My sister phased me out and now my parents are too


DEAR AMY: There is a lot of animosity and competitiveness between my sister and me. I don’t trust her with my feelings because I always get hurt. I’ve always received good grades, I financially support myself, and have a

stable job. My parents have never had to worry about me. However, she is always demanding their attention (and I really don’t like attention) and I have started feeling invisible.

My sister recently had a baby girl, the first grandchild. She never sends me pictures but sends them to others, hasn’t invited me to see my niece, and phases me out from the rest of the family. None of this is surprising to me — I actually expected it.

But what is bothering me is that my parents are phasing me out, too. They send me a text every now and then to see how I’m doing, but they never visit me (I live eight hours from where they live).
