I don't really know. Today is just a bad day, I guess... Over the past week or so, my little brother and step-sister have suddenly been acting like best friends. I'll just say that they have never gotten along before. In the 2 years that they'd been 'forced' to live together, she would frequently yell at him for no reason and make mean comments out of nowhere. That type of behavior hasn't stopped, so I wonder--- why is he putting up with her in his personal life as well as his home life? Why does he feel that he can hang out with her all day long; go out to parties, get drunk with her (and the rest of his friends, mind you) and have fun with her? I don't understand how they can suddenly be best friends all of a sudden. I'm glad they're getting along, I guess-- that's great... but I've always been the big sister who he could tell anything to and now he doesn't need me anymore. I feel horrible. I feel jealous of her and kind of odd that she's stolen my brother away... Then again; I'm not really jealous that her only friends are a bunch of 15-16 year olds and she is 21. She's kind of mean spirited and rude and very immature. Maybe that's why she 'gets along' with them? It's kind of weird. I guess if I was truly feeling jealous, I could always try to make friends my own age instead of being all alone-in my bedroom- every day. I just feel so inadequate- put next to basically any other person I can think of. I'm just a weed in the flower garden of life.
