Our expert says:
I think your reaction is perfectly normal and not to be regretted or criticised. As an abuser, he is lucky with the accomodation you have come to and the lack of strong negative emotions towards him which you have achieved. I do NOT agree with the phoney psychobabble ideas that you must forgive and embrace all perpetrators. So don't accept any invitations to guilt. You are not required to have positive feelings for a brother, in fact, let alone for one who abused you.
