Ask Allison: My brother is a bully and a victim, and I m considering not inviting him for Christmas

Question: I am in my seventies and I’m writing with regard to my brother, who is a few years younger than me. He is single and to put it bluntly - he is a very difficult man. He is a bully and a victim and sees only his own point of view. Every time I have a conversation with him, I leave it feeling upset. Interacting with him is changing who I am. I have become very defensive with him and I find myself snapping - which makes me feel unhappy with myself. I have always included him in our family celebrations, but I’m considering not inviting him for Christmas this year. I find as I get older, I am less willing to allow him to ruin my time with my family. My question is, should family ties over-ride everything else, or can I cut ties?
