I was really really close with my brother as a kid, in fact until I was in my early 20s. Then he got married and had kids. I understand that relationships have to evolve and change but it often feels like I went from number one to not even being a second thought. The thing I am finding really difficult is that it feels to me like he now won't acknowledge how close our relationship was, I don't know why, if I ever mention anything, even off hand about us as a pair he always reacts by affirming his family now. I feel like my family went from me, him and our mum to just me and her.
Sorry for the ramble. It's all just weighing on me.
