I am a selfish person.
I have recently found out that my younger brother has gotten a girlfriend and a surge of jealousy ripped through me. I have no right to deny him of a love life but I don’t want to give him away. In my mind I am thinking that while I’m away toiling alone on this distant land, my family has moved on without me and it saddens me. I don’t want anybody, not even my brother’s girlfriend, to be invading my family’s photos and dinners while I watch with helpless envy thousands of miles away.
