"ONE SHOULD ONLY QUESTION GODS WHERE NONE BUT GODS CAN REPLY." FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE

Get this:
My brother just called and yelled at me because I'm "winging it" with my life right now, and he feels I should promise him a certain level of financial support every month. This may or may not sound reasonable to you, if you know about how screwed up my family is, but if one takes into account that I've recently left my job and am in the process of moving across the country among all the other things I have to take care of, I'm feeling a bit PO'd about it. I asked him to give me 2 months before I make any sort of promise of that kind, as I don't know what I'm going to be making for a living, (not looking for a job until I get here,) and I'm going to give him a chunk of cash for wrecking his car that should tide him over for a bit. Life is full of uncrtainty. He is so terribly threatened by unstability, but there's nothing that I can say to reassure him that everything will be okay. He has always been looked after in the past, how is now any different? I've already proven my support for the family. I just want to tell him to get bent, but that would sound unsupportive.

    I quit my job around the same time as you and am loving uncertainty right now. Good luck to both of us! xo
