He has always been like that since we were young. I am older than him but he is always bossy and acts like he pays me for the things that I do for him. He is one of the reasons why I hate my life....I'm happy with my life outside our house...but there are many things about my family that make me cry.

if you're happy outside your house i think you should move out from your house and rent an apartment. I think you can be a happy person if you stay out of your family.

if your income is sufficient for you to support your own life then your parents need to understand that it is time to let go their child, sometimes parents still think their children are still a kid even after we grow up. So i think you should explain to your parent that you are a grown up and you need to try to live by yourself without your parent watching your every move.

There's no need to say you hate your life, that's no way to talk. I'm not a huge fan of my brother either. He is older than me and kind of just ignores me. It's a shame because I used to look up to him when we were little. I've done a lot for him, and bought him a Christmas present every year, and he's never really been supportive of me. He's just sort of snobby and stuck up a lot of the time, so I don't really make an effort to talk to him anymore. Sometimes family can be the worst thing, when they're around you so long they forget what respect is all about.

Sorry if you didn't like the word "hate" but honestly, it may fit to "my family life". But my whole world is just affected. I have my dreams but I just can't do it cause I can only do what my parents and other relatives want me to do.

I also have a younger brother, well its just the two of us. Sometimes he's also annoying but I also love him so much. He's sweet and kind to me and I'm thankful that he listens to me and respect me as his sister... On your part, I think the best that you can do is to to ignore him or be more patient towards him. He's still your brother no matter what. You can also pray for him to change for the better. Nothing is impossible if you have faith. I wish you all the best and I guess deep inside your brother's heart, he loves you.

My brother is really disrespectful,bossy and stubborn but above all I love him so much.He's my little boy, if im so mad at her I will just kick his face, I am so mean if im so mad. And i dont hate my life because of him, i am just tired sometimes but i do care for my brother..we bond together and can get along, there are just stupid moments..I hope you'll have good moments with your brother too.You can tell him straight what you hate about him. I just hope he's old enough to undertsand you.

My brother is five years younger than me, and is very disrespectful. Because we both still live with our parents at the moment, they often end up being a mediator whenever we have a fight. The thing is, if I ever say a bad thing about him, I get accused of bullying him; yet whenever he makes comments about me I get told that I shouldn't be so sensitive and that he's only joking. He says everything in a "jokey" way, but the jokes are very distasteful and do tend to get to me after a little while of having to constantly listen to them day in and day out.

I am sorry to hear about that. I have a younger sister, and she annoys me a lot. I don't talk to her anymore because I am trying to avoid her. When I talk to her, she is always shouting. It just makes me sad that we have to live with those kind of family members. I guess my hate for my sister started a few months back. She was always verbally hurting my mother. There were also times when my mother would wait for her late at night because she is not home yet. I just hope that everything will turn out alright soon.

this is a common family problem. In family,all the things are just imposed on us. You can't totally elliminate the affect of ur family on ur life bt u can surely reduce it. For this, u have to become independent in all respects-physically,mentally and financially. Dont indulge in the activities which requires contact with ur brother. Dont get dependant on him for any work and talk the least. Make urself financially independant is bestway to gain respect.
