I have a question, and it seems like it would be easier to ask it to people I don’t know at all. My older brother died on 5/15 of last year and although I have accepted it, that’s not the issue. A problem I encountered a lot when I came to college a couple months later was people asking me about my family, ie do you have any brothers or sisters? (I also have an older sister) My question is, do I a) say I have two siblings and then explain every time, or b) say I just have an older sister.
I have gone back and forth with both responses but was looking to stick with one from now on so I don’t have to worry about it. It would be helpful if there is anyone who has experienced something similar but all suggestions are welcome. Thanks
I don’t feel like typing it all out, but my brother died young(23) and it was a result of his lifestyle and not a car accident or similar.
