trying to help our sister

August 11, 2012 at 11:09 pm Leave a comment

we’ve been on the phone to our little sister. she is 11. almost 12. she is not having a good time of it at the moment. she is really unhappy where she is living. she is also getting in a lot of trouble for telling lies. and for bullying the other kids in her house.

we’ve been trying to be supportive, and say the right things. but what can we say? how can we help her when we’re also having a hard time ourselves? we cant really. but we try to do it anyway. cause we feel we must, because we feel we’ve failed her.

we somehow let her down. in a way we saved her, but we also let her down. its hard and it makes us feel confused. she was 8 when we got away from our bio family. we were 11. so if we saved her from going through even more years of abuse, why do we feel so bad? why do we feel such a responsibility towards her, and all of our siblings?

does the eldest family member always feel this way?
