My sister and I have a great relationship. We're very close. Which is surprising since we're not only on different pages in life, we're in different books and different libraries. My sister, Meaghan, and I are polar opposites. I'm kind of tortured and dark and she's all laid back and carefree.
It's no wonder that people gravitate towards her. She's funny, silly, and she really doesn't care about the little things. She just rolls with the punches where as I will analyze everything. Why did that waitress give me the stink eye? Was I not polite enough? I left her a nice tip. I don't understand. I'm pretty dramatic. I don't understand how two people who were raised by the same parents, in the same house, and afforded the same opportunities could be so different.
I love my sister and I would do anything for her. But sometimes I feel like I'm living in my little sister's shadow. I get why people like her better than me. Hell, I like her better than me. But it's so blatantly obvious that it sometimes stings. She even admits that my father likes her better than me, which doesn't help my daddy issues any.
She just makes and keeps friends so easily and seems immune to the things that bug me. I'll get upset for days if friends do something and don't include me and she just kind of shrugs it off. I wonder what it would be like to be the favorite all the time?
This post really doesn't have a point. It's more self-indulgent than anything.
