My older brother is pretty similar. People have been telling him to get his life together for 7 years now. I was in that crowd for his first year out of college when he had trouble finding his job but I just listen to his problems now and I'm in no place to judge. I've learned a lot from him and we've gotten along and built a greater relationship as a result.

This one really resonated with me. Thanks, Jessica.
