Sister turned Half... - October 25th 2012, 07:38 AM

Hey all,
I have grown up with two sisters and have know both all my life. I don't like to say this but I love my older sister the most, she is the most amazing person ever!
But I recently found out that she and I have completely different dad's. I know not much has changed but it still feels so strange knowing we aren't 100% related.
Any advice on how to cope?

Be proud of your place in the cosmos. It is small, and yet...
it IS

Hey Ellie
I went through something similar a few years back with an aunt. It can be a bit of a shocker and it can feel a bit odd. But look at it this way: If you hadn't found out about this, would things be any different? No. So why do they have to change? When it comes to things like this, blood really doesn't matter. You guys have grown up together, been through a lot with each other, and you've always been there, you're always going to be sisters no matter who lives where or who has which parent. It doesn't make any difference to the bond you two share. Why let something like this change things negatively for the two of you when nothing has changed?
She's always had a different dad, and you guys clearly get on well together, so why does knowing about it have to make it weird between you?

If it really bothers you, talk to her. See what she thinks about it. But don't let it come between you, it's not worth it.

While I can defiantly see how it feels strange; you still have a deep connection and healthy/successful relationship with her and finding out this shocking news shouldn't change anything. You can still think of her as your sister, but she is also more than that: she is one of your best friends and I'm guessing someone that you truly trust. You guys didn't connect and have a good relationship because you thought you were each others sisters. You connected because you guys really like being around eachother, and really trusted each other.

Continue to work through this unfortunate shocking news and you will eventually get over the 'strange' feeling and continue to have a good relationship with her.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
