oh shit forgot to answer your other question
I take my blogging very seriously, you see
he turned out that way partly due to genetics, there's a fair amount of alcoholism on my mother's side of the family, and some sociopathic traits here and there as well. I'm pretty sure if our dad hadn't died when we were young he would've got the discipline he needed to stay on the straight and narrow, but it was too tough for a single mother to cope with I think.
I'm not sure if he still holds resentment towards our mum for how she was after dad died, but his disposition definitely doesn't help either way
could talk for hours about my brother's psyche but a lot of it's too personal and it would legit take hours
