I Canít Get the Courage
Dear Brother Ron
Tell him since he is now engaged to his girlfriend,
they will want to have their privacy and you feel like a fifth wheel. It's
not that you don't love him, it's just that his new love will probably feel
better without one of the old family constantly around. That way, she won't
have to worry about what you might be telling your mother (not that you
would but it might be in the back of her mind).
Tell your dad that he is still your dad and you will always love him but you think everybody will be more comfortable if you live with your mom. That way, his fiancť will not suspect that he might be clinging to his past instead of moving on with her.
You say you canít get the courage to talk to him. You seem to do a pretty good job of putting your thoughts on paper. Maybe instead of talking to him, ou should write him a letter. He would then have to come to you to talk about it. Since he would already know your feelings and know you do not want to hurt him, it might take some of the pressure off both of you.
