why should I shout? If I let my anger take control of me, I would say something really inappropriate and would make a deep cut in our relationship. I’m getting to live with my lovely brother after a long time, and I should not hurt that because of my anger. So, I walked away.
Anger works in different ways. Sometimes, it’s better to keep shut when anger takes control.
