The Lost Generation(to my younger brother)

1160 views. 2012-6-28 22:56 |

Hey, boy
Do you know how long I haven't seen your smile? Your smile has been fading away these years. Now it disappears completely. WHY?

You were so active, talktive, and joyful in your childhood, just like a happy prince. You were always popular among people. You were so famous in our small villiage. On the contrary, I was only a "hidden" role. Many people knew you rather than me, they even don't know I am your elderly sister. What a pity!

While you were quite famous in hometown in the past, you are changed from a positive role to negative role now. You've changed MUCH. Two years ago, you dropped out of school owing to your breaking school rules. Several weeks later, Dad transferred you to another training school. Very soon, you quit it because of the same reason. It's obvious that you are fed up with study. Certainly, we didn't force to study.  Since then, you set foot on to society. We supposed you take an interest in other things. But, what a shame! You didn't know what to do either.  Dad arranged different kinds of vocational schools for you. But all his efforts were in vain. You didn't take it SERIOUSLY at all. Later on, you got a job by yourself, but you were often absent, because it was a tough job. You fell in love with a girl at that time. You took it seriously. And it did last for half a year or so, then you part. I know the break-up was a great blow to you.You drunk and surfed on the Internet over night and night. How should I give a comment? An idle or a black sheep?

Every time when you were pennyless, first you phoned to Dad and Mum. After you failed to ask money from them, you turned your attention to me. Sometimes I say No. I am just a student, I have no income. All my living expenses are from Dad. 

You are 18 years old. you are puzzled about your future. It's normal, but the problem is that you have no confidence in yourself.

Hey, boy. You don't know what to do, how can I lend you a hand.

people change often.
Maybe you can talk to your brother patiently to care about what he needs. It is easy for us to make comments or even judgement about someone, but it is hard to really listen to others' hearts and to think in their shoes.

I don't know much about your brother, but in my view, your brother is in bad situation emotionally. As for you, there is no much thing you can do to help him. what you can do now is giving your patience to him or ask some other guys in your family to guide him out of this situation. You can complain about your brother, but never give up him or hate him.
Good luck for you and your brother.

I can't agree more. I've tried to be patient with him, but he just kept silent and indulge himself into games and e-novels.
But I'll try my best to do that. Thank you for your advice.
BTW, long time no see. How are you doing now?

Yeah, you should believe he is able to take control of his life. you should give him enough time and patient.

Nice sister, I think u can find a time to have a long talk with him to reminding his childhood. Life could be totally different if he realised.

Honestly speaking, I am never a good sister to my younger brothers... 囧 It's easy for me to give advice but it's hard to make it...
