Up and Down

I'm feeling a little confused again. I'm getting better, but still hurt. Last night my did and I went to our friend's birthday party. She's known us since we were tiny, like 3 years old. It was fun. I didn't stay the night like my sister, but I was there for twelve hours. It ended with us watching cheesy horror movies (like awful special effects) and tragedies while cuddling.
It was fun, but I slept 12 hours and feel like falling over. School starts in a week, so that's good and bad. Back to normal. My dad wants me to be more forceful with my little sis, because apparently I'm too nice but she scares me sometimes. Hopefully I can do the same thing during group work.

Ferretbandit, you should bring it up in group, about your sister. Maybe they can help you find a way to be stronger. People we love can and will use bullying tactics or sympathy tactics to manipulate us. Is it possible your sister is doing this because she knows you are afraid? I hope you can find a way to be helpful but also stand firm with your sister. It's because you do love her that you need to be strong and not fear her. Hugs & prayers for you both! 🙏🌼
