"So I’m 27, my little brother is 17 I’ve been taking care ever since he was a baby our parents would always b at work, so I’m the one who took over my moms and dads job, anyways So me and my little brother agreed that I was paying Netflix and he would pay for Apple Music so we can both save money and help each other at the same time. So when I make changes to my account I always let him know so he can put the new information into his Netflix account . So yesterday he removed me from his Apple Music and put his girlfriend, I got so upset and felt hurt because he didn’t tell me he was making any changes or he would removed me:( I feel like he could have told me but decided not too. I cried.): I texted my little sister and told her and she said “oh dang you seemed so hurt “ you guys think I overreacted over this or I’m right for getting upset ? Please no judgmental"
