Yes, thank you everyone. Really, I already knew what you're all telling me, but I needed a few of you to spell it out before I was completely ready to accept it.
Well now, my work here is done... and I didn't even say anything!
Seriously, I think all you needed was a little confidence that you were thinking the right thing all along. Some very good advice here was: don't say anything, learn and grow. Siblings often grow apart, because their lives change and evolve. It doesn't mean you love each other any less.
From your posts, confidence in yourself means you will grow to be less dependent and more self-reliant. This, unfortunately, comes with age or life experiences. Rarely, do we learn it the easy way, my friend.
