The Question Club
alright guys, i'm in a little bit of a pickle.
i am the oldest sibling of three and i have younger brother and sister. they are 17 and 16. they never tell me anything from their personal lives, and it's upsetting, because i really want to be able to share things like that with them. i have never done anything in the past to have them not trust me, so i'm not sure why they'd want to keep all of that to themselves.
anyhow, here is my question. i am usually the last one on the computer, and last night i was shutting off the computer and saw that my brother's myspace profile was open, and he wasn't logged out. there is a lot of drama going on here in the house and he seems to be really stressed with everything, and i did a very bad thing and snooped through his messages. what i found was shocking. first of all, he sent two people messages asking where he could get 'shrooms at. i also found out that his girlfriend thought she was pregnant and was just going to abort it and had already had one abortion. some girl sent him a message asking if he knew anyone who sold ecstasy and he talked to another girl about some red pills that he had.
so, i have no idea what to do from here. i can't say, "hey, little brother, i broke your trust and looked through your myspace messages" because it was a terrible thing i did and i am very ashamed about it.
however, i am almost glad that i did because i had been a little suspicious that he had been using drugs and i am worried about his girlfriend getting pregnant on a weekly basis, pretty much.
so, question club, what would you do in this situation? talking with my parents will only make it worse for him because my dad will come down even harder on him and then my brother will be even more depressed etc etc etc. i don't think i can face him and tell him that i snooped, i'd just rather take it to the grave with me.
ETA: please don't tell me "you are a terrible sister what are you doing i'm glad i'm an only child blah blah blah" because i already feel terrible and that isn't my question so please save your sass.
