I have an older brother and an older sister. Me and my sister both feel some bitterness (my sister moreso than me) towards my parents and my brother. We feel like my parents spend waaaaaay more time with my brother’s kids than with ours (we all have 2 kids each).
Here’s the thing: My parents pretty much raised my brother’s kids (he had his daughter at a young age and him and his gf didn’t move out until their daughter was 12 yrs old).
My parents buy waaaaay more things for my brother’s kids than ours, spend waaaay more time with my brother’s kids than ours. The only time my parents spend time with my kids is if I bring the kids over to my parents house (they never initiate), or if I have a doctor’s appt my dad will come over and watch the boys.
This hurts me and my sister a lot, and I’m trying not to be bitter about it but its hard. What can I do to feel less upset over this? Ideas?
