The more I try to help and make my sister happy. She is still wanting more from me. I try and now I just can't do it anymore. What do I do? As she is my sister but hey get a job or try something. I can't help you no more. I tried to tell her no. But she keep's asking me for rides or food. And you know I don't have the funds anymore. I can't drive 30 miles out of my way and do things for her anymore just to make her happy. I tried and she only wanted more. What would you do?

I know that must be tough. But you have to do what is right for you too. You cannot always take care of others all the time. You need to watch out for yourself because if you don't, who will? I know you love your sister but you shouldn't let her take advantage of you. If would be really different if you had extra money but you don't. She should realize this and if she really loves you she won't want you to suffer because of her wants. Hang in there! I know it is a tough situation.

having lil sisters canbe a pain sometimes...i used to be bothered having to share a room ..pretty much everything earlier but now we are more like friends .I think it wil be good to let her know how u feel. Since you didnt mention her age i am not sure whether this will work but hey sounds like you are a wonderful sister!;)

HI well, she is 49. And I'm the younger one. I really wish she would get a job. And do things for herself. She alway's say's she does but it's alway's someonetaking her doing for her. Yes Living the way she does I guess is a full time job. When ever I ever needed help I got told well, you know I would if I could or no. Well, now it's my turn. Bit thank you anyway. I tried now for year's I'm done.

Tough Love you have to say NO and mean it. It will hurt you and her but you more because she will say things to you that will make you upset. Pray (if you do) and let it go. You can't do for her and you too.

I went out to her house last night to visit and bring her a present as she was Baptized yesterday. I didn't go as I don't believe she mean's it. again. So I went and gave her green tomatoes which she loves. She told me how everything went and then asked me to take her to store to buy eggs and milk for her grandkids and nefews. I felt bad but I did tell her no. As store wasn't close to her house and I have no gas. She hardly talk after that. Yes I felt bad. Thank you.
