Defeat the Stare-Down
A few months ago, my brother gave me the icy stare (more like a glare) because I asked my elderly father a question. I gave my brother a look of total confusion, and he continued to glare at me for the next couple minutes. My sister was also present and witnessed my brother's behaviour. I tried my best to ignore him. Later my sister told me I didn't do anything to deserve his treatment, which made me feel a bit better. I was caught so off guard by this behaviour, that I didn't confront it. Now, family get together's are very uncomfortable. My brother won't acknowledge me in any way and will look right through me, and refuses to talk to me. If I ask him a question, or try to engage him in conversation, he pretends he didn't hear me, and won't even look at me. I find myself walking on egg shells around him, as does the rest of the family. At this point, when my father passes away, I don't hold out hope of any relationship with my brother. Hard to believe his 5 year old behaviour belongs to a 57 year old man!
