I was on Facebook the other day where I stumbled upon pictures from my twin brother and his girlfriend's recent trip to New York, and out of the blue I was experiencing a deep profound pride in and love for him.

We've always been on good terms but we're clearly different people...

Physically, he's tall and slender, while I'm shorter and stockier (fatter, if you ask some)... Fur-wise, he wouldn't fall into any bear-type classification. He's always been very extrovert and physical, while I'm more introvert-ish and bookish...

For many years, he had jobs that didn't need an education (although he later had training to become a polymer technician), while I've did the scholarly thing and got myself a degree in Computer Science at the University...

By the time we were 7 or 8, I was already understanding the English programmes on TV and found solace in reading novels and encyclopedias - he was struggleing even to read Danish (it turned out that he had a dyslexic disabillity, but that was not discovered for some years)... In fact, at night, before going to bed, I'd read the speech bubbles from Donald Duck comics for him...
Yet he has always been good at setting goals for himself and following through on these, even if he had to work twice as hard as the competition.  A quality, I've always admirered (even envied)...

In short, I am emensely proud of him, his accomplishments and the almost care-free way he lives his life...

It was very nice to read about your perspective on your brother, and your appreciation for the difference between the two of you. Thanks for sharing this!

Family is family and you appreciate them more as you grow.
