How do I keep my sister from ruining my holidays?
I love my sister and I have tried hard to get along with her. Every holiday I have hoped maybe we could put aside our issues and forgive and forget, but it never happens. She always comes over to my house, with something snotty and snide to say and hurts me deeply. Our parents are both abusive full blown alcoholics and I have distanced myself from them. But I had high hopes for my sister and I to at least get along, especially during the holidays. I want to have a happy holiday with her, but I just can't take her negative comments and negative attitude any more. I feel put down, hurt and angry, what can I do?
