I fall asleep sometimes crying softly into my pillow because sometimes I feel that my mother and everyone else favors my sister over me. Even though my sister has been abusive physically and verbally, everyone seems to choose her over me. I know my mother does not mean to, or I hope she doesn't, but it seems my opinion or my feels come second to my sister's. It hurts because I've stood by her during all the rough times while my mom has gone through while my sister has deserted her. This feeling has resided in me for years as my sister has stolen friends from me and turned them against me to bully me. It also becomes a reality when our close, old family friend confessed he likes my sister more than me... even though she has abused him too. I feel sick to my stomach, asking myself "why am I trying to be a good friend and daughter?"
