MY SISTERS ARE MEAN
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.
