im the youngest of three siblings. i have an elder sister, 3 yrs older than me. We're not in good terms with my mom. She tends to compare me with my sister every now and then...which for me is pathetic because she can't understand the essence of uniqueness. I've done my best to be the best daughter one could have. I'm doing good in school, i didn't get myself pregnant, i helped people...in short, i'm climbing the tallest mountain without having any support. Everything was not appreciated. She's still looking for that one very tiny mistake which she could batter me. And it fells like hell for me. a slow torment. how can one be a "GOOD" daughter?!

I know how you feel but my mom doesn't do that to us the other way around it is my father. I am the eldest. You are right,each of us have their own uniqueness but sometimes parents does not see for who we are. They keep on camparing us to others. I think you are good on your own just keep on doing what is right just like being a good person to other, good in school etc. Don't let your feelings of anger subside in yourself because this will ruin you. Just think of the positive side of it. Now I am a mom but only have one daughter I don't know if I will make a mistake of doing that (comparing) when I have another child. But deep within me I know I will not do that to my children. This will be part of your life so I think just learn what lesson it will bring to you when you grow up. Your just 19 and so many things will come to your life not just that. More heavy problems. Keep up on being good.

I am the oldest of the daughters. I have three younger sisters. My mom compares them all to me. I hate it. My sister below me is everything my mom wants her to be. the two below her my mom says can be a pain in the butt like me. I hate it when she says that. I think over time things get a little better. I moved away and I can't see her, but we talk, and we seem to understand eachother better. All I can say is keep doing what you feel is right, cause thats all you can do, and over time things should get better. good luck.
