Of course your feelings of guilt, difference, distrust, and anxiety, are normal. One cannot ask oneself how come, but rather, must ask how can it not be that way when you come from such abuse. And not just neglect either. This was neglect to such a degree that it became a form of physical abuse. It was also emotional abuse of both you and your brother.

You can't change how you feel. You can only change how you think. And when you change how your think, you automatically change how you feel, which in turn automatically changes how you act.

The memories may never go away. It's what you tell yourself about those memories that can change everything. If you keep telling yourself how horrible things were and how it should have been different, you continue to set yourself up for disappointment and misery. Find the positive, difficult as that may be. Focus on that positive instead of focusing on what can never change. Give up on the idea that things could have been different. What happened happened. Only your thoughts about what happened can change. And when that changes, so will your feelings. I send you and your brother love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
