My name is jala blash and i live with my mom and my two older brothers i am having a problem with my oldest brother because he is a drug addict. He steals money from my mother and I constantly. I try not to always day anything because I’m training myself to be nicer in the name of the Lord but if i was my regular self i wouldnt be so nice. He is 30 years old 30! And steal lives at home. He has no job and every decent paying job he has ever had he lost because he is lazy. He is slowly ruining me and my mother’s lives. My mother is so blind and soft on him because he’s her son. This is understandable but if my 30 year old son was stealing from me, not caring that his teenage sister needs support and is also jobless AND is on drugs im kicking him out. I want my mother to open her eyes and stop being so nice but she just doesn’t get it. I don’t want to day this because it’s sinful but it’s how i feel. I hate him very much and am sickened by the fact that we are related. I wish i was just the only child . This is no type of sibling rivalry. He is just sickening. When he steals money from me my mom or my second brother he does that he couldn’t give a care about our lives. And frankly i don’t want to call that a brother. It is taking a toll on me . What kid wants a brother . I no longer feel The need to pray about this because i hate him do much. I feel cursed because of the way my life is. It’s not just my brother the are a number of things that won’t fit in this box. I am 15 y/o and i can say that I’m losing my faith. I cut every time i get this depressed and i don’t feel bad because I’m training myself to accept my life. If there is no hope then what is there for me? I hate talking about this because no one will truly understand this. I just hope that there is someone that can relate if possible.

Firstly, I’d like to politely address your self-harm.
Please, Please, go tell your mother, a counselor at your school, or even a trusted friend about this. Self harm can get very out of hand and if you cut too deep or in the wrong place (you should not cut at all to begin with) you can bleed to death. I do not say this to be mean, I am just very serious because I used to have a friend who cut herself.

Understand that you have a right to feel fed up, after all, he is stealing money, and making poor life choices.

I do not know if this article will help you, but here is a link to an article about dealing with difficult people for Christians.

Also, do not feel afraid at all to tell a pastor or youth group leader at your church, or any church, about what is going on.
They are people who are close to God, and can help you overcome this complex situation. I always find churches that emphasize a relationship with God are the most down-to-earth.

May I also say, I LOVE your profile picture of those blue frosted heart cookies! Did you make them yourself? 🙂
