Now he resides with his girlfriend and their one year old son and works nights to provide for his family. As you may see Whaner is a son, boyfriend, father, and a provider as well but for me he 's just my big brother. We are not siblings by both parents he is my father 's son from an affair that ended my mother 's marriage. My brother and I have a great relationship going now but it was not always like that. I had only first heard about my brother when I was like eleven years old which meant he was twelve but I met him when I was twelve because my father brought him from the dominican republic. Before I even met him I would go around telling everyone I hated my brother and yes hate is a strong word but those were the feelings I had towards him and nothing …show more content…
I know that it was primarily my fault because I am guilty of Deception. Deception is “concealment, distortion, or lying in communication”.(209) because i know he would not expect me to lie to him or keep things from him. When we first started to hang out I would smile and nod and be polite when i had to but that was not who I was but he did not know that because I never showed him my true side. This played a big part in the way we communicated and it affected our relationship a big deal because I was not able to actually connect with my brother until after he ran away from home. I was able to see his real side and what he was going through while living with our father. I’ve always been taught not to lie but the way I felt was too difficult to let out and although I had real hatred towards my brother I did not want to hurt him by telling him how I actually felt about

    Christopher McCandless did not make the right choice in not letting his family know he was alive and well. Nothing hurts more than the loss of a loved one, the passing of Chris devastated his family. Chris left with the intention of not wanting to be found, Chris caused stress on his family because they had no idea if he was alive.

I believe Chris made the wrong choice in not telling his family, it caused his family emotional pain.…

    This was partially because of how he felt about his father's actions, but if he viewed them in a good light he would have at least told them his plan instead of having them worrying for years.

    I was ill, depressed, and scared. I was tempted to leave everything and wallow in self-pity but a moment of clarity did appear. That moment opened my eyes. I understood that I needed to prove to myself my own self-worth, which was something I lacked due to years of mental, physical, and sexual abuse. During my father’s illness, I was involved with a man whom I wanted to believe that loved me and would protect me but instead all he wanted to do was brake me.…

    Four Stages Of Forgiveness

    I have sincerely been trying to internally confront my offender; it has made me realize that I have been angry with him and not his girlfriend. Through this process I continued to speak to one of my dear friend about Kelso, however it was almost always to belittle him as person to make me feel better. I regarded him, as “he is someone not worth my time or effort” since I knew I had not lost anything. I realized that all along I have been having a cloaked revenge against Kelso, so his action would not get under my skin. I truly thought he did not need my forgiveness because the damage was done and he was happy posting pictures from left to right with his girlfriend.…

    Also, I had a lot of rejection and ridicule when I came to United States from classmates, so my lack of communication was not to say anything to anyone; I isolated myself. Also, I tethered on being a people-pleaser like my mother in hopes that people would include me into things. I felt uncomfortable around people because I felt as if they were analyzing everything I was saying and may use it against me like my father and aunt did to my mother, my siblings, and me. I rejected guys before they rejected me, because I rationalized that if the guy knew who I was that he would hate me anyway, so I would save him the trouble. Also, I internalized my problems so that I do not explode on others and get called my father.…

    Over time I decided to give it a try, but he was no longer the same person. Due to his past relationships his outlook on everyone was completely different. He was no longer into the affection, he expected me to hurt him like everyone else, and the biggest problems of all, he wouldn’t commit. I didn’t really think too much of it because he always told me that it was nothing serious. I just strongly disliked that he felt the need to lie about any and…
