Adult Siblings

Here is the person you got, for better or worse, with no say in the decision. This is what in family therapy we call “family of origin,” versus the people we choose as our family, or our “family of choice.” Some adult siblings are fortunate enough to go through life with a built-in best friend while others feel quite the opposite. Conflict can occur especially when there is a serious illness or death in the family. This is a good time to call in an objective but invested mental health professional to help guide you through your process to find your best possible outcome.
