When I was younger my parents got divorced and my mom remarried 3 times after my dad. I used to ignore my little brother and spend more time with my step siblings in an effort to make new blended families work. I know that he felt left out and that I had abandoned him when he had no one else to turn to. I carry that guilt with me every day and I know that I our relationship would be much stronger now if I had paid more attention to my brother then. I was so young and didn’t see it then but I feel awful now, definitely baggage I carry with me every day.
