My brother has been stealing from me my entire life. Mainly because of his drug addiction but he has become a full blown kleptomaniac and doesn’t even believe in “ownership”. Hes stolen every video game and gaming console I’ve ever had. Actually, more like every electronic I’ve ever had. Including cell phones and laptops.
As of recently he has began stealing my clothes instead of electronics. I guess he sees it as a lesser evil. For whatever reason it hurts more. I’m a girl and I care a lot about fashion. You cant buy back clothes. Once a clothing item is gone it’s gone forever.
About two weeks ago a friend gave me her Tommy Hilfiger jacket and I was ecstatic. I could never afford something like that on my own. Fast forward to today and it’s nowhere to be seen. I looked everywhere. It’s gone along with hoodies, sweatshirts, pants, and more.
I confronted him about it and of course he denied it. He has never admitted to stealing any of my things EVER. It makes me feel like I’m going crazy. My uncle is around sometimes and he is also a drug addict, but has never been the stealing type. To put it into perspective my brother has been to prison twice and jail 20+ times for burglary, not my uncle. My brother is blaming it on my uncle but I just cant bring myself to believe that. He is making me feel like a monster for blaming him and threatening suicide/overdose.
I just feel like crap and IM the one who was stolen from.
