Question Know Anyone Like This?

Ever know or have someone close to you in your life that always seems to take what you say the wrong way, contradict or add to what you've said, and seldom agrees with anything that you say?

If so, assuming it's someone you care about, how do you deal with it?

yep....my youngest sister. She's almost 4 years younger than me. There isn't a damn thing I say or do that's right or good for her. She has never had anything good to say about me or to me. Ever since our teen years (back in the early 70's) she has always found ways of mocking me, making fun of me. Between her & my ex-husband, they succeeded in knocking my self esteem right into the sub-basement. It took me almost 15 years to get it back. In 2003, I pulled up my boot straps, put on my big girl panties & climbed out of the hole they put me in. My Sporty went along way in helping me do that.

Now, I see very little of my sister. I don't go out of my way to see her. In the last 5 years I have only seen her on Christmas Eve and when my dad was sick & dying. When mom is gone....I'm done. No more Christmas Eve....no more sister!

I worked long & hard on pulling myself back together after the verbal abuse from both her & my ex. I finally figured out that no one should have to put up with that kind of crap from anyone. Damn!! Now I feel like Stuart Smalley
"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!!!"
