i have been avoiding to talk to my brother for a long period of time... try to keep the conversation short... i'm a little bit mad at him... for other reasons. but recently i have been so uncomfortable talking to him... :|
that happened to me before and it hurts not to be able to be yourself around family. i say try to hang out and do some activities once in a while just so he knows you care, it should get better with time.
I find it awkward talking to my dad. When I was little we were closer but as I grew up we kinda stopped talking though we all live together, me and my family. I think it's because the less time I spend with someone and the less we talk, it becomes harder for me to not get nervous around them.
