“You are an alpha male – dynamic, assertive and charismatic. You are rich, successful and happy. Having taken after our mother, you are tall and handsome. You have a stellar career, a beautiful wife whom you love and who loves you. At school, you were Head Boy and excelled at both academic pursuits and sporting pastimes. You have many skills and are creatively brilliant. You are knowledgeable, witty and popular. Brave, sincere and trusted. Altogether – a superb human being.
“I on the other hand – am a loser. Everyone steps on me and everything I have ever had, I was given. Having taken after our father, I am short and chunky. I have never been able to maintain a relationship or hold down a job. At school, I was barely noticed and became academically mediocre. I am slow, dull and unimaginative. In short – a waste of space.
“But I have one thing you will NEVER have – a fantastic brother.”
