Why having brothers are important.

What is a brother

In this case, a brother isn’t just your biological brother, but anyone you consider one. A best friend is a good example of someone who can become your brother. It happens when you have been through things together and have suffered together

Suffering brings people closer.

Friendship is the foundation of a strong brotherhood. Close friends are the people you can trust and rely on.

They stand tall with you not only in success but, more importantly, during the dark hours when you are faced with hardships and failures.

A brother is a very special person. It’s a person unlike any other. When you’ve reached brotherhood status with someone, you have, in your possession, something very weird and wonderful. You have a protector, councillor, partner in crime and best friend, all in one. 

Why is it important?

My brother is the person I trust the most. If I ever need help with something, I go to my brother. If I’m in a fight, I know he has my back. If I am stuck in a burning car, he would rip the door off and pull me out!

That’s the kind of relationship siblings (in this case, brothers or friends that become brothers) should have. 

A brother will always look out for you, make you laugh, defend you, give you advice, keep your secrets and humble you. He can drive you crazy and infuriate you more than anyone else in the world because he is still human and still makes mistakes. 

This is good, let me tell you why: 

It teaches us from a very young age or later on how to deal with people, to keep calm and deal with the situation whilst keeping the relationship intact.

 This quote sums up brotherhood quite nicely.

“He is my most beloved friend and my bitterest rival, my confidant and my betrayer, my sustainer and my dependent, and scariest of all, my equal.”

And what’s better than having a brother?

A militia of brothers.

Having a handful of men you can trust is a blessing. These men can dictate the heading of your life. Surround yourself with good men that bring out the best in you. When men are together there is this transference of energy that makes us feel invincible, like there’s nothing we can’t do. 

You feel like you can conquer the world. 

When the Spartan men banded together they could beat anyone in a fight, because they surrounded themselves with men they could trust to have their backs and fight alongside them without cowardice.

“There is no love like the love for a brother. There is no love like the love from a brother.”

“Brothers don’t let each other wander in the dark alone.”

Now, I know it’s not like this for everyone. Not every man or woman can trust their brother. 

Parents do their children a great disservice when they don’t ensure the unity between siblings. The relationship with your brother is the most beneficial relationship you’ll ever have, if nurtured properly. 

Your brother will sacrifice for you, defend you with his life and crawl over broken glass for you if that meant saving you. 

Let’s take Andrew and Tristan Tate as an example. Regardless of how you may feel about them, the relationship they have with each other is something to admire. Together, they survived in a Romanian prison and stood up against armed men for each other. Once they were out with a friend and he was (unknowingly) dancing with someone else’s girlfriend, her boyfriend lost it and hit their friend. When he got up and wanted to retaliate he saw that Tristan had already floored him.

That’s a solid relationship. 

The opposite side of that is Logan Paul and his brother.

How strong can their bond of brotherhood be if they continually bad-mouth each other, even on live podcasts? If this online facade is supposed to represent their relationship at its best, how bad are they at their worst? 

If you don’t have a biological brother then you need to find other men to fill that void. Men need other men. You can not make it through this life without them. When men- brothers- unite, achieving the impossible isn’t so far off.

Fixing the broken bond between brothers.

The saddest thing for me is to see brothers that hate each other. It brings nothing but hurt and disunity to their families.

The best method I have learned is to talk or fight it out.

Leave nothing unsaid and no feeling unshared. We all know how hot-headed men can get at times. The most important part is to understand what is being said so that you can be understood, as calmly as possible.

If you can understand the other person and articulate how both of you feel, all perspectives will make sense and a solution or compromise can be found so that the relationship can heal.

The relationship with your brother is of great importance. It’s an amazing relief knowing that someone that cares for you and loves you in a way that only a brother can, is just a phone call away. 

A person that understands you like no other. 

I am speaking from my personal experience when I write this blog, that my brother means the world to me and all the above-mentioned things I have experienced first-hand. The love, fights and some of the best and most difficult times of my life were spent with this man I call BROTHER.

Conclusion

This is how people are that are this close. They fight, make peace, annoy the sh*t out of each other and will die for one another. 

“Brotherhood means I will always come for you no matter the cost.”
