QMy two sis­ters don’t like me and they al­ways tell me I don’t look like them.

They are right – they are beau­ti­ful and they look like our mother when she was a child. So now I’m think­ing maybe they aren’t my sis­ters after all.

Our mother has passed away so I can’t talk to her. In­stead I asked some of my cousins and they told me we are sis­ters, but I’m not sure what to be­lieve.

All this makes me feel re­ally bad and I don’t know what to do. Please help me. NS, EMAIL

AJust be­cause you don’t look like your sib­lings doesn’t mean you aren’t re­lated to them. Sib­lings of­ten look very dif­fer­ent.

I get the im­pres­sion your sis­ters are just be­ing nasty. They have no right to treat you the way they do and you shouldn’t feel bad about their ac­tions. They’re just be­ing mean and they won’t gain any­thing from this be­hav­iour.

I sug­gest you talk to some­one, per­haps an elder in your fam­ily, about how your sis­ters are treat­ing you. The elder needs to talk to them and find out why they’re do­ing this to you. In the mean­time keep your head high and love your­self the way you are.
