Dear Dish-It: Big Bro Bully

Dear Dish-it,

My brother keeps bullying me about not being as big as him. He calls me shorty and he picks on me every day. How do I help it?

Dear dish it out person,

When I was younger, my older brother used to pick on me all the time. He was 10 times strong as me so it was easy for him to be a bully. Even though my parents told him to stop, he kept on doing it! It only got better when we both grew up a bit and got more mature – now me and my big bro are really tight! Here’s what you can do in the meantime…

Talk A Lot

Have you tried talking to your bro about how you feel? I mean REALLY sitting down and having a serious convo with him about it? If not, you should let him know how much he’s hurting your feelings by teasing you and how self-conscious you feel thanks to him calling you names. He needs to know that what he’s doing isn’t right.

Don’t Retaliate

Whatever you do, don’t try and get your brother back. It’s always better to take the high road and just walk away. Being the more mature person – even though he is technically the older one – is always the way to go. Maybe when he sees that his actions aren’t getting a rise out of you anymore, he’ll get bored and stop. Better yet, he’ll realize that what he’s doing is really hurting you.

I'd say jeans. I'm a natural born psycho-redneck and leggings are not well suited for my lifestyle. If I had to wear any pair of pants besides Wrangler or Riders jeans, I'd be in a comatose!
