I do and don't. I mean, I feel that both my brothers are my mother's favorites as she kinda does just about anything they want and has never shut the door in their faces. But I'm sure that my older brother feels like I'm my uncle's and dad's favorite as I've been 'successful' in some aspect. Our younger brother, I don't think gives a rat's ass. So I think it's a mutual jealousy.

I don't envy so much what my younger sister has, as I loathe what I lack compared to everyone else including her. She's more normal than me and has the drive to get things that she wants (disregarding the fact that after getting it she almost immediately loses interest in it). I'm generally the smarter one and probably the more ambitious one, but feeling ostracized from the norm has left me with no drive to do anything, cuz I mean what's the point?

Other than that my sister is filthy, untidy, has a bad attitude and has made too many enemies in life. What's there to envy? xD

Everyone on here complains how inferior or how jealous they are, the fact of the matter is you chose to be like that and your younger/older siblings chose to be like they are. SAure there are some things you don't choose, but majority is choice. You choose not to study. I dun care if you have ADD, because I do, and it just takes way more effort to study then others, but using it as an excuse is just that, an excuse. Those with disabilities that strive for greatness are the true heroes of our world. (Example: Steve Hawking)

That's a good point. In the end that's what is central to being an older sibling, and I think even one's obligation.

I don't feel inferior to my younger brother, he is lazy avg grades and not really athletic, I get good grades, I work and I always help my family, I am active and etc, but you know I really wish my little brother would surpass me I really do, he is Bi-polar and has ADHD and has high anxiety and takes EVERYTHING TO HEART, people compare him to me and I know it hurts him dearly, they call him fat stupid lazy and always put him down when he does things even when they don't mean to, he takes it the wrong way. I wish he would surpass me, I want people to encourage him that he can do anything like they say with me. I always worry about how rough his life is going to be I just hope he can change and starting doing better for himself. srry wall of txt

Not particular. The age difference is too big for that. The only thing that bugs me, she's allowed to learn Filipino and English where as I was not allowed when I was her age - as my father thought it would confuse a child. Though I shouldn't complain, I am more privilege.

I think that I guess I am sometimes, since my sister has had a lot more opportunities than me... For example she's in French immersion, is learning the piano and violin AND. Has had ballet and tap dancing lessons...

But I think if my jealously over a 8 year is is THAT strong than I have a problem... Plus I feel as though my parents concentrate on me even more than her... Plus they think I'm more responsible and stuff...

So yea, some aspects I envy her, but in reality, I like my life just the way it is and wouldn't change it for the world.

Lmao.
I'm the focus of my mom's eyes.
What you talking about?

It's quite the opposite for me, i'm the youngest and talented at a lot of things. Sometimes I feel that my older siblings feel inferior to some of the things I do and speak about so there are things i've stopped. I hope they don't.. I'll always be the one looking up to them and not the other way.

I have a younger sister and she's 11. She has gotten better grades than what I did at that age. It makes me feel really jealous about it but at least I'm still the taller one hehe
