I do.

Funny how some people want nothing to do with you for the longest time, then change their tune when the need something.

Yep, I can relate. Prepare to be judged harshly, though.

My own sibling is as dear as my child would be - she and I are psychically joined at the hip, and I cannot imagine going through life without her humor, insights, practicality, imagination and love. She and I share so much history, have dealt with so much heartache, and have so many similarities that it is like talking to an extension of myself when we are together.

I can't say the same for my spouse's sibs, sadly. One of them has been persona non grata in the entire family for over two decades, unfortunately for very good reasons. We see the rest of them maybe two or three times per decade, mostly at funerals.

This is unfortunately a very common thing that happens....I have a brother I haven't spoken to in over 4 years.

Yes, two of them as a matter of fact. Haven't spoken to either in just over 2 years now. Life is so much nicer; they are the most miserable, nasty, hateful, ugly, rude, obnoxious, arrogant, selfish people on the planet.

I only have one and while we aren't particularly close we live nearby and see each other often since we usually both end up at our parents home at the same time. We get along but he is even more introverted that I, never married or had kids, so our lives just went in different directions. We are spending more time together now that he is retiring and my kids are grown and I'm divorcing. Circumstances change everything.

I know some of my friends have sib's that they don't talk to or wish they didn't have to talk to because of the mess they made of their lives and the drama that follows the wherever they go.

I wouldn't trade my siblings for anything in the world.

Some other family members? Not so much.
