:: Taking Care of Others ::

A good start to morning – I was listening to this

Cute song by The Cure on Lush FM:

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's gray and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love
Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh, Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love
Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate...

Only to be disrupted by my younger brother Bren.

Just passed his birthday in August in his twenty first,

I learned that he has been smoking for a while, and that

He has borrowed some money from a friend

And is in debt. I am affected, because there are a few

Underlying issues – first of all, he did not approach me

For money even though he needed the cash.

Secondly, he was willing to get himself in debt for

Things like cigarettes and his bike installment.

While I will help him with his situation, I wonder

What would be the best course of action.

Helping to repay, without a firm commitment from Bren

Not to borrow again, will only exacerbate the borrowing

Habit – if we do not drill down to the real cause

Of the problem. I asked for the contact of his friend

Which he borrowed from. And then, a commitment to

Quit smoking and not to borrow from others again.

But I can only hope that he learns and grow

Up quickly.
