SELF_REFERENCE_FROM_TRIGGER, therefore it cannot recursively delete itself: []

Hi All,
       i have a trigger in which i am inserting reverse records.i have imple mented the trigger its working fine for insertion . now i want that if i update or delete a record its reverse record should also get updated or deleted.
       my trigger is given below:-
       trigger Trigger_FBGFamily on FBG_Family__c (before insert, before update, 
                                            before delete, after insert, 
                                            after update, after delete) {
    FBGFamilyTriggerHelper.newFBGFamily = trigger.new;
    FBGFamilyTriggerHelper.oldFBGFamily = trigger.old;
    FBGFamilyTriggerHelper.newMapFBGFamily = trigger.newMap;
    FBGFamilyTriggerHelper.oldMapFBGFamily = trigger.oldMap;   
       if(!FBGFamilyTriggerHelper.runTrigger) {
                                                if( Trigger.isAfter ){
                                                    if(Trigger.isInsert ){
                                                 if( Trigger.isBefore ){
                                                    if(Trigger.isDelete ){
        my helper class is given below:-
        public class FBGFamilyTriggerHelper {
    public static List<FBG_Family__c> newFBGFamily = new List<FBG_Family__c>();
    public static List<FBG_Family__c> oldFBGFamily = new List<FBG_Family__c>();
    public static Map<Id, FBG_Family__c> newMapFBGFamily = new Map<Id, FBG_Family__c>();
    public static Map<Id, FBG_Family__c> oldMapFBGFamily = new Map<Id, FBG_Family__c>();
        public static boolean runTrigger = TRUE;
     Public static void CreatingReverseFamilyRecords(){
        List<FBG_Family__c> ListFamilyToInsert = New List<FBG_Family__c>();
         For(FBG_Family__c Family : newFBGFamily)
            FBG_Family__c ReverseFamily = New FBG_Family__c();
            ReverseFamily.Sister_Company__c = Family.Sister_Company2__c;
            ReverseFamily.Sister_Company2__c = Family.Sister_Company__c;

        if(ListFamilyToInsert.Size() > 0){
            runTrigger = FALSE;
          Insert ListFamilyToInsert;
            runTrigger = TRUE;

    public static void deletingReverseFamilyRecords(){
         //To store Family ids
    list<id> Famids = new list<id>();
    for(FBG_Family__c Family : oldFBGFamily)
        system.debug('old list'+oldFBGFamily);

    //Collecting all records related to Family records
        list<FBG_Family__c> listOfFamilyToDelete = [SELECT id  
                                                    FROM FBG_Family__c 
                                                    WHERE ID IN : Famids
    //deleting Reverse records
     if(listOfFamilyToDelete.Size() > 0){
     delete listOfFamilyToDelete;
its not working for deletion.
Any suggestion? how to solve it?

I see in the Code you are deleting the same record through trigger which you have already deleted from the delete button 
sumit suwalkasumit suwalka
yes, i want to delete another reverse record which is created after insertion on record.
what should i change in code?
Lokesh KumarLokesh Kumar
can you please write down the use case which you want to implement
sumit suwalkasumit suwalka
in first method i am inserting a reverse record on insertion on same object via trigger. where   .Sister_Company__c = Sister_Company2__c; and
            .Sister_Company2__c =  Sister_Company__c;
so i want that if i delete first record its reverse record also get deleted
