Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I am so sorry that your sorry is trying to push you buttons and make you act in a negative way.
Are you going to let her? It seems that, at least for the moment, you are letting her have the upper hand.
For one reason or the other she seems to enjoy having this little bit of power and control over you and making you upset.
Don't give her the satisfaction any more. In that way, you will triumph and she will lose and stop messing with you.
In the morning, you can try to make it to the bathroom before she does.
You can hang a little bell on the door so that you will know when she gets out.
If she hurts your feelings, don't let her see it.
If she makes you cry, don't let her know.
Stop making it easier for her to push you around. She is probably jealous of you for some reason, but she will never tell you why, so don't bother asking.
When you stop showing her that she is bothering you, she will stop.
Remember the book that I suggested that you purchase?
I still suggest it. This book will help you a great deal.
I believe that I also suggested another book. If I did not, I will mention it now. Getting, reading, and learning from these books will change your life for the better.
I have a few fabulous books that will help you enormously.
I wish you the courage to stand up to her by ignoring her childish antics. Even if she is older, YOU have to be the bigger and more adult sister by ignoring her silly antics.
I wish you great success and shall continue to keep you in my prayers.
