I feel as though my grief isn’t valid because I lost my brother when I was so young. I was 5 and so was he, he was 19 days older than me. I was so young that I didn’t really feel anything for it until I was 8 or 9, it was my first big loss. I see everybody losing their siblings when they’re both older and I feel so guilty that I have the small touch of jealousy that I couldn’t have that. I couldn’t have my sibling for that long. My best friend has a brother who is 2 years old and he reminds me so much of my brother and it hurt so much to see him on his birthday since his birthday is the same day that marks when my brother passed away.
