      You must maintain kinship ties no matter how shytty they are. But you should offer to buy the whole set for a low enough price and called it a day. Take them home before she tells your brother what happened.

        No, you don’t. If your family does nothing but legitimately fuck you over and actively shit on you compared to, in this case, his brother, he should not stay in contact with them at all. He is doing well for himself, they aren’t even trying to give the set to him willingly. Literally what incentive does he have to not cut ties with them? Makes no sense.

        No the fuck you don't, my biological brother who's only two years younger than me took the worst traits of the people who brought us up in the worst environment possible and didn't bother even attempting to be civilized. He's been in jail multiple times while underaged, in a coma from attempting to overdose, attacked our mother smashing up her car since she wouldn't give him money and has abandoned his kids to two different girls while they're no over than 3. People like this won't function normally even under guidance and deserve to die alone on their deathbed with no contact.

      This is what the angel on my shoulder says. To let it go because all that will come from it is drama. It just feels so wrong that my mom is selling a nice complete dumbbell set that belongs to my dad and doesn’t even bother asking me if I want it, when she knows I’m making my own home gym. It’s unbelievable to me and honestly makes me feel completely disrespected and it feels disrespectful to my dad.

        just take them, do it for your dad. wtf are they going to do with the money by selling your dad's nice weights? spend it on useless garbage is my guess. your brother originally took them away, now it's your turn to return the favor.

        Just take it all, your brother is a shithead, and it seems your mom doesn't have morals whether or not she is divorced from your father, it's still his equipment, that he LET you and your brother use, and your brother took it among himself to take it while not even using it.

        Any family spat will blow over in a matter of days/weeks.

        The only thing I'd be concerned about is the possibility of your mother NEEDING the money from the possible sale, but even then, it's not her property, and she has no right to sell it.

      It’s brewing my dude. I used to fear him because he was 2 years older and naturally growing up that’s a huge advantage. I haven’t had a relationship with him in over 10 years, not because of the weights, that’s just one of many many things he’s done to completely disrespect me and push me around. He’s been such an awful person my dad and him don’t even speak anymore. He is my moms golden boy tho and she defends him and enables to the end, even when he’s wrong. I don’t see him at all anymore, aside from maybe 1 or 2 times a year. I won’t be surprised if I snap and beat him tho within a year or two. It’s been a life time in the making.

          Let go of hatred, but don't forget who someone is. If OP is telling the truth and his brother has been a bully his whole life, even as an adult, then that's not something you necessarily forgive. You learn to not let your guard down around them and remember who their true colors really are. So yes, let go of hatred, but never forget who the person truly is.

            I'm in the same situation as you my guy. Am the youngest of a brotherhood of three. My older brothers used to bully me a lot from maybe 5-6 to around 14 15 / start of puberty. This completely ruined my self esteem and I got fat as fuck as a pre teen which eventually led to even more bullying. Karma did things right tho because one of them literally became schizophrenic and I know that the other is deeply depressed because of family stuff and never being able to truly accept himself and deal with his internal traumas.

            All I can say to you is to let go of the anger and just forgive him, live your own life and burn the bridges. These type of people will never take any hint of responsibility for their actions and so it's not really possible to pull things together again.
            if you don't do it you'll carry that anger with you and inflict it upon your own loved ones, and you don't want that, I learned that the hard way. Just buy the gym set and be at peace

            Little bros that never grew up and are still morones. I should bend your arm behind your back and give you a noogy. I'd be horrified knowing my little bro grew up to be a BITCH. The world is tough cupcake. I molded you into someone that can survive it.

            Because they aren't perfect. They have flawed judgment, flawed observational skills, flawed understanding of social relationships and poor leadership and conflict resolution skills.

      What's going to happen?
      It will cause a rift in my family. My mom will be mad at me and probably cry and she'll go tell my brother. He will threaten me with violence. My mom may call the cops and tell them I'm stealing. Again, favoritism. My brother automatically has mommy on his side. It's a massive shit box to open up. Ultimately it'll be better to just swallow my pride and let it go, as tempting as it is, and as disrespectful as it seems to both me and my dad to sell such a nice set. Families can suck when you're the bottom bitch

    Hey man, I understand your situation. My dad died in 21 of cancer. He didn’t have much, but everything he had that had any value he took very good care of to give to me. Long story short, when he died I had nowhere to store any of it because I live in an apartment with a roommate and go to college. My extended family (his mom, his brothers) assure me I can keep everything on the piece of land he was on and they’ll watch over it. I get wrapped up in school and 3 month later I go over there and everything is gone. Literally everything except what would legally go into my name because it was 1) in my dads name, or 2) it was on his tax record. It was basically just a boat trailer and nothing else. The only thing I have left are some classic guns that I made the decision to take out of his house a week after he passed, and some old pictures. Nothing else. And there is nothing I can do about it because there’s no way to prove any of it was mine.

    Sometimes your own family will fuck you over. The absolute best thing you can do is say your peace and be rid of them. I can promise you a graceful exit is the best way to handle that situation.

    Your brother sounds like the biggest loser in the universe. Your father should have nipped this when your brother stole the weights first and your mother showing favoritism is fucked. It's a comedy of fuck ups serendipitously coming together to fuck you over at this point. I would probably buy them and patronize the fuck out of him. Every time you see him pretend like you did it to help out your poor charity case of a brother. Overtly talk to him like a white woman talks to a crippled kid. Maybe buy prop money and have him walk in on you counting it a couple times but slip in a real bill that you can give to him if he catches you, like a grandmother handing out butterscotch to children.
