My siblings sort of bully me…and i want to stand up to them but dont know how. They say genuinely hurtful things as some sort of joke and then laugh. Im angry at my sister for enabling it, shes 18 and should know better and its so childish when she turns to him to insult me. My brother just keeps saying s***** things about me like how im weird, like weird things and generally he just has this attitude of youre weird and you should be normal. Ive been bullied as a kid and never really learned how to stand up for myself. I do think i should be able to and if you have trouble fitting in theres no point to keep whining about how rude everyone is, but i do think this is uncalled for and hurtful. I did kind of stand up for myself today but my mom says i should just ignore him. I think shes wrong, ignoring it w knt make it stop either, i know from experience. How do i be vulnerable with my siblings (bc theyre not always like this, theyre also very often genuinely kind) while still standing up for myself, making sure they dont do those things around me in the future either, and make sure they still like me? I know its stupid but i do want them to like me, learn from me and look up to me just like i can with them. I am also embarrassed that I am their target, because im an adult woman and there must be something wrong with me if im still the target of bullying.
