My sister and I are adults. She is a very jealous, insecure person.
She is the type you don't want to share your successes with because she will make it all about her-- either by copping an attitude or by having a pity party about why she can't achieve the same thing. It's totally depressing and really hit me hard today. I didn't tell her about this recent success but she heard anyway and now instead of being like any normal person and saying congratulations, she's totally throwing it in my face like I did something to hurt her.
I know it's pathetic, but it's still throwing me for a loop and I'm trying not to get depressed about it. I shouldn't be at all sensitive to her opinions, but it's hard to let it roll off when it's blood yknow. I wish she'd quit bemoaning and achieve some of the things she's quite capable of. She always plays in my shadow as if she's inferior and it's such a load of crap!
