All the fights over the TV remote, over whose mom’s favorite, or who’ll get the bigger share of sweets from grandma — all these memories are still fresh in my mind. But with time I have come to realize that younger brothers are indeed one of the greatest blessings for us. They are adorable and living without having them around is tough.
No matter where we live, or what happens in the future, these are the things I want for my kid brother:
I want him to be strong enough to never let anyone make him feel unworthy or undeserving.
He never has to feel alone or neglected. I want him to know that I will always love him, unconditionally.
And fighting back does not mean punching someone in the face, although sometimes, that just might be the case.
It brings us joy. Few years down the line, I know, he will understand. But I don’t want us to lose out on opportunities to spend quality time together.
Travelling opens up new worlds to us and gives us a new perspective on life.
I wish him the world. I want him to eat healthy, smile often and exercise every day. He can drink socially, hang out with girls, party all night, act naughty or even lie sometimes if he has to. But I hope he never stops being a good person and that he never forgets how much I love and care for him.
