Responsibility towards siblings

August 8, 2012 at 5:32 pm Leave a comment

I know this sounds weird but I feel a huge responsibility towards my biological brothers and sisters. I somehow feel I’ve failed them in a major way. We were never supposed to tell. The abuse wasnt meant to come out. We werent meant to get out or at least not get out alive. When we got out of it we were all split up, and only the two youngest were kept together. They are still together. I dont see my siblings often, but i am in touch with my next eldest sister via facebook and text and by phone. She will often send me call me messages in the middle of the night or whenever she is scared or having a hard time. Just this easter she took an overdose. When she did she texted me to tell me about it. She doesnt like the family she is with. She wants to live with me. But she cant. I wish I could talk to her more often. She lies a lot. She gets caught and still she lies. Even though it gets her in a lot of trouble. Maybe if she lived with me she wouldnt feel she has to lie all the time. Maybe she would be more stable. Its hard to say. I just feel a responsibility towards all of my siblings. It is my job to keep them safe. I failed at that job.
