My sister likes to constantly remind me that she has more “close friends” than me to make me feel bad about myself. She always says it in such a mean spirited way. Even though I do have good friends, I don’t really have any close friends and her comments really hurt me. My sister also calls me stupid because I’m terrible at math and makes fun of me when I cry when I’m upset. I’ve talked to both my parents about this issue but my father doesn’t think it’s something to be too concerned about. My mom says I’m too sensitive. How do I cope in a situation like this? A professional Christian counselor I saw for about 3 months talked to my dad about this issue, but he didn’t take what the counselor told him to heart. To this day, my parents have done nothing to try to correct her. I really need help

Hey girl,
I get where you’re coming from. I have 4 little siblings, and my two brothers closest to my age can be REALLY mean. I’m working through this myself, so I don’t have all the answers, but I’ve got a few.
1. Okay, so she’s teasing you about not having friends, and about being stupid? As long as she says these things it’s going to hurt you, because you love her. However, you need to that what a person says about you doesn’t define you. Don’t let her hurt your self-esteem, or make you feel worthless and stupid. When she says these things, stop and remind yourself that none of it us true. God sees you as precious, as He has made you everything that you are. You are HIS daughter, and His work in progress. If anyone only points out your flaws to be mean, or teases you about something that isn’t true, don’t listen. They’re wrong, and will hopefully see it someday.
2. Never let anyone tell you that you’re too sensitive. I am SUCH a sensitive person, I cry at happy things as much as sad, and spend most movies in tears. But guess what? God made you, and God made me, and He doesn’t make mistakes. He has given you emotions for a reason, use them for His kingdom’s sake, and don’t be ashamed that you might be touchier than other people in your family.
3. Your parents love you and want the best for you, but they are flawed sinners. They don’t mean to let you get hurt, if they knew how hurt you truly were they’d rush to your rescue, cause that’s what parents do. Try sitting down and talking to them very seriously about it (with respect!) and they should listen. If they don’t, then I would suggest going to another trusted adult about the situation with your sister, and how your parents aren;t doing anything.

Above all my sister, be understanding of your sister and of your parents. “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” Maybe your sister isn’t treating you right, but that’s never an excuse to not treat her right. She’s God’s precious daughter too, always treat her as such. Lastly, pray. Prayer is more powerful and effective than anything else you can do.
