Do you have a sibling who seems to always attract attention? You know, they always have admirers and have no problem finding a boyfriend/girlfriend, while you on the other hand... well, you're cool, you guess.
Well honey, you are not alone.
I, too, have an older sister that was deemed by what seems like the whole world as pretty, hot, gorgeous, and pretty much everything that I wasn't. It didn't matter where we went, she would always get looks and comments from several guys, young and old. And any guy she wanted, she got.
She would pick me up from class sometimes and all I would hear from my guy friends is, "Your sister's hot. Does she have a boyfriend?" and all kinds of other nonsense. I get it, compared to me, she was a bombshell. And she never let me forget it. She loved pointing out my flaws every chance she got. Whether it be about my hair, my face, my body hair, etc.
Now I was a skinny kid up until about 15-16, and I can recall her making fun of my lack of a butt as early as 11 years old. I didn't know 11 year olds were supposed to be voluptuous. 🙄
In hindsight, I truly believe she got off on being the "hot" sister. And now I realize how much all of her negative comments affected me. That doesn't mean that I think I'm hideous, but I always have those moments of: "I wish I was gorgeous/beautiful" or "I wish I had a nice butt" and so on and so forth. That feeling of not being good enough, it's not a nice feeling and I would love if it just went away, but unfortunately, it doesn't quite work like that.
Well, I think that's all I have to say about that. It's not very long, but who cares? This isn't me throwing a pity party or anything, this is something that has just been on my mind, so I thought I'd get it off my chest and share my experience as the "ugly" sister.
