I’m so sorry to hear about this. I think it must be so hard to watch someone you love be rude and destructive and not really be able to do anything about it. Sounds like she has some issues to work through, but hopefully that won’t be at your expense. Maybe her moving out will make her appreciate her family more?

OK,  I have a younger sister that views me the same way you view your older sister.  My sister views me as immature, and for about two years, she just stopped talking to me.

From that perspective, all I can say is be patient.  Your sister is probably very confused about what she wants in life.  The best thing you can do is to have an open mind and heart, and to not hold a grudge when she does come around.  And that could take years.  Speaking from personal experience. 🙂

I feel for you.  I have similar views of my younger sister.  It is heartbreaking to care so much about someone and have them reject you like that.  I can only imagine how difficult this is for your parents (and they have let her live at home during this!  hmpf!)  Personally, I am believer in tough love.  I can only bend over backwards so many times before I say, “I care about you, but you need to figure this out on your own.”  It is difficult to stand and watch, but maybe it will take the realization of her family NOT being there for her for your sister to come around (“you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone” type of thing).  Stay strong and focus on the wonderful family you have surrounding you.
