My sister and I have been fighting a lot lately. Ever since we both turned 21, we hang out in the same group with the same people. I can tell people are growing annoyed with us and our bickering. We just fight over dumb stuff. She also goes after the same guys I go after and she will tell stupid stories and when I try to say “that’s not how it went” she just ignores me. I am really getting irritated and I’m tired of having her there all the time and I think it’s weighing on my friends because they seem very uncomfortable with it. She also borrows my clothes all the time and I can’t stand it anymore!! What can I do to make her stop?
Well, maybe you should hang out with a friend or two that’s not in that group. Take a break and get away. In regards to the clothes, sit down with her when no one’s around and tell her she needs to ask before borrowing stuff but let her know that the answer won’t always be yes. Also, bring up the idea that you think she goes after the same guys as you, talk everything out. Maybe a break from each other would help but also make sure you express your feelings to her when no one’s around so there’s no pressure. Let her know you don’t like bickering in front of everyone and you are worried you will both lose your friends if you don’t stop. I hope that helps you Kelly! Thanks for your question.
