…y do not understand. I think anyone who has known me for a long time will speak well of me, and yet, I have a sister who, despite reading the many things friends say about me and to me, remains convinced that I am, in some way inferior to her, and that I must be discussed in negative terms. So much so, that everybody who hears about me from my sister, forms a negative opinon of me.
The fact is that you outshine our sister in many ways, so she feels insecure and inferior to you... It's a kind of compulsive projection because they can't face the truth that in the way they assess people, you surpass her. I'm very familiar with this dynamic as I have four sisters who struggled academically while I did not, and they just can't bear it !!!I don't care about what grades they got/and such like, but they can't let it go! There resentment is like a cancer in their soul, eating away at them. The best we can do is keep our distance and not take it personally.
