My sister has been driving me crazy. - February 4th 2009, 08:58 PM

She walks around all the time thinking "I've got the worst life ever."
She has to go to summer school for three weeks this coming summer, so apparently she thinks her life has become sh*t because of it. She is constantly acting like she has the worst life in the world. And the kicker of it all is that she always gets a hug and some advice from whoever she complains to. But when I try to talk someone in our family to, I get pushed away. Which is something I don't understand. So it makes me super angry. I don't want to hurt my sister's feelings, so a couple of times I just kindly told her that it was bugging me, but she just blew up at me. I'm not saying that my sister doesn't deserve someone to listen to her, but it just seems like some people could use that kind of support right now more than others.

Anyway, it's really bugging me. I try to shut her out, but...it doesn't really work.





A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts

hey amanda, sisters are a major pain in the ass, i have 3 of them. i dont know what to tell you about getting pushed away from your family, but i do know that its really insensitive for them to do that to you. and she shouldnt be flipping out on you just because she has issues, we all do. maybe she just feels like she doesnt get enough attention. im not sure. but at least you can come on here and talk and get support from people. altho i dont think alot of people know what to say since im the only one who responded so far. . but i really hope that things get better for you.

Ahaha yeah emo people. Getting people to feel sorry for them.

Take what Dale Carnegie has to say though:

"Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have."
-Dale Carnegie

Let your sister do whatever just concentrate on your own life.

Give your sister some time.

We ALL go through low times like this. Things make not be noticeably bad for her but you don't necessarily know how she is feeling about herself or other things happening in her life... Or things that are perhaps not happening that she wishes they were.

I can see why it might be frustrating but she maybe just needs the comfort right now. If you need to, just distance yourself from the issues.

I don't quite know what to say about your family pushing you away. Next time you have a problem, confront them about it. They are obviously loving and caring and I'm sure they would take an interest. A lot of parents are awkward in situations like that, they don't want to appear to be intruding or anything.
