- Wedding: November 2016
I have a younger sister under the age of 20. We’ve been close throughout our lives and I’ve always made our relationship a priority when I lived close by with monthly hang outs, weekly calls, video, all that. I live farther away now and have for a while but still made our relationship a priority from afar. The truth is she has had almost no interest in maintaining a relationship with me for the past year specifically for no apparent and obvious reason. I’ll ask her why she never reaches out and her response is that ‘she doesn’t reach out to anyone’ which is untrue. She’s been lying and maniupulating quite frequently.
I’ve tried asking her if there was something I did to make her act that way, or something I could do to improve our relationship. Shes the one whos changed and she doesn’t seem to care. She also has an awful boyfriend who doesn’t care about her which has to some extent made her push all of us away too.
I know teenagers are dumb but many of the things she has done in the last year make me seriously question her ethics, morals and values. She’s been pretty hurtful with some of her demands to me.
Although I love my sister, its hurting me to continue with trying to keep our relationship going since its all one sided. I am not seeking to be estranged but rather back off from whatever is left of our relationships. Any support from bees who’ve been there would be appreciated.
