Healthy siblings bring a whole new meaning to the word 'family'. And they give you a chance to learn from their examples and grow.

But when it comes to toxic siblings, they tend to think they know better than  you and can be mean, petty and cause harm to others with no care or concern of the repercussions whatsoever.

Siblings with a  destructive complex thrive on making other people feel small. And it is not just about their attitude, but it is also that they are often compelling.

First, though, toxic siblings come in all sizes and colours. I want to take you through a list of toxic siblings you need to identify so you can be certain if you indeed have a toxic sibling.

How to cope with family who fail to understand your emotional pain or struggles

It had only been 3 months after her life threatening operation.  Fatima, found herself constantly feeling exhausted and in a lot of physical pain.  She was frustrated because her body was forcing her to do everything extremely slowly.

She knew how much had to be done for her 2 year old daughter and husband who was out working all the time, and felt massively guilty about this.

And, to make matters worse, her husband was piling pressure on her, insinuating that she was making herself become fat and useless by lazing around the house doing nothing.

I mean, can you believe it?

What do you do when a family member, who thinks they are helping you, but is actually making your life more difficult, doesn’t understand your struggle despite your best efforts to explain things to them?

How do you cope with:-

  • Family who make you feel depressed and disrespected when you are around them.
  • Family who don’t seem to realize that they are a big part of the pain you are going through. They say they care about you but you don't feel that way about them.
  • Family who tell you that you’re over reacting to things all the time, and have the nerve to call you a big baby.

How do you cope with all of that?
