My mother accidentally (or so I hope) handed my brother two of my journals, which were supposed to be blank binders for his children. Both of the journals had very intense writing done my me about my brother who was extremely mean to me growing up. I had hatred towards him. These things were written years ago before I was a born again. They have to be at least 5 or 10 years ago (the one about hatred probably 10). My brother also sexual assaulted me when we were very little and I have never told anyone except one counselor along time ago. I believe I wrote that in the journal as well. I had been wondering why my sister in law is not speaking to me and I just found out today it’s because my brother never wants to talk to me again. I feel that the moment my brother realized it was my journal he should have stopped reading it, but he did not. My brother and I have not been close for 20 years (We are both in our early 30’s). At a young age he began either berating me and scaring me with his anger and emotional abuse or ignoring me completely, so I have distanced myself, while still visiting my sister in law and the kids from time to time. He would be there and we shared some words from time to time, but that would be it. He never opened himself up to a relationship with me. How do I rectify this situation? At this point, I feel he invaded my privacy and that he should have stopped reading the moment he realized it was my journal. I can’t help but this this was God’s plan in some weird way.
