i totally agree with you. Men have been socialized to be “strong and silent”, no emotion, etc. [This is a reference to the psychologytoday.com post, “Men and Women Handle Sibling Estrangement Differently.” https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/node/1182228/preview ] My twins, boy and girl, age 40, had a falling out. I don’t know why cause they won’t say. My daughter will talk about issues, her brother doesn’t almost never. When he does, he’ll do it in a long text message to me, but not her. There’s a family dynamic because neither of us are happy with her relationship. I no longer comment or talk to her. Her twin deeply internalized it and is very upset (her partner of 16 years isn’t a very nice person). I’ve told him, her decision and all we can do is be there for her and her children and that there’s only the 3 of us so we need to stick together. My son has always been an “old soul” even as a child. They aren’t like me,who talks about things good or bad. It’s good for the soul. Not sure how to get him to open up more. Any suggestions?
