Let me ramble on about my family!
My family consists of 4 members, the usual nuclear family size, father, mother, brother and moi. Right now there is an awkard air in my house, no one is really talking to each other and I am not on terms with my dad and brother. Both of them have an anger problem that I have grown tired off. So my solution (not really a solution) is to be silent and not give any remarks, which I usually do but this I learnt only made them more angry.
This different feel of air has been with us for the last couple of months but it really thickened a few days ago. Now, my family is loud in general, except me, usually in an arugument my method is giving the silent treatment so that the argument ends after the other person finishes their bikering. Though, my family decides that their voices need to be disputed for the whole street to hear to win an argument. Now, we argue a lot, every day and every hour. If we start a serious conversations, there is always going to be yelling involved.
I do not know if it is because I had a change of mind set or maybe because I matured but I decided that I have had enough. I have not talked to my father for three days and only said a few words to my brother. Now this may seem normal for some of you but I have a really close relationship with my family, indeed you can say I am very family orientated. My hours at home consist of joking around with my brother acting weird, crazy and teasing my parents. Will it every be normal again? Of Course. I started writing this a few days ago, so here is an update. Everything is well and normal again, there are arguments still everyday, but now I try not to get involved or raise my voice. I just sit and observe the situation which is often funny.
This took a few days to write when it should have been done in less than an hour, but I had chickens to look after (aha) oops!
