How I stopped fighting with my sister

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Trending - June 23, 2020

My sister and I did not get along. She was messy while I was neat. We didn’t share the same interests and couldn’t relate to each other. It seemed like all we did was argue and fight. 

One day, when I went to get a skirt I wanted to wear, I found it in a crumpled heap on the floor of my closet. My sister had dumped it there after wearing it. She hadn’t even asked me if she could wear it, and then when she’d finally returned it, she hadn’t even bothered to hang it up. For me, the neatnik, this was beyond insulting.

I felt totally justified in my anger and in all the negative thoughts about my sister that were swirling through my head.
