To be or not to be worried?

Standard

Can anybody tell me what an elder sister is supposed to do when she asks her younger brother about his WhatsApp Dp :

And he says – “Number of years I am willing to live”.

I mean, I am not being paranoid (OK, a little) but what is this supposed to mean? What am I supposed to think of this?
Should I just let it go?
Should I intervene or not?

P.S. sorry for the excessive use of the word Supposed. 😛

  1. I don’t know anything about you or your brother so it’s hard to advise but that looks like a cry for help. I don’t think it’s necessary to “intervene” as such, just let him know that you’re there to listen to him if he needs it. It sounds like he’s having a hard time but he’s willing to work through it. He just wants a little help along the way. That’s my interpretation anyway. You could encourage him to find an outlet, like anonymous blogging and/or poetry, to help him process whatever it is that he’s going through.

    • Thank you so much for your comment!
      He’s not the kind of person who would actually tell me anything if I ask him directly. But I am quite sure its nothing serious. I will still keep an eye..
      Anyway, thank you for your advice 🙂 I really appreciate it!

      • Yes, it doesn’t sound too serious to me either but you’re wise to be alert. I don’t think it matters too much if he doesn’t open up to you, just so long as he knows you’re there for him. I’m sure you can find ways to offer support without being too direct or intrusive. Good luck. 🙂

  2. Hi! Thank you for visiting my blog! Depending on how old he is now, your brother might realize that once he hits 30 or 40 or whatever 15 years from now is, it’s not so bad, and there’s a lot to live for. 🙂 Like having a great older sister!
