Why Bahati regrets not supporting his dead brother
Bahati, a Kenyan artist, has opened up about how the death of his brother Charles affected him. He says he regrets not supporting his brother at a time when he was battling alcoholism.
Charles was the fourth born in the family and was diagnosed with diabetes at a young age. He started drinking alcohol to cope with the stress of life and his illness. Bahati says that he and Charles would often fight because of Charles’ drinking.
“I failed as a Christian because I used to judge him,” Bahati said. “I wrote him off as a brother because I felt he was not living the life I would want. I forgot that by loving this person I would bring healing and make them understand that alcohol can’t solve things.”
Bahati says that he regrets not being more supportive of his brother. He says that he would argue with Charles over silly things and that he did not show him enough love.
“I have learned over time to forgive easily,” Bahati said. “I forgive my brother for everything and I hope that he forgives me too.”
Bahati’s story is a reminder of the importance of supporting loved ones who are struggling with addiction. Alcoholism is a serious disease that can have devastating consequences.
