School Does Not Make You Smart

How I Learn Best, From Someone Much Younger and Inexperienced

My brother is twelve years younger than me; that is one hell of an age gap.

He has seen the dramatic ups and downs of my life, from a front row seat and it has not always been pretty.

What I have learned from my brother is the strength in silence.

It is easy for outsiders to compare our lives and calculate who is more ‘successful,’ which is quite silly.

My brother is wise person.

He never wastes his time with bullshit people and this allows him the ability to be there for those he truly cares for.

I am not an ageist, that’s why.

His wisdom may very well come from the fact that he was able to observe and assess his siblings before him mess up.
