Hello mylotters! I would like to know your thoughts on this.... When you were a child, did it ever occur to you of leaving your family because you get envious with your sister/brother? Honesty is the best policy hehe...

I guess you want to hear a yes, coz that would add up to a juicy story. But unfortunately I would have to say No , I never got envious of my sister. She is much older than me and she was like a second mum to me. Its just the 2 of us , my mum and dad that made up the family. She took good care of me.We did have our share of fights but nothing too bad. Perhaps, she would have wanted to leave, considering the fact that I was more the brat and being younger got more attention.

Hi cbee thanks for responding..Unfortunately I am not expecting a yes answer here alone hehe. I want to hear each and everyone's experience and thoughts on this.. may it be a yes or a no. Me and my siblings got along well when we were young, but there was a situation that I felt envious with my little brother. I was the youngest child before my mom gave birth to my younger brother, so all the attention that I'm getting was transferred to him (probably your older sister felt the same way). I was thinking of leaving and told my sister about it. Being protective with her sibling, she didn't leave my side. It was just a childish thought anyways..

LOL. That is a cute story you have there. I guess it happens a lot, especially if you are a child and don't understand much of what is going on.When I was born my sis was old enough to understand things. But I am sure she must have had her share of angry moments having me around.LOL

I couldn't agree more hehe. A child's way of thinking is not yet developed so when i felt that all the love in the world was losing, i got jealous, angry, envious..That was a burden that i carried for couple of years until i started to realized that the world has more to offer, that my parents love me..that my younger brother didn't take my parents love away from..that just like him, his brain wasn't developed yet lol...It was a slow process but that was enough to understand. I was probably around 9-10 years old when i got hold of everything.

No, my brothers and sisters and I talked about running away from home, even stored up food (the bread got moldy lol) for it. But never because any of us was jealous of one of the others.

That was a cute story you have there, a little similar with mine lol. The jealousy thing happened when my brother was born. The attention you used to have will surely be transferred to the much more needy (my little brother needed it). There was also a time when we asked our parents to eat in a restaurant. We used to eat out every Friday so when we didn't go out one Friday, we insisted. Unfortunately, the three of us were lacking the convincing power because they denied our requests (they probably didn't have money lol). So, we decided to leave and go to my aunt's house not far away. We want them to look for us, to brought us home only if...they will take us out for dinner. The sad thing was, we were beaten..especially my elder sister because she was the one who has the idea hehe..

Their an instances I think of it when my parents sides with my sister, but I am still young and could not think of anything else to go. It is hard to be a vagabond when you have no money in your pocket. it is not a good attitude for a child to disobey her parents, because they scold you because they want you to correct your mistakes. And, to grow as a responsible adults. I think it is hard to left a family when you are a child and have no work, oi money and the greatest weakness is when you experience hunger. A lot of many children gone missing and becomes victim of yundicates or fall to the wrong person which I am afraid to happen to me.
