You’ve done great with your life so far, and you will do even greater things! Your brother is jealous and leave him be.  Just tell him not to talk to you unless it’s something nice.

Wow.

Sounds to me like he is being rude, plain and simple. I would not take this to heart- chances are there is some other stress in his life and he is taking it out on you as you are close to him.

18 year old guys just suck sometimes, they think they have it all figured out. My brother and I used to get in some vicious fights, and we’re pretty much best friends now. Just keep doing well for yourself and wait patiently for him to mature into a friend worthy sibling, that’s what I did 🙂

Don’t let this get you down.  He was probably just saying that stuff out of anger.  He obviously has a lot of growing up to do.  Maybe after you both cool down, you can have a conversation about it & let him know that his words hurt.

Wow, I’m sorry you’re brother is treating you like that! I have great respect for what you’ve done in your life, and no one should make you feel bad about your situation – you’re doing great! 

When I think back about being 18, I cringe. I thought it was all so easy and I’d get it all figured out – years later, I’m not even halfway up where you are! Be proud of yourself, your brother will find out soon enough what the real world is like.

Don’t take it personally. He’s in an emotionally and mentally exhausting part of life, obviously feeling very entitled and possibly even jealous of your life. He’s acting like a spoiled brat in myI opinion. He should get over it and apologize. Dont confront him now, maybe next week when things simmer down. You’re doing just fine, don’t let his warped eighteen year old sense of the world get you down.

Personally Im jealous, I think you have done more before even graduating highschool than most!!

Hes 18 and egocentric. Just try to play nice and kill him with kindness.

He’s 18. At age 18, he’s be the ‘smartest’ he’ll ever be. People at this stage in their life think they know everything and that the world revolves around him. Wait til he matures emotionally and experiences the real world, and don’t take it personally in the meantime! I’m having some issues with my 18 year old sister and the things that come out of her mouth either drive me to tears or make me do a major facepalm. But I keep reminding myself that her brain isn’t fully developed yet and that our relationship is still a work-in-progress. 

I swear I wasn’t that bad at 18, but my mother has reminded me otherwise Tongue Out Hang in there, these teenagers are a piece of work!

Ignore him. 

On a side note- I grew up very close to Rancho Cucamonga!  Hello Inland Empire!
