Are they all better than you?

Two of my sister-in-laws think that they are perfect. They think that their children are perfect, their lives are perfect, etc. They are soooo bloody opinionated too! They have a comment about everything and it's usually negative. Are all sister-in-laws "HOLIER THAN THOU"?

Yea my sister in law is a real b***h, says my house is dirty, calls my daughter a nuisance. I think thats just the way, because your married to their family they think they are better then you. Im always getting told that i'm not doing something with my daughter the correct way or i shouldn't do this or that.i think it's in their nature. on the other hand my other sister in law is a godsend, she will help me out when im struggling and has become a good friend. My advice is just smile n grit your teeth. And mybe have a word with your partner.

No-one is perfect but the people who think they are and treat others as if they are, to me are very happy people, because being happy and not perfect is more important, and those who think their children are perfect are the once that usually get so disappointed with their children later on...I love your little girl, I think she looks like a little angel, i love her little face...

It so happens that most people think they are so superior either to their Bro's wife or to sis's husband and their family. It is just because they think and feel that this person who have come into the family is trying to steal their love and relationship with their bro or sis. This happens mostly with the women folk and they want to maintain their authority.

not all sister in law are better then thou. Infact the ones that you are dealing with are probably trying to hide the fact that they are insecure with in themselves. Most of the time the people that are constantly pointing out what is wrong with you or your family are actually hiding the fact that they feel very low about themselves. And they are usually trying to bring you down to there level.
