After our wedding my wife and I moved four hours from our hometown. We wanted to get away from our relatives who had no sense of how to mind their own business, and were constantly interfering in our lives, wreaking havoc. It was one of the best decisions of our lives. However it had a drawback. Moving away from the toxic people in our lives meant moving away from the ones we loved.
I have not seen my brother (who I told about my AB side a few weeks prior to the wedding) since the wedding, and talked to him only a few times. There was no fight or anything of that sort, it's just since moving we have been on conflicting schedules. When I have attempted to call him he has been busy, and likewise when he has tried to make contact with me. Tomorrow he is making an impromptu visit for the purpose of introducing my wife and I to his girlfriend. Something he has never done before.
I could not be more excited about this. I love all of my siblings, but I think I would be lying if I said he was not my favorite.
I honestly believe that the soul exposing conversations the two of us shared after I opened up to him about this side of me has brought us much closer together. I don't think he would have made a four hour drive to visit for the day prior to my sharing this with him.
I know this doesn't really warrant an in depth conversation, but I am really stoked about his visit, and wanted to express it.
