It has been over a year... - August 9th 2009, 04:58 PM

since the last time I spoke to my half sister.
I love her to death but she said and did some
things that were unnecessary then she turned
around and said that I was the one doing the
unnecessary things and that I was avoiding her.

She is still snide and rude cocky when I do get
some words out of her. I honestly don't know
what else to do. I want to be able to see her
and my dad and younger half brother again and
be around them but it isn't possible due to her
refusing to be anywhere near me.

What should I do to try and get her to at least
tolerate me being around my family??

Have you tried to talk to her about it and explain the way you're feeling? Or what about if you try to get through to your father and/or your step brother and maybe they can help you out? What you're asking for is not a totally odd demand and you have every right to spend time with them because they are, in fact, your family.

Some people clash - and that's okay. Two mature individuals are able to put those differences aside, especially when it comes to a family setting. There has to be some kind of compromise made here. Talk to her about it and explain the way you feel. I hope that she starts to see your side of things but if not, don't allow her to control what you do.

Is there any way for you to just go over there and spend some time with your dad and step brother? If she's going to be completely rude, ignorant and immature, let her be, but don't let her control what you do. If you want to see the other members of your family, don't allow her to prevent you from doing so. They're your family too.
