Or shall we say, two. The two who cause Cari to run straight to bed after school and hide her head under her pillow, refusing to talk for the remainder of the evening.
I’ve realised that, in whatever I’ve done or in the choices I’ve made, there was always one person trying to get me down. As I matured, I learned to ignore these negatives and learned that if I had listened to them, I wouldn’t be where I am now. Where I am now is the best I could ever ask for.
Explaining this to Cari was hard because these two have had such an effect on Cari’s young sponge-like mind. Yes, it’s frustraiting, but I know one day she will grow up and realise that these type of people don’t deserve her acknowledgement. And if I can do anything to make that day come sooner, I will, no matter how many sisterly talks I have to go through.
Big Sister Tip #2: There’s always one who’s going to do their best to make you feel inferior. Eventually, you will realise that they are the ones who don’t deserve to know you.
If you want to fly, let go of the things that keep you down!
And smile, always.
