How can I get over the jealousy, anger, and frustration that my older sister has a bedroom that is probably twice the size of mine and has her own bathroom while my little sister and I have smaller rooms and have to share a bathroom??

Hello,

Thank you for your question. It can be really frustrating to see your siblings have luxuries that aren’t available to you and it must seem like they’re rubbing it just to make you feel worse. However, there are a few things you can do to put yourself in a better position. Have you considered talking to your parents and your sister and how the current arrangement makes you feel? Are there any privileges that you feel you should be prioritized to receive to even things out for you? You can also come up with some positive coping strategies to help you when your emotions overwhelm you. Some strategies include listening to music or reading a book to help calm you down. You could maybe exercise or go on a run to improve your mood. I hope this response has helped you and I want to commend you on how you’ve been dealing with the situation in a proactive and mature manner, even when it’s hard to do!

Kind Regards,
