My older brother died of SIDS when he was four months old. My entire childhood was me being the biggest overachiever I could and anytime I came home and tried to tell my mom something to make her proud of me, she’d reflect on how she thought my brother would have done so much better on it. Never would say anything positive about my attempts. When she didn’t compare me to the son she lost, she would just interrupt me with “this one time at band camp” laugh, and pretend I wasn’t even in the room. It deeply broke something isnide of me. —Moorebluey
