Joe Gorga thinks his strained relationship with his sister, Teresa Giudice, is going to make him a better person.

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” husband took to Instagram on Friday to share some words of wisdom for anyone who is in the midst of a family feud during the holiday season.

“Be thankful for all the struggles you go through, they make you stronger, wiser and humble,” the 48-year-old captioned a photo of himself. “Don’t let it break you. Let it make you.”

However, many of his fans were quick to call out the reality star as “hypocritical.”

“Lol- who ever said you were humble?” one person asked, while another person told Gorga to “take your own advice 😬.”

“Yes..but then…move on…enjoy your life! No drama or media sensation…” a third chimed in.

The siblings have been fighting for months after Giudice spread a rumor that his wife, Melissa, had cheated on him with actor Nick Barrotta.

However, the Gorgas quickly shot down the allegations and later skipped Giudice’s wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas after the blowout fight.

To add insult to injury, Joe later dissed the pair’s nuptials at BravoCon, saying he doesn’t think the newlyweds’ marriage will last.

The comments didn’t sit right with Giudice, who later slammed her estranged brother for his “mean-spirited” remarks.

“That’s not my brother. Like, I don’t know who he is now, like, what kind of character he’s trying to play,” the 50-year-old said on an episode of her “Namaste B$tches” podcast.

“I was hurt by it. Luis was hurt by it. I mean, as everyone saw, he did not come to my wedding,” she added. “That hurt us, and by what he just did at BravoCon, that’s very mean-spirited, very sad.”

Although Joe continues to talk about Giudice on social media, he previously told Page Six he was ready to put the family drama past him.

“At this point, I just don’t know what else to say. I’m tired. I’m tired of talking about this for 13 years,” he told Page Six exclusively at BravoCon.

“I’m 48 years old, and I’m happy that I woke up this morning and happy that I have healthy kids, a beautiful wife, a beautiful life, and I just want to be happy, man,” he continued. “This kind of drama is ruining my life.”
