There's a four year age gap between us and this, coupled with our opposite personalities and genders, seems to make for an explosive combination. I'm the studious, quieter one and he is the boisterous, sporty one. Lately he has become downright nasty, swearing at me, insulting me, rolling his eyes and even resorting to violence. He's only fourteen but already he's much bigger than me and I'm honestly a little intimidated. He's clearly my parent's favourite due to his personality and looks (he is the spitting image of my mother while I seem to take little from either side of the family.) and can do absolutely no wrong in their eyes.
Things jave gotten so bad that we cannot even be in the same room as each other. When I stand up for myself he resorts to anger and I get the blame because I'm supposed to be the mature one in the situation. To make matters worse we are going on a family holiday in two weeks time and I'm honestly more than a little worried about what will happen.
Is there anything I can do, short of ignoring him entirely, that will make things a little smoother until I move out for university?
My fourteen year old brother despises me?
