We have a strange feature in many families: very often conflicts arise in families where there is a sister. I never had a sister, but it was always interesting. Is it really that hard to mend a relationship with your sister? How does it always happen that it is the sisters who cannot share something among themselves? I, of course, may be biased, but judge for yourself.
I recently heard a very interesting story. I don’t understand how it happened, but I met a girl in a coffee shop. We talked for some time, and she told me about her extraordinary life twists and turns.
She grew up in a good middle class family. The parents had money, but it was impossible to say that they were chic. She was the only and most beloved child in the family. And then a terrible grief happened.
Her aunt, who had a daughter of the same age, died. It seems that they, children, were both 7 years old then. The father gathered a family council and said that they would take their aunt’s daughter to themselves and live together. My friend said that she still remembers the joy that she experienced. After all, she will have a real sister.
The girl in the family appeared as a small frowning monster. But everyone understood her condition and treated her with respect. The children’s room was redesigned, a second bed was installed and they were warned that even some things would have to be shared.
Over time, the girl got used to it and became a real nightmare for her own daughter. But the parents did not notice this point-blank. In all quarrels, they took the side of their sisters, and their own daughter was constantly scolded.
It got to the point that when it was time to enter the university, they paid for her tuition on a paid basis. And her own daughter could not enter the budget and she herself went to the correspondence department.
Such a gesture of parents is difficult to understand, and she could not forgive them for this. I immediately rented a room from a local grandmother and went to work. After I learned that my sister was also staged a magnificent wedding.
At what point did it happen that the parents began to love their adopted daughter more than their own? I wondered this question for a long time.
